Moco Moco Friends has an American release date

A while back I downloaded the Japanese demo for the game Apprentice Witch and Moco Moco friends. Now there’s a release date for North America: November 17. Moco Moco Friends is a happy game, colorful, with beautiful graphics and adorable Plushkins to collect. Now the concept of collecting monsters isn’t exactly novel. We all know Pokémon and I’ve written a lot already about Yokai Watch, where you collect Yokai (a sort of ghosts straight out of Japanese folklore). Both wonderful game series.

Moco Moco doesn’t have any ugly demons, no dark secrets, but an overall nice feeling. The Plushkins look very good, it will be a pleasure to collect them. And when you fight them, it’s so adorable the way the cotton stuffing bursts out of them when they are hurt. After they are caught a purifying spell makes them into friends. You can read more of my thoughts about the demo here.
