Publisher Level-5 also uploaded a teaser trailer for the Yo-kai Watch Puni PuniEvangelion collaboration event.


The trailer shows off versions of Rei, Shinji, Mari, and Asuka as they appear in the game. They appear both as themselves and paired up with various Yo-kai. During the event, players can access special stages patterned after battles from the Rebuild of Evangelion tetralogy. They’ll also take on boss creatures patterned after the various angels.

Originally launched in 2015, Yo-kai Watch Puni Puni is a puzzle-based RPG for mobile devices. The English version of the game was known as Yo-kai Watch: Wibble Wobble, and was shut down in 2018. Similar to Puzzle and Dragons, the game challenges players with clearing puzzles to power up their party and win battles. They’ll need to match little blobs (called Wib Wobs in English) to combine them into larger blobs. Popping them does damage to the on-screen enemy. When the Evangelion crossover begins, Shinji and crew will be added as special Wib Wobs.

Yo-kai Watch Puni Puni is available for iOS and Android in Japan. The Evangelion collaboration event kicks off on December 16, 2021.
