Yo-kai Watch World (Japanese: 妖怪ウォッチワールド Yōkai Wocchi Wārudo) is an augmented reality, location-based adventure game developed by Level-5 and GungHo Online Entertainment. It was announced and released on iOS and Android smartphones on June 27, 2018, in Japan.

Game Information

The gameplay is similar to that of Pokémon Go, where the player goes out and tries to find Yo-kai to battle and befriend. Players can encounter different events whilst roaming in the real world and can send out different Yo-kai for combat. The game is developed using Unity and works using Google Maps services.


The game was announced during a public Japanese live stream on June 27, 2018.


There have been many collaborations with the game including a Puzzle and Dragons one.

  • When a Level-5 representative asked about an international localization of the game at the American Gungho branch at E3 2019, they said they had no plans to release it.[1]
  • Many exclusive variants of existing Yo-kai exist within this game.
  • Even though that the logo of the game is based off the western one, the game is only used when the player is in Japan.
