Can Youkai Watch Be The Next Pokemon?

Mii-gamer:

Youkai Watch (Yo-kai Watch) has taken Japan by storm. Since the debut of the original game last year - the franchise’s popularity has exploded with the advent of an animated series. I’ve heard some gamers liken the Youkai Watch (Yo-kai Watch) to the insanely popular Pokemon series, although Level-5’s game – has yet to reach the insane heights of Game Freaks signature IP – but I definitely can see the parallels between the two.

Fortunately, there are strong indicators the Level-5, perhaps in partnership with Nintendo, will be bringing the ghost hunting series to the west. If I were Level-5 or Nintendo – localizing Youkai Watch (Yo-kai Watch) would be my top priority. Why? Because I believe Youkai Watch can be the next Pokemon for Nintendo’s handheld systems. (3DS, Yo-kai Watch 2, Youkai Watch)
