Yo-Kai Watch 3 is set to complete the trilogy on 3DS for fans of the West, and it looks like they will be getting the definitive version of the game. The official Twitter account revealed that this version of the game allows players to obtain every Yo-Kai on a single save file. When the game released in Japan, it had two versions: Sushi and Tempura. Another version released later called Sukiyaki that let you choose which version you wanted to play, along with bonus content.
For the West, we combined all three versions into one game. Think of it like a "Sukiyaki+" or Gold Edition. You'll be able to obtain every Yo-kai in one savefile. We still encourage trading though. 😀

While Yo-Kai Watch 2 kept the multiple version structure of the original Japanese releases, it looks like the third game in the series is going for a more simplified approach. With the 3DS near the end of its incredible software run this seems like a great decision and allows fans of the series outside of Japan to see this chapter of the series end in style. It will definitely help make the wait for the series’ next installment on the Switch a little easier. Yo-Kai Watch 3 is scheduled to release in North America on Feburary 9, 2019, and is out now in Europe. Check out the launch trailer below.
