Yo-Kai Watch is really taking off in Japan. Level-5, the same studio behind the likes of Ni no Kuni and Professor Layton, started up this shonen manga, game and anime line from scratch.
It’s been a resounding success.
It’s about a young boy who turns into a ghost hunter thanks to the Yo-Kai Watch he finds in the woods.
Thanks to its success at home, it looks like Level-5 has an international release in the cards for the Nintendo 3DS title. Their El Segundo, California based office tweeted this question out to fans:
Between the game and the anime, Yo-kai Watch is a success in Japan! Would you like to see Yo-kai Watch in the US/EU? http://t.co/sFgMsAMLXf

Given Level-5’s penchant for delivering exceptional and unique games, we’d love to see Yo-Kai Watch release outside of Japan’s borders. We’re currently blowing through Inazuma Eleven, a title we’ll be reviewing in the coming days, and we’re big fans of this developer’s catalogue.
Plus, Yo-Kai Watch looks like the kind of ridiculous we’d adore.
If this one makes it abroad, will you be interested in picking it up?
