Yo-kai Watch

Level-5 has announced this week it will be releasing Yo-kai Watch 2 on 10th July for the 3DS in Japan. A sequel to last year's popular monster-watching title Yo-kai Watch, Yo-kai Watch 2 will hit stores with two different versions — Yo-kai Watch 2: Ganso (Founder), and Yo-kai Watch 2: Honke (Head). Each version will feature an exclusive rare medal in the game.

Yo-kai Watch 2's story will travel back in time explore the origins of the mysterious Yo-kai Watch organisation, with new events for players to participate in like flagpole climbing and bicycle riding. If players have save data for the original Yo-kai Watch on their 3DS, they can become friends with special yōkai in the sequel.

Will we see the popular series here in the West? Earlier this year, Level-5 filed a U.S. trademark for Yo-kai Watch and asked Facebook fans whether they'd like to see a localisation. Nothing has been announced yet, but it seems Level-5 is strongly considering a Western release. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
