Posted 1 week ago by Brian in General Nintendo, News | 4 Comments
The first scan of Yo-kai Watch Busters 2 has emerged from this month’s issue of CoroCoro. A few tidbits are shared inside.
The full title for Yo-kai Watch Busters 2 is “Yo-kai Watch Busters 2: Treasure Legend Banbaraya”. It’s set on Karakuri Island, where the treasure of a pirate king rests. The island holds holds extravagent treasures and dangerous yo-kai.
Again, platforms for Yo-kai Watch Busters 2 have not been confirmed. But given the series’ history on 3DS, we’d be shocked if it didn’t end up on a Nintendo platform.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is scheduled to arrive this holiday, despite skepticism that the RPG will make it out in 2017. With the soundtrack wrapping up, a launch this year shouldn’t be out of the picture.

Nintendo has started distribution of another update for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Players with access to the game can download version 1.2.1.
