Eight months ago, in March, the series had sold a total of seven million units.
Since then, we’ve seen the release of Yo-kai Watch Busters: Red Cat Team and White Dog Squad in Japan, which sold a total of 1.7 million units as of last week, and the original Yo-kai Watch in North America.
December 5 will see the release of Yo-kai Watch Dance: Just Dance Special Version for Wii U in Japan, and December 12 a special ‘Moon Rabbit Team’ update for Yo-kai Watch Busters. On December 19, the second anime movie, o-Kai Watch the Movie 2: King Enma and the 5 Stories, Nyan!, will debut in Japanese theaters. And in summer 2016, Japan will get Yo-kai Watch 3. Finally, a Yo-kai Watch and Romance of the Three Kingdoms collaboration is also planned.
