Yo-kai Watch sets to haunts Disney XD


This is your warning

This is a fair warning to your wallet in advance now. Yo-kai Watch is on its way, prepare your wallet. The anime and video game phenomena that has swept through Japan and emptied the wallets of many Japanese parents is set to make a 26 English episode run on Disney XD later this year, with Nintendo planning to release the popular 3DS games in America in the winter.

Toys and merchandise are still flying off the shelves in Japan, with Yo-kai wrist watches fetching ridiculous profits with every subsequent release. It's still yet to be seen if American fans will gel with the story's roots in Japanese folklore and rather spooky premises, but with Nintendo and Disney backing the Level-5 created series, someone with deep pockets has faith.
