Yo-Kai Watch TV Commercial
Nintendo has begun advertising for its upcoming RPG, Yo-Kai Watch. It does a pretty good job of explaining what Yo-Kai are in a 30 second TV spot. It’s quite zany and a bit reminiscent of older Nintendo ads in the 1990s. In addition to a cartoon airing on Disney XD at 4pm Central, Nintendo has released a demo on the eShop so you can get some hands-on time with the game prior to it launching on November 6.
I went hands-on with the demo and had mixed feelings. On one hand the game is gorgeous and the localization is fantastic. On the other hand, I hated the battle system, at least in the demo. I will need to see if it evolves into a deeper experience or not. What do you think? Are you planning on picking up Yo-Kai Watch?
