Most of you regular readers already know that we are a huge gaming family. With different gaming consoles and a variety of games and genres, we can never get bored. The teen was able to buy herself a Nintendo 3DS not too long ago and now the other 2 nerdlings want their own. When given the opportunity to test out the new Nintendo Yo-Kai Watch game for the 3DS, she was excited, yet, I had no idea what it was. Yes, I know..how was that even possible?! I don’t even know how this one slipped through but I am hearing so much about it that I feel like an expert now.
About Yo-Kai Watch:
- Yo-Kai Watch started in Japan and is a video game craze over there. This is the first time it is available in the US!
- Yo-Kai are the embodiment of everyday problems who live all over the world. Have you ever found yourself running late or have forgotten your keys? It might be a Yo-Kai to blame! There are over 200 types of Yo-Kai ready to be discovered and befriended. Once befriended, they will give you their Medal, which can then be kept in your Medallium. Six Medal can be kept in your Yo-Kai Watch so you can call upon their powers when you need help. With the help of Yo-Kai friends, players are able to overcome challenges and help different characters solve everyday problems.
- Players can choose to play as the characters Nate or Katie in the quest, or make their own character! (The teen decided to make her own character.)
- Made exclusively for the Nintendo 2DS, 3DS, and even the new Nintendo 3DSXL
Being a homeschool family, we tend to have everything educationally focused. We have a ton of educational games on the PCs as well as the Flare Play Gaming system which streams educational games. We’ve used the popular building game, Minecraft, to build Spelling words, math problems, and even a Viking village during our Viking Unit Study. Learning is happening at all times of the day, 7 days a week but, sometimes they just want some good ol’ fashioned fun. This is where Yo-Kai Watch comes into play. 😉
The teen really enjoys this game and I didn’t even know that she had played a demo of it before we ever received our own! She was even nice enough to allow her soon to be 11 year old brother play a few times at night while in bed. Yo-Kai Watch has quickly become the new favorite game of the house!
Yo-kai Watch game is available online and wherever video games are sold at a suggested retail price of $39.99. Rated E for Everyone 10+.
