It’s taken a while to get here but Yo-Kai Watch gets a European release date at last.
Level 5’s Yo-Kai Watch has been a huge hit in Japan since its release in 2013. The series – which is published by Nintendo – has shipped over 10 million units on the Nintendo 3DS to date with a third title due this summer.
Yo-Kai Watch was created by Akihiro Hino, the acclaimed Japanese games developer behind the likes of Dark Cloud and Professor Layton franchise. The game sees players use their powerful Yo-Kai Watch to locate, battle and tame the normally hidden Yo-Kai.
The eagerly anticipated RPG will finally make its European début on 29th April, 2016, some five months after its US release.
To make those tortuous final weeks fly by we recommend learning the Yo-Kai Watch anime theme song.

There’s no need to thank us.
Yo-Kai Watch will be released in Europe on Nintendo 3DS and 2DS on 29th April, 2016.
