Nintendo will publish Yo-Kai Watch 3DS game in North America and Europe

yo-kaiwatch-posterNintendo has announced they will publish Yo-Kai Watch in North America and Europe. Massively popular in Japan, Yo-Kai Watch is a 3DS game developed by Level-5 that centers on a young boy’s adventures with Yo-Kai, mischievous spirits that are unseen by most of humanity.

Yo-Kai Watch centers on a boy who gets a special watch that lets him befriend and help mischievous Yo-Kai and later summon them to fight other Yo-Kai. Players can overcome challenges and help various characters solve everyday problems with the help of Yo-kai friends. These eccentric Yo-Kai resemble anything from inanimate objects to mythical creatures.

Yo-Kai: They are not ghosts, monsters, or creatures. Yo-Kai are, quite simply, Yo-Kai. They cannot be seen by the human eye, but they are everywhere. Whether born from the soul of a deceased human, or an everyday object discovering its higher purpose, their personalities are distinctly humanlike.

“With sales of more than 7 million units in Japan, Yo-Kai Watch is coming to the US, where a new audience will be able to experience this irresistible franchise for the first time,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “It doesn’t matter if you’re a kid, parent, fan, or fan-in-the-making: Everyone will be won over by this charming game.”

The 3DS launch of Yo-Kai Watch is currently without a release date, but it is expected to be released sometime in 2016. The anime adaptation will make its North American debut this Fall.
