Youkai Watch 2: over 6 million units shipped for all versions

Next week, Level-5 is going to reveal Youkai Watch 3 during its Level-5 Vision -The Beginning- conference (which will be streamed on UStream). In the mean time, Youkai Watch 2 just keeps on selling: today, the company announced that total shipments for all three versions (Ganso / Honke / Shin Uchi) have reached 6 millions.

Those 6 million units shipped include:

– all the copies effectively shipped to retailers
– all the copies sold on the Nintendo eShop

It doesn’t mean that Youkai Watch 2: Ganso / Honke / Shin Uchi has sold 6 million units just yet, but it’s only a matter of weeks. Last week, Level-5 announced that total sales for the Youkai Watch series had reached 7 million units: that means that Youkai Watch 2 makes up the vast majority of those sales.


While you could have clearly seen how the popularity of the franchise literally surged when the anime series started airing, it’s really when Youkai Watch 2: Ganso / Honke come out (on July 10th) that people realised just how big the franchise had become in barely a year.

The Youkai Watch franchise should be launched this year in Europe and North America.
