Yo-Kai Watch is the big thing in Japan right now, with games, anime, candy, films, and plushies featuring these characters selling like hotcakes. After a couple years of waiting the Western world now finally has a chance to see what all the fuss is all about with the first 3DS game. After playing these last couple of weeks I can see why gamers in Japan were quick to fall in love with the game. The battles are fun and fast, giving you enough time to build a proper strategy while your Yo-Kai duke it out. Most surprising of all is its humor, which shows why Yo-Kai Watch is all about having fun with these spirits while not taking anything too seriously.

It's Perfect For...

If you have already collected all 700+ Pokémon and you still are in the urge to catch some more monsters.
