    Yo-kai Watch Blasters: Red Cat Corps is a very entertaining and fun game that will delight fans of the saga, although it is also perfect for newcomers, as the title has a much simpler and direct approach than the main games. However, it is based on completing missions, so its formula may end up becoming something repetitive for some players.

    While its rinse and repeat Diablo-lite gameplay can get a little repetitive after extended play, there’s no denying how much fun it is to return to the world of Yo-kai Watch. Whether playing solo or via local or online co-op, Level-5 has taken all the hallmarks of the series and made it even more accessible to newcomers and seasoned monster hunters. A fine way to see off the series on 3DS, and proof the Yo-Kai series is strong enough to tweak its formula with a spin-off and still maintain that quintessential Japanese magic.

    Yo-Kai Watch Blasters is a fun action game with minimal RPG mechanics, the demonstration that Nintendo 3DS is still in shape.

    Although we appreciated that frantic action seen in Yo-Kai Watch Blasters, our love for the unique combat system seen in the first two episodes remains unchanged, and we hope to see it return as soon as possible in the franchise. This spin-off is a nice buy for the newcomers, though.

    A good diversion from the playful experience proposed by the main series.

    Based on a strong concept, Yokai Watch Blasters is a solid game with beautiful visuals and many things to do. But the action may be chaotic at times, and the whole thing is really repetitive.

    It’s a shame but Yo-Kai watch Blasters could have been a good game, but it’s let down by a lack of variety in what it offers in itself and against its predecessors.

    I was going to rate this game favorably. The story is basic, the combat is basic, but the fact that it's hard can be fun, until you get intoI was going to rate this game favorably. The story is basic, the combat is basic, but the fact that it's hard can be fun, until you get into the post game. At that point your AI allies become useless, you can't get enough Oni orbs to level anyone up without grinding for hours on your own, and trying to battle with people online is mess. If you are too low compared to others ranks, you get booted almost right away, and when you get in a room with people in a similar rank, they try to do missions they can't accomplish, and so you end up wasting time. The post-game content is easily the most inaccessible in the series so far, and the fact that there is such a huge climb to try and get to it, ruins the entire experience, which is already average anyways. There should have been a way to get enough Oni orbs through QR codes, passwords or anything, but pretty much all you get are coins. The grind ends up feeling like a mobile game kind of grind, without the option to speed it up. It's not fun, at all. Expand
