The game lets players explore the world using your Yo-kai Watch to discover more than 200 Yo-kai, then befriend them and turn them into a team to battle other Yo-kai. Each Yo-kai has its own unique skills and strengths, so you must use them to challenge trouble-making Yo-kai and help people in the game solve their daily problems.
“When we first started exploring concepts for the Yo-kai Watch universe, we immersed ourselves in learning about situations confronting kids in their everyday lives,” Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino said in a press release. “This world – a child’s complicated, scary, confusing, exiting and very funny world – is the foundation of our IP, and the Nintendo game really captures this essence, along with the colorful and often amusing Yo-kai behind it all!”
The Yo-kai Watch anime will launch on Disney XD and Disney XD-branded platforms this fall. And on November 3, VIZ Media’s Perfect Square imprint will launch the Yo-kai Watch manga. In January, Hasbro will introduce its Yo-kai Watch toyline.
