As big fans of the Yo-Kai watch game, we are mega excited to hear that two new game titles are due to launch in 2017. The new games are set to have an even greater variety of Yo-Kai, improved strategy elements and a new multiplayer mode where up to four players can team up to play.
Whilst my kids were introduced to Yo-Kai Watch (which is already a huge phenomenon in Japan) via the Nintendo game, the great thing about Yo-Kai Watch is that is appeals to non-gamers too.
We were invited to a Yo-Kai Watch family fun day to find out more.
The Yo-Kai Watch show ranks really highly on Cartoon Network and Yo-Kai Watch Season 2 is planned to be broadcast in the UK to coincide with the launch of the game.
Even if TV is not your thing, there is more including an app and toys...
The new toy range from Hasbro includes a new watch, new medal mystery bags, collectable figures and trading cards which are all coming in 2017.
The watch toy recognises the 200+ medals and plays one of the 8 tribe songs, character name and sometimes a character phrase. A medallium collection book will also be available where kids can collect and store their Yo-Kai Watch medals.
We got to have a sneak peak at some other merchandise and a monthly Yo-Kai mag will be launching next April too.
So it really is exciting times in the world of Yo-Kai Watch, I know we can't wait until 2017 to see the Yo-Kai phenomenon take off in a really big way.
