Yo-Kai Watch Review

Yo-Kai Watch

To this day Kian is still Pokemon mad and it is a game that has enjoyed playing as a child and continues to enjoy in his teens.

No there is a new kid on the block – Yo-Kai Watch which is similar to Pokemon and just as addictive to play,

In Springdale there are mysterious forces behind everyday problems. From always feeling hungry to spending too much money or saying something mean accidentally, behind all these common problems there are very likely to be a mischievous Yo-kai to be found.

Yo-kai are charming, funny, outrageous characters that can be found everywhere, living in their own secret world from our own, and with a habit of causing a lot of weird problems for people – often with hilarious results.

To protect the town, players will need to befriend as many Yo-kai as they can; with a little luck and some good tactics, they can be befriended and relied on for help, but many have their own problems that need solving too. Yo-kai such as Jibanyan, an abandoned cat with an affinity for fighting trucks who just wants to impress his old owner, or Komasan, a mild-mannered Yo-kai who needs a hand finding his lost brother. As the new owner of the powerful Yo-kai Watch, a watch with a lens that allows the normally hidden Yo-kai to be seen, players must solve the mysteries of the Yo-kai, get to the root of these issues and protect Springdale.

In addition to the main story there are hundreds of additional quests littered throughout Springdale just waiting for players to find them. Exploring and finding these quests are all part of the fun: Springdale is a vast town with a number of shops, parks, a forest, and even more secret locations to be discovered. Completing these additional quests will help players level up their Yo-kai to an even stronger level, and sometimes find even more new Yo-kai to recruit! Existing Yo-kai can also be combined using Yo-Kai Fusion to create new unique and powerful members of your party – some of which cannot be found any other way.
It takes more than just a strong party of Yo-kai to win battles though. Players must also have a smart strategy, as battling the powerful Yo-kai bosses is sure to keep even the most proficient YO-KAI WATCH® players on their toes. All Yo-kai possess their own unique abilities, called Soultimate Moves, that when unleashed can swiftly turn the tide of battle. Players will need to carefully manage their party on the Nintendo 3DS touch screen to swap their Yo-kai in and out of battle, judge when to use their Soultimate Moves, and wisely use items to keep their Yo-kai in good condition. Friends can also pit their best Yo-kai teams against each other by battling via local wireless play.
Both Isaac and Kian are enjoying this game and it is incredibly addictive. Kian has said that is as good as Pokemon which means highly recommended in his terms!

  1. My three are too young yet but I used to love the pokemon games when I was a kid. There was always so much to do and would keep me and my brother entertained for hours! So if it is as good as that then it sounds perfect for kids!

    I think we’re too young for this at the mo in our house although I’m sure my cousin would love it. Great review x

  3. It does sound like a fun addictive game. I can’t relate yet but I’m sure my babies will be plugged in to a little game station in no time. A great review though, very detailed, I wonder whether you enjoy it as much as your son. Or maybe the peace it brings? Lol x
