Yo-kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits And Fleshy Souls Headed To North America

Nintendo of America has announced plans to release Yo-kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits and Yo-kai Watch 2: Fleshy Souls across North America.

The sequel, developed by LEVEL-5, promises players new areas to explore outside of Springdale, more than 100 new Yo-kai, a new-and-improved in-game Yo-kai Watch, and the chance to travel back in time.

Yo-kai Watch 2 will release in two versions – Yo-kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits and Yo-kai Watch 2: Fleshy Souls – that each have rare Yo-kai exclusive to their respective games.

Hasbro will continue to add new items to their Yo-kai Watch line later in the year, such as the Yo-kai Watch Moderl Zero, a new series of collectible Yo-Motion Yo-Kai Medals, large plush toys, electronic figures, and the Yo-kai Watch Trading Card Game.

Disney XD has also acquired a second season of the Yo-kai Watch animated TV show, which will start this summer. This see Nate, Whisper and Jibanyan get the new Yo-kai Watch Model Zero, but that doesn’t mean that Nate’s life will get any easier.

Those that need to catch up can stream the show on Netflix, or buy Yo-kai Watch – Season 1 on DVD in late 2016.

“After being such a massive sensation in Japan, it’s great to see the U.S. start to embrace the mischievous and lovable Yo-kai,” comments Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of sales and marketing. “We’re excited to continue bringing fun Yo-kai experiences stateside this year.”
