Check out the new trailer!
The game’s starting place is “Y Academy”, a top-class academy that is giant. Think of the academy as school/city that has various areas containing everything a student could ever need, starting with the Commerce Area that houses many essential businesses. The Academy Area is, in simpler terms, the core of the school that features the main school building, cafeteria, tennis court, library, and gym. You know, school stuff. Y Academy is described as a “Dream school that has it all”.
The Residential Area also has the student dormitory, where players can get to see the lives of students daily. There are 400 activities that the students can participate in through clubs and such. This helps bring up individual characteristics for the students and your job is to help them discover their talents. Three factions run the school as well: the Headmaster, the head of Disciplinary Committee, and the president of the student council. The three govern what goes on during school and merge their efforts to make sure everything runs according to plan.
However, things become to change when strange appearances of Yo-kai start showing up. Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait until next time to find out more about that. Lastly, the video finishes with a look at four categories for the students:
Students have various characteristics but they’ll all need your help to enroll based on those characteristics.
Yo-kai Watch Jam: Yo-kai Academy Y will release digitally on the PS4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan during Summer of 2020. The game plans on adding multiplayer mode and more through post-launch updates.
