Yo-kai Sangokushi is a cross-over between Yo-kai Watch and Koei's long-running Romance of the Three Kingdoms. The gamplay of the game turns to be a turn-based tactical role-playing game, that originated from the Romance of the Three Kingdoms series.
Choice of Hero
Since the game is a collaboration between Level-5 and Koei, the battle system of this game is not the same as the main Yo-kai Watch series. The battle system turns out to be a turn-based tactical role-playing game, that originated from the Romance of the Three Kingdoms series.
There are two different spaces, which is the blue and red space. The blue space is where the Yo-kai can move around, while the red space is where the enemy Yo-kai moves. One the Yo-kai is close to their enemies, they can attack them which the damage of their opponents will reduce their hit points. The Yo-kai can also be inspirited and can use their special moves in battle.
The Yo-kai can unleash a powerful attack to the opponent commander Yo-kai which will unleash a commander from the Romance of the Three Kingdoms series. When the commander of the player launches a regular attack to the opposing Commander Yo-kai, the two of them will fight each other, which the player has to hit the A-button repeatly until the gauge of their opponent is lowered to launch a commander attack.
When Yo-kai Sangokushi is connected to the following games: Yo-kai Watch Busters: Red Cat Squad, Yo-kai Watch Busters: White Dog Team, Yo-kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits, Yo-kai Watch 2: Fleshy Souls and Yo-kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters, it will unlock the Yo-kai: Nyanmajo Himiko, Nyankishi Susanoo, Jibanyan S Ryubi, Komasan S Son Saku and Komajiro S Son Ken.
