Level-5 released Youkai Watch in the Summer in Japan and it looks like the region is set to receive another iteration of the series as CoroCoro magazine has stated a new title is in the works.

The 3DS title centres around around a young boy who comes into possession of a special wristwatch that enables him to see ghostly creatures in his environment. He must befriend some of these ghosts and use them in battles to stop the various townsfolk from being haunted.

It's unclear at this point whether this is a fully fledged sequel or an enhanced version of the original. Level-5 has devised beefed up versions of some of its titles in the past including Fantasy Life Link!, which released in July.

Youkai Watch has been selling consistently well in Japan. Last week's figures had it in tenth position in the multi-format chart and it had amassed 164,230 sales at that point.

Level-5 has not brought it to the West yet and we're still waiting on news of a Fantasy Life release. We have seen trademarks appear in Western regions for the latter, but there has been no such indication for Youkai Watch.
