Nintendo has announced that Yo-kai Watch Blasters: Red Cat Corps and Yo-kai Watch Blasters: White Dog Squad are available now for Nintendo 3DS in stores and in the Nintendo eShop at a suggested retail price of $39.99 each.
In these new games in the series, you can actually play as the Yo-kai themselves for the first time. Yo-Kai Watch Blasters offers an exciting adventure you can embark on with up to three other people, so grab a friend, family member or even a friendly Yo-kai.
Yo-Kai Watch Blasters is launching with two versions: Yo-kai Watch Blasters: Red Cat Corps and Yo-kai Watch Blasters: White Dog Squad. 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.
