Europe’s going to see an influx of spirits in both 2016 and 2017, due to a number of Yo-Kai Watch related announcements Nintendo has been making. Yo-Kai Watch 2’s release has been official confirmed, with both the Bony Spirits and Fleshy Souls variations appearing on European Nintendo 3DS systems sometime in spring 2017. To compare, both versions of the game will be released in North America on September 30, 2016.
A Yo-Kai Watch Nintendo 2DS bundle has also been announced for the region. On October 7, 2016, a black and blue handheld with Yo-Kai Watch pre-installed will be released. It will launch on the same day as a pink and white Nintendo 2DS bundle with Style Boutique 2: Fashion Forward.
Yo-Kai Watch 2 debuted on the Nintendo 3DS in Japan on July 10, 2014, one year after the release of the original Yo-Kai Watch.
