A few weeks before E3, Nintendo announced that the third version of Yo-kai Watch 2, called Yo-kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters, would be released this Fall in North America. And just after E3, Nintendo of Europe announced that the game would also be released this Fall in Europe (despite the original two versions being released in April in that region).
And today, Nintendo finally announced the release date for Yo-kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters, which has been set to September 29th in Europe in North America. It will be the first time a Yo-kai Watch game is released simulaneously in all regions ( Yo-kai Watch and Yo-kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits / Yo-kai Watch 2: Fleshy Souls were all released on separate days in North America, Australia, and Europe).
But that’s not all… Nintendo also uploaded a brand new trailer for the game, that showcases the exclusive elements from this third version of Yo-kai Watch 2:
- exclusive Yo-kai (Dark Kyubi, Illuminoct)
- ability to befriend Wicked Yo-kai
- new S-Rank Yo-kai (for all versions! Fleshy Souls gets Komasan S, Bony Spirits gets Jibanyan S, and Psychic Specter gets Komajiro S)
- new exclusive quests (Story of Darknyan, Story of Dame Dedtime)
- the Hexpress, that leads to new areas to explore
- new powerful bosses to defeat
- expanded Yo-kai Watch Blasters mode (with Rubeus J and Hardy Hound appearing as special bosses)
Of course, you will be able to transfer your save data from Yo-kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits and/or Yo-kai Watch 2: Fleshy Souls!
Here’s the trailer for Yo-kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters on Nintendo 3DS:

This simultaneous release makes us wonder about Yo-kai Watch 3 (provided Nintendo and Level-5 are interested in bringing it to the west). It most likely wouldn’t be before Fall 2018, but who knows if it would be a simultaneous release or not.
Yo-kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters (3DS) comes out on September 29th in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Releases page has been updated!
