A few months ago I didn’t know what Yo-kai Watch was. Thankfully I have a second grader who is very into her Nintendo DS games and watches Disney XD, so she enlightened me on the game and the upcoming movie. I have to be honest, I still don’t quite understand it but the kids love it and that’s all that really matters when it comes to kid’s shows. The most surprising thing is that the Yo-kai Watch movie will only be in theaters ONE day! That’s right- October 15, 2016 is your only chance to take your Yo-kai fan to see the movie. You can get your tickets for Yo-kai Watch and have a family movie weekend.
Did you know Yo-kai Watch is the first English-language film based on the global Yo-kai Watch phenomenon? When you attend the Movie Event, you will also have the chance to receive a limited-edition Hovernyan YO-MOTION YO-KAI MEDAL, while supplies last. This medal is compatible with the YO-KAI WATCH MODEL ZERO from Hasbro, and can also unlock special content in the LEVEL-5 apps Yo-kai Watch Land and Yo-kai Watch Wibble Wobble and unlock special features and bonuses in the brand-new Nintendo 3DS games YO-KAI WATCH 2: Bony Spirits and YO-KAI WATCH 2: Fleshy Souls. Fans can also collect and store YO-MOTION MEDALS in the YO-KAI MEDALLIUM COLLECTION BOOK from Hasbro.
Here’s a little about Yo-kai Watch in case you feel a little in the dark like I did-
Yo-kai Watch is a cross-media universe, following the hilarious misadventures of an average human boy and his involvement with the mischievous Yo-kai (invisible beings that are the cause of life’s daily annoyances) all around him. Our young hero obtains a special watch, empowering him to discover and summon the mysterious Yo-kai, befriend them and then work together to solve everyday problems… problems that are often caused by other trouble-making Yo-kai!
The film follows Nate Adams and his Yo-kai friends, Whisper and Jibanyan, as they’re transported to the past to help Nate’s grandfather, Nathaniel, battle evil Yo-kai and invent the Yo-kai Watch. Yo-kai Watch: The Movie Event also introduces a new Yo-kai — Hovernyan, a floating blue cat who is Nathaniel’s heroic companion.
