Youkai Watch from Level-5 Confirmed for 3DS
« on: October 16, 2012, 08:02:45 AM »

The game of ghosts and watches resurfaces on Nintendo's handheld.

Level-5's new JRPG Youkai Watch is coming to Nintendo 3DS, according to a preview in CoroCoro magazine reported by Siliconera.

The game was initially revealed last year during the Level-5 Vision event, along with an accompanying anime series and line of manga comics.

Youkai Watch (which literally translates to 'Ghost Watch') stars a young boy who acquires a special wristwatch, allowing him to see spectral entities in the world around him. Although little gameplay has been shown so far, it appears that the protagonist can capture ghosts inside coins - by inserting these coins into his watch, he can then summon the ghosts to fight on his behalf.

No details regarding a release date or the possibility of a Western localisation were provided.
