Level 5 is already considering how they will release Yokai Watch 2 in the west. Amiibo support is also possible in the future.

Hino really wants to fund that PS4 game. Yokai Watch Busters: Moon Rabbit Team, the third version of Busters, is releasing in December. Current owners of Busters will receive some sort of update.
Make way for the king. The demo is up on the American eshop. My first impressions:
All in all, I really liked it, and I'm excited for the full game. I can see this evoking the Pokemon feeling of being engrossed in a new world with so many monsters to battle and collect while putting its own spin on the genre. Hopefully this resonates with as many people as possible. It sure did for me.
Sounds good. I'm looking forward to the full game, but I'll try to acquire the demo if my net lets me.
I might have to pass this up after all. I tried the demo and the battle system is too cluttered and confusing more my liking.
Tried the demo. Pretty fun, honestly. A bit more engaging than some games, so I'd have to play it when I'm not being called away quickly. I barely beat the samurai-like character. Didn't beat the main boss of the demo, though.
I saw a video of the game in action. I think I might give it a shot.
No demo here yet, at least last I checked.
I'm curious of it.
And my GF is excited for it...
I played the demo. Combat is interesting, to say the least. I think I've gotten used to it, but I feel like it might get a little overwhelming at times in the full game. I wonder if there's a "All Defense" option or something for when want your Yokai to defend against something specific (like an enemy's Soultimate), instead of just hoping that they do it themselves.
My main interest in this besides finding all the Yokai was that the game was heavily reminding me of Ni No Kuni, another game by Level 5 that I absolutely adore, and includes catching monsters as well. In fact some of Yokai designs (like the ghostly ninja and the samurai bug Yokai) reminded me of Ni No Kuni's familiars. So far, I'm pretty satisfied and will probably get the full game soon after it's released.
Also, I saw a commercial for the game, which was kind of silly, but reminded me of those old Pokemon ads where real people were interacting with the 2D mons.
Speaking of commercials, I know we have a thread for LBX, but it's weird to me that Nicktoons keeps promoting the anime while the game never gets advertised (especially since it kind of feels like the show only came back because the game is out). At least Yokai Watch appears to be averting that.
I've seen this commercial on TV like 30 times already this week.
Quick question for ya. What Are THOSE!

Dem animu faces on actual people...
KILL IT WITH FIRE!
No but really, those faces looked terrible.
The concept of the ad isn't so terrible though.
I think it's sold out on Amazon! In japan it has 95% of the market share, meaning 95% of the target audience has the game.
I tried out the demo.
The battle system took a lot of getting used to. (Probably since I'm more used to the Pokemon battle system.) I think I have an understanding of what's going on by now, though. The Yokai critters themselves are pretty cute/cool, too. (Though some are just plumb silly, like Tiny Granny Tattle-Tale, though not in the bad way.)
While I didn't absolutely love it, I think it's pretty great.
Comes out tomorrow in NA. I'm stoked. Finally, Shin Megami Tensei will be dethroned.
Why the spoiler?
I felt like making a dumb joke.
Because everyone was expecting Pokémon under it.
Nah, with a spoiler tag that long, there was no way Pokemon was going to be under it.
In hindsight I should've just abbreviated it to SMT and spaced it out long enough. But not everyone would recognize what that stands for, so eh.
Well, the game's out! How is it? :)
I've got it. First hour impressions.
It's good. Still not completely sold on the battle system, but everything else is solid and charming.
Apparently the game's intro uses an alternate anime theme that people hated, so it was changed to a localization of the Japanese anime theme for the show. But not for the game. XD
There are a lot of sidequests. Many of them of the get something or find someone variety. I'd advise not doing too many of them in order to not be too overleveled, but I don't feel like figuring out how to optimize my team, and bosses are pretty difficult, so right now I just do however many I feel like before moving on with the main story.
Looking at some game play and I must note the system actually does have quite a bit of depth. Now here is a question for people that own it. Is there a vs mode? Can you take on other players. Because this system seems like it would be very interesting for two teams to take each on with.
