Youkai Watch’s success doesn’t stop at gaming and television. The series is making a splash in theaters, too.

Youkai Watch’s new movie earned $13.6 million (?1.6 billion) at the Japanese box office over a two day period this past weekend. The next closest film was Big Hero 6, which pulled in $5.4 million (?642 million). Despite being shown on only 408 screens, Youkai Watch doubled up on Disney’s movie (shown at 540 locations).
