Where I lose myself with cooking shows or a celebrity gossip magazine, at the end of a long day, my kids like to get on their assortment of electronics and play games to unwind. They’ve worked hard and deserve that break, too. They each have their own style of games that they enjoy, but one game that they’ve been having a lot of fun with recently is Yo-kai Watch for our Nintendo 2DS.
Available for the first time in the United States, Yo-kai Watch is already a video game craze in Japan. Have you ever forgotten your keys or found yourself running late? Maybe a Yo-kai is to blame! Players must find and befriend over 200 of these mischievous Yo-kai critters, each with their own unique personality, that inhabit the world and turn them into a team that battles other Yo-kai.
You can then be the Yo-kai ringleader as you wear your Yo-kai Watch.
This watch lets you find troublemaking Yo-Kai hidden around town and call upon their powers to make the impossible turn possible with each medal it holds!
My oldest son is a fan of other video games utilizing familiar Japanese animation, so he took right to this. He loved that there were so many different Yo-kai, and each did different things. It’s not a game that he’ll get bored with easily! There’s always another funny Yo-kai to find or another move to master.
He also loves the in-game Yo-kai cam! It’s really amusing to take pics and find Yo-kai as they pop up out of the game and in our world. Another feature he plans to take advantage of is being able to challenge his local friends to Yo-kai battles. So much better than homework, I’m sure he’d agree.
Yo-kai Watch is available now, online and wherever video games are sold for the portable Nintendo 2DS and 3DS family of systems, including the New Nintendo 3DSXL, at a suggested retail price of $39.99. Also, be sure to follow Nintendo on Facebook and Twitter for more fun game ideas!
So play and level up! Are you ready for Yo-kai Watch? Enter to win the game for yourself below!
