This is probably just them trying to get some additional sales.
How is this possible?
Pretty sure it's this (and everything else right now).
Astonishing mismanagement. Nobody asked for a Ni no Kuni movie, but they had one made anyway. It bombed.
I remember how the watch toy was too hard to get back in 2014-2015, where in some places the only way to buy it was by lottery. And I will never forget how Jibanyan replaced Pikachu in some visuals like on Korokoro.
Yo-Kai Watch 4 hasn't even released in the west yet, and those localizations are usually done by Nintendo, so they'd have to have another publisher pick the title up if they want it on PS4 for overseas territory.
If you were like me and hated the combat of 1 (and the little bit of 2 I played), then this is significantly better, and way closer to the original Ni No Kuni.
