Level-5 will be the second major and free update too Yo-kai Watch Jam: Yo-kai Academy Y – Waiwai Gakuen Seikatsu on November 28, 2020 in Japan. The DLC with the title “Cosmic Final Battle Rendevous” will again offer new dungeons and a new story. In addition, there are again new Yo-kai Heroes and new multiplayer missions as well as new skills, weapons and a new level limit. A new trailer introduces you to the content. There is also a short TV commercial.
When and whether the game will appear in the West is still unclear. The release policy in DLC chunks certainly doesn’t make localization easier, which Level 5 is already struggling with. To make matters worse, there are the last reports that Level-5 International America has practically ceased operations. A physical release of Yo-kai Watch Jam for PS4 and Switch in Japan will follow on December 17th.
Your life at the huge Y Academy
The focus of the game is on Jinpei, with whom you can experience an “exciting adventure at school”. The player ended up at the “Y Academy”, a large elite school. You enjoy school life and uncover the secrets that await you and your crazy friends in everyday school life. But first you have to become a member of the school’s “YSP Club”.
Players can move freely around the school grounds and interact with the many students. You will meet numerous familiar faces from the anime. But of course you get involved in fights too! And of course the school is not the only venue either.
