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 is 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!

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, you must solve the mysteries of the Yo-kai. To protect the town, you’ll need to assemble a team of six Yo-kai on your Yo-kai Wheel and call upon them when you need their help.

YO-KAI WATCH is even more fun with friends! Test your Yo-kai team against your friends in battle over local wireless to gain experience and improve your rank*.

Get ready for a deep, charming RPG adventure set in the mysterious world of the Yo-kai in YO-KAI WATCH®, only on Nintendo 3DS family systems.

There has to be a Yo-kai around here somewhere!

Yo-kai wander around our world, invisible to most. Usually, they have no bad intentions, but they have a mind of their own paired with a unique talent! When something goes wrong in our everyday life, it’s often because of a Yo-kai in a mischievous mood...

With the power of the Yo-kai Watch, though, you can find these hidden Yo-kai, befriend them, and call upon their powers when you need their help. There are over 200 different types of Yo-kai, each with their own unique personalities, just waiting to be discovered!

Jibanyan

One of the first Yo-kai Nate discovers is Jibanyan. When he’s not lying around eating chocolate bars, Jibanyan likes to practise his fighting moves on passing trucks – usually with painful results!

Whisper

A Yo-kai that was sealed in a rock and appeared in front of Nate. He is a self-proclaimed “Yo-kai butler”. Whisper is determined to help Nate learn more about Yo-kai, whether Nate wants to or not!

Komasan

Komasan is a guardian lion-dog, but the shrine that he used to guard in the countryside was torn down. He recently moved from the countryside to the town, and is struggling to adjust to the fast pace of big-city life!

Blazion

The king of beasts with a mane of fire! A hot-headed lion Yo-kai with the ability to fire people up. Blazion believes you should always give it your all and try to be the best no matter how small the task.

Pupsicle

Pupsicle always feels cold, no matter how warm it is outside. If you're freezing and need to wear layers of clothes, even in summer, he may have cooled you down.

Find them and befriend them!

If you are lucky enough to befriend Yo-kai, they will give you their medal as a show of friendship, which you can collect in your Medallium. You can keep six of these medals in your Yo-kai Watch at a time to call upon these Yo-kai in battle, so choose wisely!

It takes all types

There are over 200 types of Yo-kai, each belonging to one of eight different Yo-kai tribes. If they are side-by-side in battle with members of the same tribe, it will increase their abilities.

Tribe: Slippery

Slimy, elusive Yo-kai who are hard to catch.

These sneaky Yo-kai lurk in the shadows, then go all out with strong techniques.

wheel-char-pink.jpg

They may be cute, but they strike faster than lightning with a barrage of attacks.

wheel-char-orange.jpg

Tribe: Tough

Defensive-minded guardians who make great bodyguards.

wheel-char-green.jpg

wheel-char-blue.jpg

wheel-char-purple.jpg

Creepy, crawly Yo-kai that send chills down your spine. 

Double trouble

They say two heads are better than one, but what about two Yo-kai?

CI16_3DS_YoKaiWatch_Doubletrouble.jpg

Yo-kai Fusion is an ancient technique that combines certain Yo-kai together to make a new, more powerful combo. You can even fuse some Yo-kai with items you might find around town! Experiment with different combinations and see what you can come up with.

The story begins

CI7_3DS_YoKaiWatch_Whisper.jpg

A self-proclaimed “Yo-kai butler”, Whisper is determined to help Nate learn more about Yo-kai – whether Nate wants to or not!

CI7_3DS_YoKaiWatch_Jibanyan.jpg

Jibanyan strikes!

CI7_3DS_YokaiWatch_Adventure.jpg

Adventure awaits in Springdale

In the YO-KAI WATCH game, you will travel across a vast landscape, from mountain back roads to bustling city streets, meeting lots of different people and even some Yo-kai that will ask you for help.

Some of your quests are part of the story, but others are just for fun. Either way, doing these are a great way for your Yo-kai to gain experience and get stronger. You can even earn some cool items!


Friends and frenemies

Katie, Eddie, and Bear are Nate's best friends – well, best human friends, anyway! You'll run into them and lots of other interesting characters on your journey.

CI7_3DS_YoKaiWatch_Characters_Katie.jpg

Katie

A friend and classmate of Nate, Katie is often the unknowing victim of Yo-kai mischief.

CI7_3DS_YoKaiWatch_Characters_Bear.jpg

Bear

Bear may be big and tough on the outside, but he still has the same problems other kids do – like having a crush on Katie!

CI7_3DS_YoKaiWatch_Characters_Eddie.jpg

Eddie

Eddie only believes in what he can see, so he would never believe in Yo-kai – even when they make him dance all day!


CI7_3DS_YoKaiWatch_friends-device.jpg

Choose your own adventurer

You can play as either Nate or Katie in your Yo-kai quest, or rename them and make up your own character.

Unleash the power of your Yo-kai Watch!

Your Yo-kai Watch will let you see and battle Yo-kai causing mayhem around town.

Make friends with Yo-kai, then assemble a team to help your friends and neighbours in the town of Springdale.

I spy Yo-kai

There are over 200 types of Yo-kai lurking in the shadows around town. Do you have what it takes to find them all?

CI7_3DS_YoKaiWatch_find-screen-12x.jpg

Check your Yo-kai radar

Is the needle twitching on your Yo-kai Watch? That means a Yo-kai is near!

CI7_3DS_YoKaiWatch_find-screen-22x.jpg

Look through your lens

If you find anything suspicious, press the Y Button to use the Yo-kai Lens to take a closer look.

CI7_3DS_YoKaiWatch_find-screen-32x.jpg

Look what you found

It's a Yo-kai! If you impress them in battle (or if you bribe them with the right treats) they might give you their Yo-kai Medal.


Team up and take them on

Your Yo-kai do most of the battling themselves, but you can help them in four important ways:

CI7_3DS_YoKaiWatch_Yokai_Boss1_EN.jpg

  • SOULTIMATE: Unleash the ultimate Yo-kai moves.
  • TARGET: Help your Yo-kai focus on a certain foe, or a weak spot on a boss.
  • PURIFY: If your Yo-kai gets Inspirited in battle, heal it and gain extra experience points.
  • ITEM: Use items you've collected to help your team or to get an opponent to like you.

CI7_3DS_YoKaiWatch_battle-char-red2x.jpg

Team chemistry

Yo-kai from the same tribe fight better together, but they must be next to each other to unleash their combined Unity power, so choose their place on your Yo-kai Watch carefully.

CI7_3DS_YoKaiWatch_baddies-character2x.jpg

Take on the big baddies

You'll need to use all of your strategising skills against the super strong Yo-kai bosses. Often, though, these seemingly unbeatable baddies will have a glaring weakness you can exploit.


Power up your Yo-kai

There are several not-so-secret techniques to transform your Yo-kai into a more powerful persona.

CI7_3DS_YoKaiWatch_transform-fusion-screen-32x.jpg

Fusion

Mr. Zen, the monk in Shoten Temple, can fuse certain Yo-kai together to make a new, powerful combo.

Combine Jibanyan and Roughraff to create the supercool bad kitty Baddinyan.

CI7_3DS_YoKaiWatch_transform-synthesis-screen-32x.jpg

Synthesis

Some Yo-kai can even be fused with everyday objects. Try different combos to unlock rare Yo-kai!

Combine Chansin with the blade to unleash the legendary swordsman Yo-kai Sheen.

Evolution

The more your Yo-kai battle, the more experience they gain. Once they reach a certain level, some Yo-kai will become a new, improved version of themselves!
