Viz Media has revealed that Hasbro's Yo-kai Watch toy line has been released in the UK.

Hasbro’s range includes the Yo-kai Watch and medals that allows fans to summon Yo-kai characters.

Users can also pair the toy line with the Yo-kai Watch video game for Nintendo 3DS, which will unlock more content for fans to interact with.

“With the release of the Hasbro Yo-kai Watch toy line, UK fans of the brand can now experience the full breadth of the Yo-kai Watch phenomenon,” said Pascal Bonnet, executive director of films/TV sales and licensing at Viz Media EMEA."

“Not only is the Hasbro toy range a superb play prospect in its own right, but when paired with the Yo-kai Watch video game for Nintendo 3DS, the brand truly bursts into life.”
