VIZ Media Europe has announced that they will launch Yo-Kai Watch‘s first anime season in more than 100 territories this Spring.

That will coincide with LEVEL-5’s smash hit franchise arriving in Europe and Africa for the first time, having already scored success in Japan and the United States.

With Hasbro lending their support with toy lines, Nintendo publishing the Nintendo 3DS exclusive game, manga publishing and a licensing program, such joint forces will be hoping to continue to drive that success worldwide.

Such lofty expectation comes off the back of the Japanese market, where the Yo-Kai Watch games have collectively sold more than 10 million copies, the anime series remains top-rated among a young demographic, while manga, toys and other merchandise have generated over €2 billion.
