Keita, Fumi-chan, Natsume, Touma, Akinori, and Shin can fight alongside the yo-kai. Each character seems to have their own special abilities…
Next, a new Yo-kai befriending system called “Soul Matching” was introduced. When certain conditions are met, a Yo-kai called Konsaru will introduce players to new Yo-kai to befriend.
