Can you remember this?
Yokai Watch 2 (妖怪ウォッチ２), the sequel to the exceedingly popular Yokai Watch, has been selling like gangbusters in Japan. And for good reason. Not only is the TV anime going strong and related toys disappearing off of store shelves faster than they can stock them, but the game itself is a whole lot of fun.
Yokai Watch, Level 5′s popular spirit collecting game, is still going strong, with the game remaining in Japan’s video game sales top 10 list for nearly a year. There’s no catching lightning in a bottle like with Pokémon, but according to developer Level 5, if you really try, you can get pretty close.
“Yokai Watch? WTF is that?” was my first response when I heard about the 3DS game that had Brian ransacking toy stores. Yokai Watch is pretty much a Pokemon style game from Level-5 of Professor Layton fame, where the objective is to collect cute little fairy-like monsters — called Yokai — to battle with.
With a sequel for smash Yokai Watch coming out, Nintendo is releasing a special Nintendo 3DS, emblazoned with Yokai Watch character Jibanyan.
