    What could it be?

    The Japan-based developer and publisher Level-5 is best known by Nintendo fans for charming series like Professor Layton, Inazuma Eleven and in more recent times Yo-Kai Watch. Originally established in 1998, the company is now 20-years old. In celebration of Level-5's 20th anniversary, Famitsu is teasing an interview with the...





  • Feature Best Nintendo 3DS RPGs

    A quest for the best

    As the 3DS's sixth year in the world draws to a close, we can already look back on its impressively varied library with wonder; along with plenty of standout platformers, life sims, rhythm games, and puzzlers, it's also carved out a particular niche by delivering an almost non-stop barrage of first class RPGs. Responsible for...



  • News Kirby: Planet Robobot and Yo-kai Watch Hang On in UK Top 40

    The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD has sales boost

    Somewhat predictably considering the information and hype black hole that is E3, last week was short of major releases at retail. As a result the UK top 40 was a battle of established games, with DOOM seizing top spot off the back of price promotions. In any case, the picture for Nintendo UK...

  • News Kirby: Planet Robobot Transforms Into Top 20 Title in UK Charts

    Yo-kai Watch clings on to top 40 spot

    We're big fans of Kirby: Planet Robobot, the 3DS sequel that ups the ante on its original and introduces clever ideas to a classic formula. Since its launch it appears to have had a reasonable sales start in the UK, too, securing chart placings similar to its predecessor - Kirby: Triple Deluxe. It its first...

  • News Yo-kai Watch Sold Less Than Half a Million Units in North America

    CEO still believes the franchise will "bloom like a flower" in the west

    The Yo-Kai Watch series was quite a phenomenon in Japan, with a multi-pronged media blitz spanning video games, cartoons, and toys; leading the series to even eclipse Pokémon in some respects. Naturally, Level-5 was keen to bring the franchise to the West in hopes of there...

  • News Yo-kai Watch Clings on in UK Charts as Fire Emblem Fates Tumbles Out of Top 40

    A cruel fate

    The latest UK chart results are out, once again reflecting some half-term sales in the country, and the outcome is disappointing from a Nintendo perspective. Only one Nintendo exclusive is in the top 40, with Yo-kai Watch climbing one place to 39th in the all-format results (38th in single-format). Considering its steady decline we're...





  • News Yo-kai Watch Begins Its European Quest on 29th April

    About time

    Though the majority of major Nintendo releases have aligned releases globally, or at least in the West, the recent glut of 3DS releases have been somewhat scattered between North America and Europe. One example is Yo-kai Watch, which was marketed as a major Holiday 2015 release Stateside but is only now dated for the EU. It's arriving on...


  • News Yo-kai Watch Anime Series Coming to the UK This Spring

    One of more than 100 countries

    It's official, Yo-kai Watch is set for world domination much like Pokémon before it. In our Yo-kai Watch review we liked developer Level 5's take on doing a Pokémon style game and felt that, in some ways, it eclipses the effort GameFreak has put into Pokémon over the years, both in production and creativity. Of...





  • News The Yo-Kai Watch Anime Starts In North America on 5th October

    Premiering on the Disney Big Grin channel

    Level-5 will try to take over the Western world, and give Pokémon a black eye, when it releases Yo-Kai Watch in North America in November. The battle of slightly confusing RPG franchises with never-ending collectible and money-making concepts will truly begin in earnest. Before the game arrives North...
