A look into the world of Yo-kai can be found in the Theme Song trailer, premiering today.
In YO-KAI WATCH players will investigate strange goings on in their town of Springdale, where the hundreds of mischievous and invisible Yo-kai are behind many of the problems facing local residents.

With unique and funny characters, a large town full of shops, parks and bustling city streets to explore, plus hundreds of quests to complete, YO-KAI WATCH offers Nintendo 3DS owners a uniquely fun experience for all ages.
Get ready for an introduction to the wonderful world of the Yo-kai when YO-KAI WATCH launches for Nintendo 3DS family systems on 29th April in Europe.
