I've rated all three main Yo-Kai Watch games the same because they're all on the level. All three (released in the west so far) are somewhat held back by a simplistic combat system but boast an infinite amount of charm. There are very few games that can make me smile the entire way through and that counts for a lot.

Yo-Kai Watch 3 remains a convincing expression of a hybrid between JRPG, strategic and adventure: a childish vision, frizzed and colored by a rather obscure aspect of Japanese folklore, reinvented with the visionary inspiration of the artists of Level-5.

With Yo-Kai Watch 4 in development for Nintendo Switch, the series is now bidding farewell to the platform it first called home. 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.

The pursuit of Nathan's adventures in the USA could have been a simple pretext to explore this new world haunted by undiscovered Yo-kai, through a humorous, if not satiric tone about cultural specificities. But Level-5 generously went further by improving the tactical side of the combat system, more dynamic as a whole, while expanding the activities considerably, and above all, by telling a parallel story from an investigative point of view, so these two destinies make an even more moving fable once united. Beyond its usual youthful collection spirit, Yo-kai Watch 3 thus encourages to widen contacts and befriend other people, an astoundingly vivacious, yet admirable humanistic mission for a series inspired by traditional japanese ghosts.

For all of its problems in the first few hours, Yo-Kai Watch 3 turns itself around wonderfully for an experience most any player can enjoy. Its a great entry for fans new and old, and an indicator of the greater heights the series is headed toward.
