I mean, whatever floats your boat, but you aren't convincing me that this is going to scratch the Pokemon itch with critters like that.

It's semi-sarcastic, and there are better designs on offer (Jibanyan, the mascot, is pretty cool, and I've seen a kitsune floating around), although I kinda do like Fidgie for his daftness. At the end of the day it probably isn't going to scratch the Poké-itch, but then nothing else out at the moment is either, and it's sold something like a bajillion copies without being F2P so there must be something going for it.

Play it if you want, don't if you don't! I'll be giving it a go.

This is at the end of NLife's review

The groundwork is here for a franchise that could thrive for a long while to come, but Level-5 needs to rethink a few design decisions and put more focus into plot before Yo-Kai Watch reaches its full potential.

It's on it's 3rd game in Japan and may have reached it's full potential as this the first game that were getting that came out in 2013. Okay you have to review what's in front of you and I guess will have to sell well in the west for us to get 2 & 3 over here to see that possible potential but just found a little odd.

Forgot this existed until a few days ago, when a tweet for the official Twitter account appeared in my timeline. Now we have a date - 29th April! Dance

Chuffing brilliant. Grin It's suddenly looking like a very good year for the old 3DS.

Been saying that for a while Balla and if the NX is sort of replacing both systems in one go, it looks like the 3DS is going out with a bang unlike the Wii U's whimper.

I come to you fresh from playing the Yo-Kai Watch demo to completion.

I tried the demo yesterday, not sure about the combat system or the look of some of the Yo-Kai buyt I did like the world of springdale which reminds me a bit of moterville in Ni No Kuni.

I think if April remains how it is then this will get picked up.

Blitzed through the demo, and it's unique enough that I think I might buy the full game. The battle mode and Yo-Kai spotting are both pretty unusual and although they might turn out to be a little shallow, it was pretty fun!

I still haven't got around to playing the demo., but this comes out this week and I just pre-ordered. Foolish? Ah well, can't wait to get my Fidgephant on.

Think I'm going to take a step back on this one for the time being. I'll not play it until I've finished Bravely Second anyway. Make no mistake, though - it will be bought.

Glorious presentation, innit? I suppose that's Level-5 for you. What's Fat Mr. Ghosty (as he shall now be known)'s game, though? What is his game?

I've nicknamed my Yo-Kai thus far after Pokémon, because I'm unoriginal. So far we've got Ninjask the ninja cicada (honestly YKW that is a bit too close for comfort), and Pumpkabu the pathetic bird with a creepy face under its feathers.

We've now got Yo-Kai toys in work, I've not had a proper look but cool to see things in the wild.

It's really growing, I've started seeing it everywhere, maybe time for me to jump on the hype train.

Do it! I've really enjoyed my time with this. It's up there with the 3DS Pokémon games, partly because those weren't astronomical (the difficulty curve and small number of new monsters stick out like two sore thumbs), and partly because this, despite many similarities, is genuinely something new.

I hope you're right about this game Balla as I could have got Metroid Prime & Harvest Moon on Cube instead.

Given the price reduction in GAME, the lowered price point and the cash on my loyalty card, I've just picked this up for forty-two pence. Cool I am very much looking forward to playing. Hopefully I can get it done before DQVII comes out. Thumbs Up!
