As part of the new deal, Plus Licens will represent the brand in both Nordic and CEE territories.

According to WorldScreen, Eva Brännström, executive VP of Plus Licens, said: "We are thrilled to have been appointed by VIZ Media Europe for Yo-Kai Watch.

"After a long period of US property domination, it's now perfect timing for a new Japanese property to enter the scene. The intriguing story and scope of characters is bound to attract children worldwide."
