And yesterday, the official Twitter account for the Yo-kai Watch series has confirmed the news. The movie will air at the following timeslots:

  • November 12th: 9AM ET/PT
  • November 13th: 5PM ET/PT
  • November 14th: 3.45PM ET/PT

To celebrate, some episodes from the second season of the anime series will be uploaded on YouTube starting next week. We can assume that, just like with those from the first season, the episodes will be region-locked.
