Yo-kai Watch launch event taking place at Nintendo World Store


Nintendo of America has announced that Rockefeller Plaza’s Nintendo World store will host the official launch event for Nintendo 3DS exclusive Yo-kai Watch.

It has already proved a cultural phenomenon for LEVEL-5 in Japan, and there is lofty expectation that it will strike the same chord in North America. While the game launches on Friday 6th November, the event will take place a day later on Saturday 7th November between 11am – 2pm.

Attendees can look forward to playing Yo-kai Watch, taking a look at Hasbro’s upcoming toy range, learning the Yo-kai Dance, and having chance to meet the game’s feline star Jibanyan. Activities will let you participate in a scavenger hunt, memory challenges and a massive game of “telephone.”

The first 75 fans in line will also have chance to take photos and get autographs from LEVEL-5 president and Yo-kai Watch creator Akihiro Hino.

Yo-kai Watch launches exclusively for Nintendo 3DS in North America on November 6th, and launches in Europe in early 2016.
