Saturday, June 30, 2018



YO-KAI WATCH™, the first animated series introduced by LEVEL-5 in the US, continues to be a successful staple of LEVEL-5’s cross-media franchises with two upcoming high-profile launches.  Starting July 2, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. PT/ET, the series will debut its third season on Disney XD, and on September 7, 2018, the YO-KAI WATCH™ BLASTERS: Red Cat Corps and YO-KAI WATCH™ BLASTERS: White Dog Squad games will be available on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.

“Disney XD has been an amazing partner for the YO-KAI WATCH brand and we’re excited to see the third season debuting soon and for our fans to enjoy the introduction of Hailey Anne, and a new lead Yo-kai, Usapyon,” said Yukari Hayakawa, Chief Operating Officer, LEVEL-5 abby Inc. “On the gaming front, Nintendo has given our fan base even more opportunities to explore the world of Yo-kai, interacting with the characters and storylines.”

Season 3 returns with Nate, Whisper, and Jibanyan as whacky hijinks around Springdale continue and a gaggle of new Yo-kai show up to create all kinds of new trouble. This time though, Nate isn’t the only one with a Yo-kai Watch!

Usapyon, the rootin’-tootin’ space cowboy Yo-kai enlists the help of sci-fi superfan Hailey Anne, giving her a Yo-kai Watch of her very own, which she will use to find Yo-kai who can help Usapyon with his ultimate project: building a Yo-kai-powered rocket! Together, this new duo is aiming for the stars!

Following the popularity of YO-KAI WATCH™ 2, YO-KAI WATCH™ BLASTERS will be released as a solo action RPG! Team up with your friends (locally* or online) to lead Jibanyan and his Blasters team in action-packed battles and missions, battling new and some old fearsome BIG BOSSES in an entirely new way. YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS drops you into real-time battles allowing you to control your Yo-kai as you strategize with different skills and equipment to become the strongest Blasters team.  Shorter, fast-paced missions allow you to embark on a journey to meet, befriend and battle more than 400 new and returning Yo-kai. Each of the two versions of the game contains exclusive Yo-kai to befriend, missions and bosses.  By trading between the two, you can collect all the Yo-kai!
