Egmont to launch exclusive Yo-Kai Watch-themed issue of Showcase

UK children’s publisher Egmont is gearing up for the launch of an exclusive Yo-Kai Watch themed issue of its hit magazine, Showcase.

The popular anime series shot to fame across the globe last year, having originated in Japan where sales of the franchise outpaced the popularity of Pokemon.

The property currently spans a videogame from Level-5, a toy range from Hasbro as well as a hit anime series that currently airs in the UK on Cartoon Network.

The new Yo-Kai Watch special issue of Showcase will tell the story of the show’s lead character Nate and his adventures with the various Yo-Kai featured in the series.

The magazine will feature information about the different Yo-Kai tribes, which Yo-kai are the strongest and how to summon them with the Yo-Kai Watch.

It will also include a number of puzzles, games and cut out masks as well as a Yo-Kai disc spinner with a chance to win a Nintendo 2DS and a copy of the Yo-Kai Watch videogame.

Aimed at boys aged seven and upwards, Showcase: Yo-Kai Watch magazine will hit shelves on November 2nd priced at £3.99.
