The definitive version of YO-KAI WATCH® 2 arrives, with all the content of the original versions plus a large helping of brand-new Yo-kai mischief on top, including new quests, new locations and new Yo-kai to befriend

Get ready for the ultimate journey into the mysterious and mischievous world of the Yo-kai, as YO-KAI WATCH® 2: Psychic Specters launches in Europe for Nintendo 3DS family systems this autumn.

In addition to all of the content from both YO-KAI WATCH® 2: Bony Spirits and YO-KAI WATCH® 2: Fleshy Souls, YO-KAI WATCH® 2: Psychic Specters offers:

· 12 brand new quests, including one that delves into the origins of the mysterious Darknyan - combined with the quests from Bony Spirits and Fleshy Souls, this gives a total of 100 quests to tackle

· The chance to befriend 15 Wicked Yo-kai, who have previously only appeared as adversaries – now giving a total of more than 300 playable Yo-kai

· Exclusive dungeons for owners of Bony Spirits and Fleshy Souls – players with save data from one or both of the previous versions can access new dungeons to fight special bosses and befriend exclusive Yo-kai

· New locations to explore, including the fantastical Gera Gera Resort

· An expanded version of the Yo-kai Watch Blasters local co-op mode, with powerful new bosses to defeat
