Level-5’s Yo-kai Watch series is one of the biggest series in Japan. Not only is Yo-kai Watch 2 a top selling game, the TV show is a hit and character goods are everywhere. Yo-kai Watch 2: Headliner is like a Pokemon Yellow version of the game. Even though this a third version of the game, Yo-kai Watch 2: Headliner has been a top seller in Amazon Japan. Right now, the game is in the top 10 beating Grand Theft Auto V for PlayStation 4 and one of the Pokémon 3DS remakes.
