Yo-Kai Watch 3, which debuted in Japan three years ago, is finally headed to Europe and North America this winter. The third game the wildly popular franchise is finally launching in the land that inspired this quirky entry in the series.
Moving away from its roots in Japanese folklore, Yo-Kai Watch 3 is set in the United States, and even features some American Yo-Kai. Players will explore new areas, meet new characters, and the game’s getting a revamped battle system to boot.
The game originally released in three parts - Sushi, Tempura, and Sukiyaki. It’s unknown if Nintendo will do the same for the western release just yet, but it could be a possibility considering past releases.
