That’s the question Level 5 International America are asking their fans over Twitter. Earlier today, Level made the following tweet:
Between the game and the anime, Yo-kai Watch is a success in Japan! Would you like to see Yo-kai Watch in the US/EU? https://t.co/sFgMsAMLXf

Yo-kai Watch is a Nintendo 3DS RPG that has you playing as a boy or girl with the ability to see and communicate with youkai. During the course of the game, you explore the town you live in, befriend youkai, and use them in battle against their evil counterparts.
You may notice that Level 5 spelt the game’s title as “Yo-kai Watch,” which is the same spelling they used in a recently filed trademark for the game in America. Hmm…
As Level 5 say in their tweet, Yo-kai Watch—we’re going to start using that title now—has sold very well in Japan indeed. It has sold over 400,000 copies at retail, and a second game is currently in development.
Level 5 also made the same post about Yo-kai Watch on their Facebook page.
