Nightmares are a whole new world in Youkai Watch from Level-5. While Keeta has some friendly monsters like Whisper the ghost-like creature that follows him, but the giant red Oni is not friendly. Usually, kids can wake up from bad dreams, but you can get trapped in "Oni Time."
During Oni Time, the atmosphere of the town changes and the enraged Oni will chase Keeta. Your best bet is to run because if the Oni catches Keeta you have to fight it. Level-5 hints that players might be able to overcome the Oni, if they’re strong enough.
Youkai Watch is scheduled to come out for Nintendo 3DS on July 11.
