Illustration for article titled Enjoy the newest trailer of Yo-kai Watch Shadowside: The return of the Oni King anime film

The Horror Comedy movie will premier in Japan this December

The official website for the upcoming movie based on Level- 5´s property, Yo-kai Watch, has uploaded a new trailer which you can see bellow:

The movie is a sequel of the games and anime of Yokai Watch, where we will see the story of Natsume, Keita/Nathan´s daughter.


Anime News Network describes the story as follows:

“In the Yo-kai Watch Shadowside: Oni-ō no Fukkatsu film’s story, there used to be a boy who could control yo-kai with a mysterious watch. However, he became unable to see yo-kai when he became an adult. With the boy’s duties finished, the watch was buried away in space-time. Then 30 years later, quiet everyday life comes to an end as a fateful day begins with a comet drawing near. The terrible yo-kai virus Onimaro infects people’s malevolent intentions and spreads infinitely. The one chosen by the yo-kai watch is the one who can save humanity from its crisis. The bond between humans and yo-kai may be recovered with the attainment of a new yo-kai watch.

The key to the story will be three new human characters. Natsume is a 13-year-old girl who nearly drowned in a river when she was very young. The girl who likes to take care of others remembers “something” saving her from drowning. Tōma is a 13-year-old boy whose parents are busy with work, so he is always alone. Akinori is the oldest son in a family that has used yo-kai in fortune-telling for generations.”


The series creator, Akihiro Ino, is supervising the project and has labeled it as a new form of Comedy Horror movie that both young and old can enjoy.
