The popular ghost-hunting RPG will be out in North America and Europe later this year.
Though developer Level-5 was talking about a 2015 Western release for its successful 3DS title, Nintendo of America has confirmed that Yo-kai Watch will indeed be heading West this year. The series has already sold 7 million copies in Japan alone since its release.
Nintendo of America executive VP of sales & marketing Scott Moffitt stated that, “Yo-Kai Watch is coming to the US, where a new audience will be able to experience this irresistible franchise for the first time. It doesn’t matter if you’re a kid, parent, fan or fan-in-the-making: everyone will be won over by this charming game.”
Though a firm release date hasn’t been provided, Yo-kai Watch will be out in the United States, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Korea and Latin America. One would assume that it’s only the first game which is being released for the West but stay tuned for more details on the same in the coming months.
