Yo-Kai Watch Joining the Rhythm Genre in New Trailer

Yo-Kai Watch is quite the franchise and it appears that mobile will be getting a taste of the ghost battler sometime soon though it may not be in the fashion fans would have wanted. The former Nintendo 3DS exclusive title will be adopting rhythm gameplay and a trailer shows off what that will look like.

Similar to the role-playing games players will be swiping across the screen in time with a song while colorful Yo-Kai rock out in the background. There appears to be special moves when it’s really time to bust a move and different band combinations.

The Yo-Kai Watch rhythm game will come out for iOS and Android in Japan sometime in 2017.
