Developer Level-5 has just shared the very first in-game screenshot of Yo-kai Watch 4, along with some brand new artwork, and the results are way closer to the anime TV series, more so when you compare it to the original entries for the Nintendo 3DS, as you can see below.
The game will release in Japan later this year, introducing new characters and environments based both on the Shadow Side new series and the upcoming film, which is expected to premiere together with the game. There's no release date for the West as of yet, but 2019 is a safe bet, as the third main entry for the Nintendo 3DS is still scheduled to release this year.
What do you think of the graphical approach? How does it compare to the upcoming Pokémon games?
