Nintendo has announced that Yo-Kai Watch 2 will be localized for North America later this year. On September 30th, the sequel will release in two different versions. Similar to Pokémon titles, each game will have exclusive Yo-Kai that can only be found in one version. Players will have the choice of playing either Yo-Kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits or Yo-Kai Watch 2: Fleshy Souls. The games will feature new areas outside of Springdale and over 100 new Yo-Kai to find.
In addition to the new games, even more Yo-Kai Watch media is on the way! A second season of the TV show, translated manga from VIZ Media, and even a lineup of toys and medals being release from Hasbro. We’re sure to see more Yo-Kai Watch in the future as Nintendo and Level-5 continue to push the franchise outside of Japan.
