Yokai Watch - Summary

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. 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.


  • 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.

There's something real screwy about the tracking for this in the U.S. right now. It's having this miraculous surge that's not being captured by anyone but VGChartz. It went from having not been in the top 75 since its second week of release in the U.S. back in November 2015, to being on the charts here since around mid-June, including this week at #30 and nearly 5,000. Unlike something such as Super Mystery Dungeon, which obviously popped back up because of GO, we're being told this game surged some ridiculous thousands of percent apropos of absolutely nothing, and unlike SMD, its sudden wave of purchases wasn't captured by anyone (Amazon's charts, GameStop's, the eShop's) but VGChartz. I get Amazon is not the end all, be all, and the eShop is digital, but if a game has a 5,000% rise, it would surely show up there, and it hasn't, at all. According to VGChartz, YW has sold about as much in the U.S. between mid-June and August than it did between January 2016 and June 2016. I call B.S. Can't help but think they undertracked it and are inflating its numbers now to try and make up ground.

@Ryng_Tolu I really want this game to sell so much more, it deserves it. Can´t wait for YW2. I guess we´ll finally see the success of the first one when the second launched :)

@Boypita no lol. Those sales (USA sales) doesn't count 2DS bundle or digital.

While as i show, it's well undertracked in Europe too. It's just impossible total EU sales are under 25,000 when only Spain count for 6,000...
