Yo-kai Watch Getting A Limited Edition 3DS XL Starring Jibanyan

By Sato . May 19, 2014 . 10:50pm

From anime and manga to games, and toys, it seems like Yo-kai Watch has it all, but it hasn’t had its own limited edition 3DS… until now, that is.


Nintendo and Level-5 just announced a special Yo-kai Watch edition 3DS XL that will be hitting stores at the same time the sequel hits stores this Summer.


The Yo-kai Watch Jibanyan pack 3DS XL shows the game’s cat monster on the front and back, with little silhouettes of other friendly yokai in the background.


While this limited edition won’t include Yo-kai Watch or Yo-kai Watch 2, it’ll come with six AR cards and a special data Card Dasu featuring the rare Golnyan yokai, for 18,000 yen (about $180).


The Yo-kai Watch Jibanyan pack Nintendo 3DS XL will be available on July 10, 2014, simultaneously with the release of Yo-kai Watch 2: Head and Yo-kai Watch 2: Founder.

    You say “XL” and not “LL” and I get excited! :(

    • Ramengeddon

      i would like it if they made it a habit to refer to the japanese one as LL for my heart’s sake. :<

      Sorry guys, we stick to localized terms for stuff like this :<

    Now there’s a first: a limited edition console tied to a game without the game itself. *facepalm*

    • Slickyslacker

      The Yoshi one did this too.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Pokemon on also did this though.T_T

    18000 yen? That’s a steal. Now, where can I secure me a copy at?
    This is a much better price than the $249 original cobalt blue import 3DS I was aiming to get.

    The Yokai Watch domination continues!

    Nintendo is really capitalizing all this Youkai Watch hype here lol. While it does not grant one the game, but it does grant the kids something collectibles here.

    Youkai Watch 2 release is going to be hugeeeeeeeeee.

    I’m not sure why you guys hyping about the game. Anyone here wants to explain it to me?

      Something sells in Japan -> must try. + pokemon resemblance.

      I’m not interested at all.

    If I didn’t already have a JP 3DS (not to mention I dislike the XL model for 3DS in general due to having small hands), I would’ve been all over this.

    Still waiting on version differences for YW2, though. And I’m talking about more than just different medals.
