Yo-kai Watch 2

Yo-kai Watch 2 will launch for 3DS in North America on September 30, Nintendo announced. It will be available in two versions, Yo-kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits and Yo-kai Watch 2: Fleshy Souls, and each feature Yo-kai that can only be found in their respective games.

The Level-5-developed title offers the same RPG gameplay and adventure as the first game, as well as many new areas to explore outside of Springdale, more than 100 new Yo-kai, a new and improved in-game Yo-kai watch, and the ability to travel back in time.

In addition to the new game, Hasbro announced it will add new items to its Yo-kai Watch toy line this fall, including Yo-kai Watch Model Zero, designed to look like the watch worn by Nate in Season 2 of the animated series. It includes “Yo-kai Motion Technology” that lets fans insert a “Yo-Motion Yo-kai Medal” into the watch and see a projected animation of that character. These medals will be released alongside the watch, as well as custom Yo-kai Watch accessories, large plush toys, and electronic figures. A trading card game is also planned.

Disney XD announced it will premiere the second season of the Yo-kai Watch anime this summer. Here’s an overview, via Nintendo:

This season, join Nate, Whisper and Jibanyan as they get the new Yo-kai Watch Model Zero. But just because he has a new watch, that doesn’t mean Nate’s life will get any easier. Season 2 has more Yo-kai, more miniseries, more episodes and, most importantly, more laughs! Tune in to see how a new cast of Yo-kai interrupts Nate’s normal life in unexpected and hilarious ways.

In Japan, Yo-kai Watch 3 is due out on July 16.
