YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS is launching with two versions: and . In both versions of the game, you can team up with other players who also have the game to take down and befriend Yo-kai, battle Big Bosses and tackle missions.

Some missions, bosses and Yo-kai are exclusive to each version. So by playing both, or by trading with friends, you can collect all the Yo-kai in both games. In YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS, you can befriend more than 400 new and returning Yo-kai, including boss Yo-kai, new Yo-kai like Usapyon and Blizzie, and even all the friendly Yo-kai from the previously launched YO-KAI WATCH 2 games. That’s a lot of Yo-kai!

Battles in YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS take place in real time, as opposed to the turn-based battles of previous YO-KAI WATCH games. With four characters, you can strategize with different battle roles, like the offense-based Attacker, helpful Healer, tricky Ranger or defensive Tank.

YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS: Red Cat Corps and YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS: White Dog Squad are now available at a suggested retail price of $39.99 each.
