Nintendo and Level-5 have announced that Yo-Kai Watch Blasters: Red Cat Corps and Yo-Kai Watch Blasters: White Dog Squad will launch for the Nintendo 3DS in North America and Europe on September 7.

Yo-Kai Watch Blasters -- known as Yokai Watch Busters in Japan-- originally released in Japan on July 11, 2015. Blasters is an action RPG and an expanded version of the Oni Blasters game introduced in Yo-Kai Watch 2, where up to four players play as Yo-Kai and team up to defeat enemy Yo-Kai and bosses and complete missions. Completing missions will reward players with helpful items to use.

Each version of Yo-Kai Watch Blasters will have over 400 different Yo-Kai, missions, and bosses, and players will be able to trade between them. Special Yo-Kai Komajiro S, Jibanyan S, and Komasan S can also be received from linking the save data from Yo-Kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters, Yo-Kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits, and Yo-Kai Watch 2: Fleshy Souls respectively.

Yo-Kai Watch 2 Releases in US this September! https://www.gameskinny.com/oxe6q/yo-kai-watch-2-releases-in-us-this-september https://www.gameskinny.com/oxe6q/yo-kai-watch-2-releases-in-us-this-september Mon, 16 May 2016 08:15:01 -0400 Donald Strohman

Yo-Kai Watch 2 will be officially released to US markets on September 30th, 2016.

The original Yo-Kai Watch was considered a commercial and critical success and became one of the Nintendo 3DS' best selling titles--spawning a massive toy line and a companion anime series. So, it was only a matter of time before a sequel was announced. Yet, said game has technically been out for almost two years now, but the only way to have gotten a copy is if you purchased it from a Japanese seller. That will all be changed this fall, though, as the long awaited sequel is finally reaching Western audiences on September 30th.

Developed by entertainment company Level 5, well-regarded for their Professor Layton and Ni No Kuni series of games, the original Yo-Kai Watch was seen as a sort of spiritual successor to the Pokemon series. However, instead of going out and training animals to do battle against your enemies, this game had players capturing ghosts to fight other, more ill-spirited (hehe puns) ghosts. 

Yo Kai Watch 2 will continue to center around protagonist Keita Amano (or Fumika "Fumi-chan" Kodama if the player chooses so). This time, their memories have been erased and the trusty "Yo Kai Watch", which enables them to capture and summon ghostly companions, has been stolen. However, with the help of Yo Kai Whisper (from the original game,) Keita will be able to resume his adventures and continue efforts to thwart the evil Yo-Kai spirits once more.

If this comes as exciting news to you, be sure to let us know just how excited you are for the new game! On a final note, Yo-Kai Watch 3 has already been announced for release in the Japanese market this year, so be sure to pay close attention as to when that gets released to western markets as well.
