One of the biggest franchises to sweet Japan in recent years is Yo-Kai Watch and its finally being localized to North America. Exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS, Yo-Kai Wtach is set to release on November 6th 2015. Before its launch, Nintendo thought it would be a good idea to let you know what Yo-Kai are and introduce you to a few of them. You can check them out below:
So what are these Yo-kai, you ask?
Yo-kai cannot be seen by the human eye, but hide everywhere! It’s why you feel the urge to bust out in a dance in the middle of the classroom or why some mornings you simply can’t pry yourself out of bed. Hundreds of these spooky, sometimes cute and usually mischievous Yo-kai secretly inhabit our world.
Let us introduce you to three of the 200 amazing Yo-kai characters you’ll grow to love once you pick up the game and start to play:
Jibanyan is a slacker cat who saps your energy. When he’s not lying around eating chocolate bars, Jibanyan likes to practice his fighting moves on passing trucks – usually with painful results!
Walkappa makes you want to go for a swim – or jump in a lake! Most kappas stay in the water, but this one is a landlubber. He keeps a bottle of water to pour on his head to stay wet, though.
Ever revealed a secret without realizing it? It might be the work of Tattletell, a mischievous Yo-kai who takes the form of an elderly woman.
All these characters above are a part of the free demo currently available to download in the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS. Yo-Kai Watch is set to release on November 6th 2015 for 3DS.
