Youkai Watch Is Coming.


At long last Level-5 have decided to relieve their fans with news that 3DS exclusive Youkai Watch will be making its way West after all, next year.
“In regards to foreign markets, we have been taking a look at it in regards to Yokai Watch. We are in development planning to release it sometime next year.” Said Level-5 president and CEO Akihiro Hino adding.
“We think it has a big appeal as a very Japanese-ish fantasy story. We already have support from a foreign toy maker company saying that it will be a definite success.”
Youkai Watch itself has been compared many a time to Pokemon given that both series’ share a similar, catch monster, battle monster mechanic but those who have actually imported and played the game lean more toward it feeling like a Dragon Quest Monsters title with a hint of Ni No Kuni thrown in for good measure. Sound good, role on 2015.

  1. It took them so long, but it’s better late than never. Maybe Level-5 is waiting for the perfect opportunity to release it. Maybe when there is already a name recall? I can imagine that they will release the anime first before the game.

    1. I believe the delay, according to Level-5 anyway was due to them trying to find a company willing to produce and release a toy line alongside the game, now that they
      apparently have we’re getting the game and I’m sure anime at some point to. Good news indeed.
