Youkai Watch Shows Off Its Town Exploration And Battles


Level 5 have released a brand new trailer for Youkai Watch, their upcoming 3DS RPG, slated for release this July. The trailer shows off exploration, searching for youkai, battles, and other activities. You can watch it below:



The various youkai in Youkai Watch all have their own moves in battle. Battles are controlled via the 3DS touch screen, where you rotate a dial to go through the different youkai in your party. Three youkai can be active in battle at any given time. There’s also an Aim command, that lets you aim at enemies using the stylus for a concentrated attack.


Youkai Watch is scheduled for release on July 11th in Japan.
