Find, Befriend and Battle Hundreds of Yo-kai
After selling millions and being a cultural phenomenon in Japan, YO-KAI WATCH is coming to the United States for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.

Give a look at 25 straight minutes of gameplay for Yo-Kai Watch from Nintendo’s E3 2015 TreeHouse Live Day 1 Coverage!

The YO-KAI WATCH game is about hundreds of sometimes cute, sometimes spooky, and usually mischievous Yo-kai that inhabit our world. Yo-kai are not ghosts, monsters or creatures.

Yo-kai are, quite simply, Yo-kai.

They cannot be seen by the human eye, but they are everywhere. Whether born from the soul of a deceased human, or an everyday object discovering its higher purpose, their personalities are distinctly humanlike.

As you explore the world, use your Yo-kai Watch to find them, befriend them, and turn them into a team to battle other Yo-kai.

Befriending new Yo-kai may not be so easy, though – in many cases, you will need to battle with them and impress them during your battle.

Each Yo-kai has its own unique skills and strengths and you’ll use them to challenge the evil Yo-kai and help people in need of solving daily problems – like an argument with a friend or forgetting something important – which may be caused by mischievous Yo-kai hidden everywhere.

Key Yo-Kai Watch Features:

* With the power of the Yo-kai watch, find and befriend more than 200 hidden Yo-kai, found everywhere in the world, and call upon their powers when you need their help.

* Assemble a team of six Yo-kai in your watch to defeat evil and help people.

* Each Yo-kai has its own unique skills and strengths, so use strategy to assemble your team to address different problems and fight different evil Yo-kai.

* Make your Yo-kai Watch more powerful and upgrade your Yo-kai as you play through the story.
