With the European launch of Yo-Kai Watch taking place today the families I work with have been discovering how good a fit the world of Yo-Kai is for them. I was expecting it to be pretty popular with the strong collecting and character aspects of the game, but I hadn’t realised how much substance there was knitting the experience together.

If you’ve not come across it before, Yo-Kai Watch is a series of role-playing games from the makers of Professor Layton and Fantasy Life Level-5. The central focus is the numerous Yo-Kai spirits that can be discovered with your Yo-Kai Watch in the game and then battled of befriended.

It’s been out in the US for a while now but only now lands in the UK along with the upcoming cartoon and toys. Unsurprisingly, Level-5’s fingerprints are all over it. Not only in the puzzle element and engrossing strategy, but also in the cartoon production and all-round sense of quality.
