Finally, we have a release-date for the first English game of Yokai Watch in the US! And it will be here sooner then I thought, at November 6th, while I had expected a Holiday season release!
They are really gearing up a real media circus: Disney X D will start showing the cartoon, starting this Fall; at the beginning of November the series’ manga will be published by VIZ Media’s Perfect Square imprint. On top of that, the Hasbro range of toys and related non-video games will find its way to stores in January 2016. Better try to beef up your wallet early, as there will be plenty of collectible medals.
Pity the merchandise won’t be there before Christmas, otherwise I would know of a good tip for Christmas stockings!
I might give this a go when it comes to Europe, as I sometimes dabble in Pokemon like games.
Please do, I’ve played it on Japanese and it’s quite good! I’ll be happy to play it in English, understanding the story better!
I’m so excited for this! I have been staying away from knowing too much about the game since I want to be surprised and discover it for myself, but I’ve been interested in it since last year when I heard it was as big as Pokemon in Japan. I really hope it captures the wonder I experienced in my childhood when I played Pokemon and Digimon for the first time. I’m also very excited about the Moco Moco Friends game that looks like an even cuter pokemon, but I’ll most likely have to import an American copy of that game and use the anti region patch :
I’ve played the demo for the Moco-moco game, and I’m still on the fence about that one. When in doubt, definitely go for Yokai!
Oh, I am definitely not in doubt, I’m gonna get both no matter what. It’s just that dealing with region locking is so annoying, especially with the 3DS.
Also, there’s a demo for Moco Moco? Is it in Japanese?
Yes, at least I downloaded a demo in May or something in Japanese. Not sure if it’s still in the eShop though.
