Yo-kai Watch 1 for Nintendo Switch (Japanese: 妖怪ウォッチ 1 for Nintendo Switch Youkai Wotchi Wan fo Nintendo Suitchi) is a role-playing game developed by Level-5. It is an enhanced port of Yo-kai Watch with improved graphics and new controls.
Several graphics have been enhanced and retouched to take advantage of the Switch’s graphical capabilities.
The Yo-kai Cam is not available in this game, due to the Nintendo Switch lacking a camera function.
The map at the bottom-right corner can be resized just like Yo-kai Watch 4, that can be changed with the zR button.
Character dialogue boxes now have voices just like in Yo-kai Watch 3 and Yo-kai Watch Blasters.
An outline of the character is now present when they go under objects, such as the pipes in the Springdale Underground Waterway.
The Touch Screen controls for the Yo-kai Lens and some of the Yo-kai purification features during battle have been changed to the Left Stick.
Some of the purifying elements were changed, as the Nintendo Switch doesn’t have a Touch Screen.
