Level-5 is gearing up to release Yo-kai Watch 2 in Japan and this commercial shows some of the Pokémon Japanese folklore creatures you can summon with the Yokai Watch. The Nintendo 3DS sequel includes all 200 yokai from Yo-kai Watch plus new creatures like Akaname, a yokai that cleans up bathrooms with its tongue. You can see him licking a bucket in this commercial standing next to Hitotsume-kozo, a cyclops-like yokai.


Yo-kai Watch 2: Founder and Yo-kai Watch 2: Head comes out on July 10 in Japan.

    “a yokai that cleans up bathrooms with its tongue”

    I need to wash my mouth out with bleach now.

    A modern Gegege Kitarou?

  • So it’s essentially Shin Megami Tensei for kids?

  • Tsurugi

    Every time I see Yo-Kai Watch I expect to read Yo-Kai Watch USA Nintendo Direct….

  • I get the Pokemon joke, but given it’s using JP folklore, it’s hard for the Pokemon joke to stick past the mons part (and SMT is a better reference as mentioned in the comments).

    Glad they’re sticking to advertising both the boy and girl side; pretty smart and can definitely help a lot. I’m curious about if you play as a girl in the historical period though too?

    Interesting title.
