Yo-Kai Watch 2

Nintendo has put out a new trailer for the “Oni Evolution” update that was just made available for the original Yo-kai Watch 2 games. See it below.

Nintendo is publishing Yo-kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters in the west at the end of this month. Going along with that, Prima has prepared a new guide.

The Yo-kai Watch 2: The Definitive Yo-kai-pedia will have all sorts of information. It will cover over 350 Yo-kai, including their battle actions, abilities, resistances, and more. You can also find out “how to make your Yo-kai even stronger and create the ultimate team with all level requirements and fusion recipes included.” The guide packs in facts about the characters as well. Topping everything off is a full-color poster and a code to access the digital version of the guide.

Pre-orders for Yo-kai Watch 2: The Definitive Yo-kai-pedia are open on Amazon here. It’s due out on September 29.

Nintendo announced a short while ago that Yo-kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters is planned for September 29 in North America. Similarly, Europe just received the same date as well. We have the latest trailer below.

September is looking like a busy month for 3DS. Monster Hunter Stories, Metroid: Samus Returns, and Yo-kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters are arriving within just a few weeks of each other.

Previously, Nintendo had given Psychic Specters a vague “Fall 2017” launch window in North America. We now have a final date, as it’s now confirmed for September 29.

Yo-kai Watch 2 originally came out last year. Psychic Specters offers new features, including new Yo-kai to befriend, exclusive quests, and the ability to hop on the Hexpress to a new resort area. Those who purchased Yo-kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits or Fleshy Souls can transfer their save data to pick up where they left off.
