It was just a short while ago that we found out about plans for an Ace Attorney anime in Japan. As it turns out, that’s not the only Capcom IP with a show on the way.

During a stage show at the Tokyo Game Show, it was announced that Monster Hunter Stories will be receiving an anime. The program will be shown on Fuji TV starting next year.


An anime based on Capcom’s Ace Attorney series was just announced at the Tokyo Game Show. Along with the news, it was confirmed that the show will kick off in Japan in April 2016. More details will be provided in the months ahead.


An English trailer has been uploaded for the Yo-Kai Watch anime. Watch it below.

Yo-Kai Watch’s manga is coming stateside in September, VIZ Media announced today. Anime and toys relating to the series are also expected “around the same time”.

VIZ Media intends to publish the Yo-Kai Watch manga under its kids-friendly Perfect Square imprint. Fans can look forward to new volumes every other month.


VIZ Media will be distributing the Yo-Kai Watch anime in Europe, the company announced today. Specific details were not shared, but we’ll be hearing more “soon”.

VIZ Media wrote on Twitter:

Of course, the big piece of the Yo-Kai Watch puzzle we’re missing is a localization announcement for the games. Hopefully that will happen soon!


FUNimation announced today that it has acquired the rights for Koei Tecmo’s Samurai Warriors anime. Fans can watch the first episode on January 11, and the show will join FUNimation’s Winter 2015 Simulcast season.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Based on the hit video game, this dramatic re-imagining of one of Japan’s most revered historical periods drops audiences into the middle of an epic battle royal. Great warriors and dashing rogues from cherished Japanese tales come to life in this rousing series. Follow along as your favorite hacking, slashing characters from the video game meet once more on the field of battle. Every deadly move you perfected in the game is recreated in the action-packed anime experience that is Samurai Warriors!


Youkai Watch

The Youkai Watch anime is heading overseas, Level-5 president Akihiro Hino confirmed to Wedge Infinity. Some character names will be changed, but popular names like Whisper and Jibanyan will be kept in tact. The anime will air in the United States, Europe, and other regions.

Also while speaking with Wedge Infinity, Hino teased a new franchise coming next year that will be even bigger than Youkai Watch:

“It takes a lot of time to craft new installments of Yokai Watch, but on some weeks, we’re actually spending more time on our ‘new title.’ Around this time next year, I think we’ll have something out that’s different not just from Yokai Watch, but anything else we’ve ever done before. 2015 is going to be yet another big year of change for us. 2015 will be a year where we usher in a hit bigger than Yokai Watch.”

With Level-5’s unannounced franchise, Hino wants it to resemble the things he enjoyed as a kid, but more modernized. It will consist of games, anime, and manga.

Last but not least, Hino mentioned that Level-5 will not be moved to Tokyo since he wants to foster its current location of Fukuoka to be the ‘Hollywood’ of games.
