The franchise is in line to become Japan's next Pokemon-level phenomena, finding success in games, manga, toys, television shows and even a movie.
Definitely true. I work in a convenient store and somehow Yōkai Watch goods are just brimming on the toys section.

Like Pokemon, it's main target are kids, but I could see it becoming a thing for teens and adults in the future.

The game is actually more similar to Dragon Warrior Monsters than Pokemon. Exciting news nonetheless, but the toy scheme worries me. It might be tamed a little for western audiences (and it was fairly tame to begin with).

Hopefully it does well and we'll be seeing Gold/Silver sooner rather than later.

I didn't know Ciel Phantomhive could read into the future. Can you tell my what my future looks like?

This just looks like rip off.

This news has made a mediocre, long day at work feel heavenly. I am pleased as punch to see this coming to the west, I am just hoping EU gets it first.

You won't, don't sweat. Even Level-5 recognizes you guys are sinking in big N.

Cool and all but Little Battlers eXperience/Danball Senki games in the west when

Seriously though, neat. I imported the first game but dropped it deciding it was something I'd really have to understand all the text in to fully enjoy unlike other Level-5 games. Hoping the game comes over quickly enough. The gameplay isn't really like either Pokemon or DQM, though it is closer to the latter.

I think that this is a really good game. I would really like to play this when it would come out next year since it seems pretty good.
