Yo-Kai Watch 2 has already been confirmed for a North American release, but now we have the first confirmation that the ghost-catching title will also be making its way to Europe.
The game's two versions - Bony Spirits and Fleshy Souls - have been rated by the Australian Classification Board, a sure sign that a European release is also on the cards (both regions share the "PAL" TV designation, even though this doesn't relate to handhelds).
Nintendo hasn't said anything official about the second Yo-Kai Watch title coming to Europe, but you can assume an announcement is on the cards.
We recently took a look at the merchandising juggernaut behind this popular franchise, which has recently passed the 10 million sold marker. Are you excited about playing the sequel?
It's nice to here it's coming to Europe! If there wasn't an RPG I actually trust to produce a decent game coming out on the 3ds soon I would potentially give it a shot. I'm not fond of the titles, though, does the whole game revolve around slightly disgusting humour?
Still worth playing the first game once the second hits? leading up to release I was quite hyped to play then for whatever reason I just never got around to it.
well thats veru surprising i didnt think it was gonna come to europe
It's about time, but it'll still be great to have
@DarkSynopsis Are you american or European? If you're American, wait the end of September, skip the first and play the second. If you're European, pick up the first. I've got a feeling that they're gearing up for a December release in Europe, which is 8 reasonably months after the first came out (against the 10 in US), and a month away from Pokémon Sun and Moon. The first one is a great game once you get into the groove (so once you realise it has almost nothing to do with pokémon and its charm lies in its humor), but the 2 fixes almost every problem of the first, plus is way bigger (and mind, YW is already a pretty big game). It's up to you. The first has no online functions, which is probably the main point against it, and it's terribly RGN based. But it's fun nonetheless, I had way more fun playing YW than I had playing both Pokémon X and Alpha Sapphire. It's an incredibly detailed, funny and charming RPG.
@kamikazilucas Why. In proportion to the population the game was and is more successful in countries that are more prone towards Japan culture like France, Italy and Spain, that it has been in the US. It was never not going to release here, the only question is when.
I got the first one the other day and its surprisingly good, I'm not that keen on the combat though, I wish it was turn based like Pokemon.
@hepgius which is why i was being sarcastic
Good news for PAL regions! Supposedly these second entries fixed a lot of what was wrong with the first game (which I still have yet to play.... )
@StevetheIcecube What do you mean?
@PlaytendoGuy I felt the same way, but then it grew on me. The turn based system has been done to death. At least this one keeps me moving throughout the entire battle.
@Nin10doh the game seems to have a big thing for 'gross humour'. You know, fart jokes, everything being dirty or greasy. The kind of humour aimed at 6-10 year old boys, or thereabouts.
@StevetheIcecube Ah ok, I not sure about the game. I haven't heard anything about it, but I know in the cartoon its there about every 5 or so episodes.
