Any Yo-Kai Watch fans? It could be coming to a home console in the future!

Yo-Kai Watch is the latest title to release in North America from Level-5. It has had extraordinary success in Japan and the company is keen to replicate that in Europe come Spring 2016. CEO Akihiro Hino, spoke to IGN recently and stated that if Level-5 had a title that is a natural fit on the Wii U  “[he] would definitely want to proactively consider it.”

“It wouldn’t be impossible”

This is great news for fans of Level-5’s games. The company is responsible for 3DS titles such as the Professor Layton series and Fantasy Life. The possibility of a home console game, whether it be an existing franchise or something new, is very exciting given their previous work.

Hino went on to say, “If kids are willing to buy both of them, I couldn’t be happier,” when asked about the comparisons between Yo-Kai Watch and Pokemon. It seems the two can live together in peace.

When questioned about the future of Level-5 games on next gen platforms Hino said if the console can, “bring Level-5 games to as many kids as possible, it wouldn’t be impossible.”

Hi guys, The names Toby and I'm from the UK, I'm 26 years old and I've had a huge passion for the gaming world pretty much since birth. My first gaming console was the NES and I've got my parents to thank for that one, since then I have been gaming non stop, mainly on Nintendo consoles and handhelds but I've recently branched out into Sony's world and I'm playing a lot of Steam games. My favourite genre's are probably JRPG's, Platform, Action/Adventure and I love games with a good story, things like The Last Of Us, Ni No Kuni, the Professor Layton series. I'm a massive Zelda nut, always loved the franchise, the characters and the different art styles, not to mention the music. Apart from gaming I enjoy going to the gym, reading and general socialising. Quite a big film buff as well and I love my music and the cinema! That's me in a nutshell anyways, look forward to chatting games with you all! :)
