This Week In Imports: Which Is Scarier? Yo-kai Or Yakuza?

Recommended Videos

The big new game coming to Nintendo Switch this week is Yo-kai Watch 4, the latest game which brings together every protagonist up to this point in an adventure that spans four worlds. This time, the human characters fight alongside the yo-kai in action combat.


Apart from Yo-kai Watch 4, Yakuza 5’s PlayStation 4 remaster is also coming out, bringing back Kazuma Kiryu and the experience of playing as Haruka for the first time in even crisper visuals. Summer Pockets, Key’s latest visual novel that launched on PC last year, also comes to Switch this week.


While the console launch is next week, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, one of the first games in the Kickstarter era of gaming, launches this week on Steam.
