First Look At Level 5’s New Franchise, Youkai Watch


We have the first screenshots of Level 5’s new game, Youkai Watch. In addition to being a game, Youkai Watch will also extend into other forms of media, such as manga and anime.


The “watch” in Youkai Watch’s title is meant to be taken literally. The main character wears a watch that allows him to see ghosts. No release platform or date has been announced for Youkai Watch yet. While the screenshots may look like they’re 3DS resolution (400 x 240 px), they actually aren’t (they’re 400 x 225 px).
