Nintendo have confirmed that they will be bringing the eagerly anticipated Yo-Kai Watch to European 3DS consoles on April 29th 2016. You can check out the game in action in the trailer below:

“In Springdale there are mysterious forces behind everyday problems. From always feeling hungry to spending too much money or saying something mean accidentally, behind all these common problems there are very likely to be a mischievous Yo-kai to be found. Yo-kai are charming, funny, outrageous characters that can be found everywhere, living in their own secret world from our own, and with a habit of causing a lot of weird problems for people – often with hilarious results. To protect the town, players will need to befriend as many Yo-kai as they can; with a little luck and some good tactics, they can be befriended and relied on for help, but many have their own problems that need solving too. Yo-kai such as Jibanyan, an abandoned cat with an affinity for fighting trucks who just wants to impress his old owner, or Komasan, a mild-mannered Yo-kai who needs a hand finding his lost brother. As the new owner of the powerful Yo-kai Watch, a watch with a lens that allows the normally hidden Yo-kai to be seen, players must solve the mysteries of the Yo-kai, get to the root of these issues and protect Springdale.”

Yo-Kai Watch hit American 3DS consoles at the end of last year, but it’s great to see that it’s finally coming to European 3DS consoles too. The game reminds me a ton of Pokémon except with ghosts. I’m looking forward to giving it a try!
