Thankfully, it’s doing so with the best version the franchise has offered yet in Yo-Kai Watch 3, throwing in every extra monster and mode into the one portable package. With a more nuanced battle system, larger sandboxes to explore, even more Yo-Kai to battle and add to your Medallium, this two-and-a-half-year-old game is a fresh as the day it first launched in Japan, and has given western 3DS owners one of console's best RPGs in the twilight of its years.
There's not much to Yo-kai Watch 3, but there’s still a lot of charm to be found. The towns of Springdale and BBQ are both bright, pleasant places to be; the people in it are even more so. Visiting the world of Yo-kai Watch for the third time is a fun time, even though you’ll end up staying a lot longer than perhaps necessary.
Yo-kai Watch 3 is one of the better Nintendo 3DS games that Level-5 has its name on. There are plenty of improved areas here, including side activities, the battle system, and Yo-kai designs. The story really shouldn't have worked, but by pulling a ''Phoenix Wright'', they somehow found a way. Still, I think that switching between two stories isn't the best approach and the downtime with quests is somewhat damaging.
