Youkai Watch: Viz Media to distribute the anime series in Europe

As weeks go by, we get more and more details about the launch of the Youkai Watch franchise outside Japan. A few months ago, we learned that Dentsu Entertainement would distribute the anime series in the Americas. Then a few months later, Hasbro announced that it would launch some Youkai Watch toys in North America and Europe in 2016.

And today, Viz Media Europe has announced that it would distribute the Youkai Watch anime series in Europe. The company just teased it a few minutes ago, and said that more information would come soon…

According to Akihiro Hino (Level-5 CEO), the Youkai Watch franchise will be launched this year in Europe and North America. However, we still don’t have any info about the games themselves: we don’t even know who Level-5 partnered with in order to localise them.

And while we wait for more information, here’s some pictures about a Real-Life Treasure Hunt event, taking place at the Edo Wonderland Nikko Edomure until May 24th!
