Level-5 is the latest in a growing list of third-party developers to express interest in the Nintendo Switch.

In a recent interview with Vandal.net, Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino was asked his opinion on the upcoming Switch, to which he replied:

“We plan to make games for Nintendo Switch, but I think it’s very important to find out the best way to get the most out of the console. For that reason, we won’t have any titles at launch, but we’ll work with it as soon as we figure out how to take advantage of it.”

The statement casts some doubt over whether Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom,  announced last year, will be released for the Switch. Though at the very least, we can be sure of a Level-5 game for the platform at some point.

As the developer of massively popular games like Yokai Watch and Professor Layton, Level-5 has been a regular presence on the Nintendo DS and 3DS, but have often outsourced their home console titles to PlayStation platforms, especially for their American releases. However, it seems like the Switch may change things up a bit, likely thanks in part to its portable nature.

The Differences Between Yokai Watch 2: Fleshy Souls and Bony Spirits https://www.gameskinny.com/pl5ft/the-differences-between-yokai-watch-2-fleshy-souls-and-bony-spirits https://www.gameskinny.com/pl5ft/the-differences-between-yokai-watch-2-fleshy-souls-and-bony-spirits Fri, 16 Sep 2016 08:05:55 -0400 Synzer

Yokai Watch 2 is coming out soon for the Nintendo 3DS, and this time there are 2 versions to choose from: Fleshy Souls and Bony Spirits. These can also be referred to as as Gold (Fleshy Souls) and Silver (Bony Spirits).

Like the Pokemon series, the only significant differences between the 2 versions is which Yokai you can get. There are also pre-order bonuses, so keep that in mind if you decide to get one or both of these games.

I'll list the versions exclusives, and gives links so you can see what they look like, to help you decide which version to get if you are on the fence.

Version Exclusives

Pre-order Bonus

Each version has their own pre-order exclusive as well. This is also different depending on whether you get a physical or digital copy.

The physical copies come with a medal you can scan in the game to get a new soultimate move for Jibanyan.

Below are the Yokai you get if you pre-order a digital copy of each.

Fleshy Souls
  • Sailornyan
Bony Spirits
  • Robonyan F

Yokai Exclusives

The Yokai you can get by playing through the game are mostly the same, but there are certain ones you can only get in each version. Click on the sub heading of each section for a link that shows what each Yokai looks like.

Fleshy Souls
  • Kyubi
  • Wydeawake
  • Toadal Dude
  • Kantetsu
  • Count Zapaway
  • Zappary
  • Hiraishin
  • SV Snaggerjag (Boss)
  • Komasan S

Bony Spirits

  • Firewig
  • Irewig
  • Slimamander (Boss)
  • Niku-kui Otoko

One thing to keep in mind if you are still having trouble deciding, is that Slimamander, a Bony Spirits exclusive, is a great Yokai to use in player battles. You can trade in this game, but certain Yokai like Slimamander are hard to get.

That's it for the differences between Yokai Watch 2 Fleshy Souls and Bony Spirits. Let me know if you have any questions!
