Nintendo of Canada Announces Yo-kai Watch Nintendo 2DS Bundle
Plus store events and giveaways.
For starters, the LEVEL-5 (Professor Layton, Fantasy Life) developed title will be the focus of a brand-new Nintendo 2DS console bundle. Retailing for $129.99, the console comes with a pre-installed version of the game beginning November 6th — the same day the game becomes available in stores and the Nintendo eShop for $49.99.
Yo-kai Watch is a slightly Pokemon-esque series, but rather than capturing and training a variety of creatures lurking in the wild, the focus is instead on the more than 200 cute, mischievous spirits that inhabit our world.
To prepare everyone for their arrival, Nintendo of Canada has also announced a series of events taking place at retail stores across the country throughout the remainder of October and November. There, the Yo-kai known as Jibanyan and Komasan (seen above) will be available to make new friends and allow them to try the game out for themselves at the following locations:
