Last week, Level-5 announced a third version of Yo-kai Watch 2 with the new Headliner version to go with Head and Founder. Famitsu shares a first look at some of the new yokai monsters that will be included in the upcoming 3DS title.
As reported earlier, Yo-kai Watch 2: Headliner will include a special “Buchinyan” medal, which can be read as a Nintendo 3DS QR code to get the “Jibakoma” shown on the bottom-left. To the right of him is the digital version exclusive “Masked Nyan”.
Save data from Yo-kai Watch 2: Head and Founder can also transfer to Headliner, so players can continue on their ghost-catching adventures on the third version of the game.
Yo-kai Watch 2: Headliner will feature a special Orochi Kyubi (top-left) among various other special yokai monsters that can join your party. All three versions have their own exclusive yokai, and yokai medals can be traded between the three as well.
Stories that weren’t told in the first two versions will also be available in Headliner, too, including a character quest with Dark Nyan and another with Ubaune.
The above is a look at the game’s action mode, called Yo-kai Watch Busters, that will feature stronger enemies in Headliner, which can be taken on with parties of up to four players. This mode also features exclusive bosses from the other versions of the game.
Here’s a closer look at some of the boss characters:
The yokai manager who gathers monsters, Ubaune (from Headliner).
A mysterious red yokai (from Founder).
A mysterious white yokai (from Head).
Finally, the two in the above image are new yokai. More details on them will be revealed in the near future.
Yo-kai Watch 2: Headliner is slated for release in Japan on December 13, 2014 for Nintendo 3DS.
