Level-5 has confirmed its blockbuster franchise Yo-Kai Watch will be heading to iOS and Android in Europe and Russia this month with the release of Yo-Kai Watch Wibble Wobble.

the free-to-play game has already enjoyed over 10m downloads across the regions of Japan, North America, Canada, and Australia with its blend of puzzle gameplay and RPG mechanics. 

Inspired by the popular TV series, the game has players fight alongside Jibanyan, Komasan, and other bite-sized fan favourites to defeat, and befriend, dozens of Yo-kai in the world of Springdale.

“We’re super excited to bring this fully localized version of Yo-Kai Watch Wibble Wobble to Europe and Russia -- and to be able to share the Yo-kai story with the world at large,” commented Yukari Hayakawa, COO of LEVEL-5.

“2017 is set to be a great year for Yo-Kai Watch for Europe and Russia, as we look forward to the launch of Yo-Kai Watch Wibble Wobble, as well as as well as Yo-Kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits and Yo-Kai Watch 2: Fleshy Souls for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on April 7th. The app has already been rated 4.5 out of 5 stars in Japan, and has amassed more than 10 million players worldwide to date. With such fun characters and entertaining gameplay, we’re confident that the localized European version will be a big hit as well.”
