This mobile port was the new game announcement teased by Level-5 in the Yo-kai watch 8th birthday stream. Yo-kai watch 1 lets you choose between Keita and Fumi-chan as the main character of the story. It will also support NFC to pair with existing toys in the franchise, such as the Yo-kai Sword and Y Medals. However, it does not include the Local versus and Mysterious Lens features.
Level-5 also has published guidelines for publishing videos and screenshots of the Yo-kai watch 1 mobile port. It generally allows players to record almost all parts of the game – including post-game content – with appropriate copyright notations. The only exception where recording is completely banned are the ending scenes after beating the final boss.
Yo-kai watch 1 will be available on July 10, 2021 for Android and iOS mobile devices in Japan. It is also available on the Nintendo 3DS and Switch. However, only the 3DS version of the game received worldwide releases in English.
