It’s Hasbro who is taking care of the various Yo-kai Watch toys in the West, and it looks like they are not going to bring only what was released in Japan. Indeed, Siliconera spotted a listing on the official Hasbro website for a Yo-kai Watch version of Game of Life and Monopoly Junior!
Yo-kai Watch Game of Life ($19.99)
Hasbro doesn’t provide a description for this game, but the packaging does mention that it contains two exlusive Yo-kai Medals (which are not part of gameplay).
