The Youkai Yashiki wiki last edited by Mento on 10/16/15 07:32AM View full history


Youkai Yashiki (or "Youkai Mansion") is a cartoonish horror action platformer game with an exploration element where the protagonist is a boy with a flashlight. This flashlight is the only means of fighting the supernatural horrors that inhabit the eponymous domicile, so the player must continually keep it stocked with fresh batteries, which act as the player character's health.

Originally produced for MSX home computers in 1986 by watch/electronics manufacturer Casio, Irem decided to publish an improved Famicom Disk System version in late 1987. Though the game was never released outside of Japan and never officially localized, the only Japanese language in the game is on the title screen. It is therefore entirely possible to play the game without knowing Japanese.
