Level-5 published a new commercial for Yo-kai Watch Busters 2, launching this December in Japan. View the advert below.

With roughly two weeks to go until release, Yo-kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters can now be pre-loaded on the North American 3DS eShop. 21,039 blocks of free space are required for the download. That’s just over 2.5GB.

Pre-loading lets you get ready for launch by purchasing in advance and downloading most game data. Then when Nintendo officially puts the game on the eShop, you’ll only need a small update to begin playing.
