Nintendo is releasing a new 2DS hardware bundle to mark the launch of Yo-Kai Watch in North America.

The console - which comes with the game pre-installed - will launch on November 6th for $99.99, alongside the game's full retail release.

Yo-Kai Watch is the first in a series which has taken Japan by a storm. The original game has already sold 8 million units in its homeland, and a sequel - as well as spin-off, Yo-Kai Watch Busters - have performed similarly well.

Nintendo is clearly hoping that the franchise will achieve the same success in the west as Pokémon, hence the pairing of the game with the child-friendly 2DS system as opposed to the New 3DS.
