Level-5’s next major game is Youkai Watch, which takes place in Sakura New Town. It’s an ordinary town with schools and convenience stores… aside from people living alongside youkai, monsters and ghouls from Japanese folklore.
Keeta (the boy in the red shirt with the giant watch) spends his days with his friends. Fumi is Keeta’s classmate. Keeta runs into Kanchi (the boy with headphones) in his school’s hallway. Kuma is the leader of the punks.
Keeta can walk into different people’s homes. Fumi has a cute girl’s room. Kanchi’s place looks kind of upscale. Keeta lives at home with his parents and a couple of youkai.
Whisper, the ghost-like creature, is a yokai butler? (That’s what Level-5 says!) Jibanyan is an earthbound soul that’s Keeta’s friend. Old Lady Bakuro stuck with her human face and Kappa is a water-loving youkai.
Youkai Watch is in development for Nintendo 3DS.
