Jason Clement posted a article in NintendoYo-Kai Watch seemed like a bit of a gamble for Nintendo when they decided to bring the Japanese-centric franchise to North America and Europe last year, but the move seems to have paid off for them as today it was announced that Yo-Kai Watch 2 would be released on 3DS this Fall. New to the sequel will be more than 100 new Yo-kai; a new, improved, in-game Yo-kai Watch (the titular device that the main protagonist uses), the ability to travel back in time, and more. The original Yo-kai Watch had the benefit of launching without a new, mainline Pokemon game competing for attention, but this year will be a bit different due to the upcoming release of Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. Therefore, Nintendo is releasing Yo-kai Watch 2 a bit earlier than when they released the first installment last year, with a release date of September 30. This will ultimately give the game a bit of breathing room both in retail stores and on the 3DS eShop before Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon land on November 18. Speaking of the latter, if you haven't already, be sure to check out Jonathan's thoughts on the latest information on Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. Did you ever play the first Yo-Kai Watch? Are you looking forward to this one?
Earlier this year, we first received word that Nintendo of America would be bringing the popular Japanese series Yo-Kai Watch on 3DS westward, and now the game officially has a release date: November 6. You might recall that that's actually the released date for another mega popular game: Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Will it make any difference regarding sales? I'm not so sure considering that they're two different corners of the market, but rest assured that a lot of money stands to be made on that day. We'll see if Yo-Kai Watch can make an impression on North American audiences when November rolls around. If it's successful, we may very well have another Pokemon on our hands. Do you have any interest in playing Yo-Kai Watch?
Jonathan Higgins posted a article in Individual ValuesWelcome to the twenty-sixth week of my PokÃ©mon feature here on Game Podunk! In case you missed the last one, check it out! Stay tuned for future entries coming every Friday morning. -------------------------------- All's Quiet...For Now! I think Yo-Kai Watch is the reason we didn“t see much PokÃ©mon presence at E3 this year, and why we probably won“t hear anything about new games (outside of PokÃ©mon Super Mystery Dungeon) until after its intended Holiday release. Given the recent news that Disney“s grabbing the Yo-Kai Watch anime and Hasbro“s got its toys... I“d say Nintendo and Level-5 are out to market this title big time; they don“t want any â€œmegatonâ€ PokÃ©mon announcements cannibalizing sales. After seeing Yo-Kai Watch take up some screen-time during the Digital Event, while PokÃ©mon Super Mystery Dungeon“s new trailer had to wait until after... well, I think PokÃ©mon news in the west is going to slow to a crawl. There are still some smaller things happening, though. Mere weeks after I mention both of my Dragonites being competitively obsolete because they don“t have their Hidden Ability, Multiscale — Nintendo have partnered with GameStop to...give away Multiscale Dragonites from now until July 12th. Haha. Hoopa will soon be available in Japan. If you“re lucky enough to obtain it from a friend prior to the U.S. release, you can head into any PokÃ©Mart to grab the necessary item to make Hoopa transform into Hoopa Unbound. It comes with Nasty Plot, Psychic and Astonish, as well as its signature move Hyperspace Hole. There“s no word on Hoopa“s release outside of Japan just yet, but I“ll keep you updated. And last but not least, I“ll update you on the new PokÃ©mon Super Mystery Dungeon bits from the new trailer and during E3 last week. First and foremost, we have confirmation that the Personality Testa series staple that skipped Gates to Infinity — makes its triumphant return in this game. The PokÃ©mon you become will be determined by how you answer the questions the game asks you. We also get our first glimpse of the game“s story. Something is turning Legendary PokÃ©mon into stone, and it threatens to overtake the entire planet. It sounds eerily similar to Explorers of Sky“s plot concerning the planet“s paralysis... but hey, I“ll take it! We even see from the game“s box art that Mega Evolutions are confirmed for the game. It“s going to be interesting to see what news comes from Japan; its release there is much closer than ours. Beyond those noteworthy bits, and the continued support of the free-to-start spin-off titles PokÃ©mon Shuffle and PokÃ©mon Rumble World, I think things will remain pretty quiet on the PokÃ©mon front until the holiday season, at least. But don“t worry! I still have a few things planned for Individual Values going forward. And, as always, I welcome your comments and feedback below.
It's official: Level-5's latest Japanese game phenomenon known as Yo-Kai Watch is being brought to the West by Nintendo. Similar in concept to Pokemon yet different, Yo-Kai Watch is centered on a boy who has a special watch that allows him to see and befriend invisible creatures called Yo-Kai, which can also be summoned to battle other Yo-Kai as well as help characters overcome everyday challenges and such. Interestingly enough, Nintendo maintains that Yo-Kai are not ghosts, creatures, or monsters; they are simply Yo-Kai, they are everywhere (despite not being able to be seen normally), and have distinctly human-like personalities. At the moment, it's unclear which game in the series is being brought over, but the title won't be coming until 2016. One thing is for sure, however—Nintendo and Level-5 are betting big on the game and hoping to repeat its huge success in North America and in other territories.
