Find, befriend and battle hundreds of Yo-kai

YO-KAI WATCH was a cultural phenomenon in Japan, selling millions of games and capturing the hearts of a nation. Now you can experience the international sensation for yourself with the YO-KAI WATCH demo, available for download now.

Hundreds of sometimes spooky, sometimes cute, and usually mischievous Yo-kai secretly inhabit our world. From flaming feline Yo-kai to three-headed bosses, they’re hiding everywhere! Discover these secret tricksters to battle and befriend them. Then turn them into a team on your Yo-kai Watch and take down troublemaking Yo-kai to help people in need.

With your Yo-kai Watch, you can see Yo-kai that are normally invisible hiding everywhere in your town, flying around trees, and hiding under vending machines. Many of them are causing trouble in the daily lives of residents of your town! Now you’ll need to assemble a team of six Yo-kai on your Yo-kai Watch and call upon them when you need their help. Every Yo-kai has a unique personality and abilities, so it will take strategy to form the right team and gain the upper hand against troublesome Yo-kai. Support your team in real-time battles by initiating Soultimate moves and purifying Yo-kai with quick touch-based movements.
