The Nintendo 3DS is certainly no stranger to JRPG titles, especially those of the “monster-catching” variety, most notably the Pokemon series. For the past couple of years now, Japan has had a new contender on the scene, Level-5’s Yo-kai Watch, and now that franchise has finally hit American shores. The game has been often compared to Pokemon, but it also shares similarities with not only the Dragon Quest series, but the Mega Man: Battle Network games for the GameBoy Advance as well. Despite the similarities, Yo-kai Watch manages to stand out on its own. Yōkai, a more accurate spelling, is a Japanese term used to describe ghosts and other supernatural beings, so the “monsters” in question in this game are basically ghosts (named after puns in most cases).
