The Yo-Kai Watch series was the hottest thing around in the early days of its existence. Level-5 was riding high on that wave of success, which in turn, sent the series exploding into all different directions. There were Yo-Kai Watch toys, cartoons, movies, and so much more. For awhile there, Yo-Kai Watch was everywhere you looked in Japan. Unfortunately, it seems that insane explosion of Yo-Kai Watch content is what caused the series to cool down so quickly.
When it comes to Yo-Kai Watch in the states, there was never really the spark that sent fans into a frenzy. The first game certainly made waves when it jumped across the pond, but things seemed to sputter quickly after that. Still, the franchise has its die-hards here, and it seemingly does well enough to warrant the localization of subsequent titles. That brings us to Yo-Kai Watch 3, the latest installment to release worldwide.
Yo-Kai Watch 3 launched in Japan all the way back in July of 2016. There were two versions made available, and then a third version called 'Sukiyaki' released shortly after in Dec. 2016. In both North America and Europe, we're only getting one version of Yo-Kai Watch 3, and it contains all the content found in the three different versions released in Japan.
Fans outside of Japan have waited quite a long time for Yo-Kai Watch 3 to be released. Now that it's finally here, was it worth the wait? For those who really love the franchise, the answer should be a resounding yes. For those on the fence or new to the series, it could be somewhat of a tough sell.
