Level-5 is making a big global push for Yo-kai Watch, the manga/anime/video game/movie franchise that’s been tearing up Japan since 2013. The first game in the series and the first season of the anime are already available in North America, and Nintendo of Europe announced today that the first game launches in Europe on April 29th. Additionally, the UK Twitter page for Yo-kai Watch has announced that the anime will begin airing in the UK just before the game launches, with the first episode releasing on April 23rd on Cartoon Network UK. Will it be able to live up to Viz Media’s billing as the next Pokémon?
