A European release date had finally given by the Nintendo 3D's exclusive Japanese role-playing game. "Yo-kai Watch 2" will arrive this April 2017 in Europe as announced by its publisher, Nintendo. The European players can now finally get the game and give it a try.

According to Gamespot, "Yo-kai Watch 2: Bony Sprits" and "Yo-kai Watch 2: Fleshy Souls" are the two split versions of the sequel. Players can trade five exclusive yo-kai creatures locally or online. The five exclusive yo-kai creatures are included in each of the two versions. The game's trading functionality between the two versions now and the critter-collecting elements lately have been often compared to Pokemon.

Before a North American launch on September 30, 2016, "Yo-kai Watch 2" first came out in July 2016 in Japan. The game originally debuted on July 10, 2014, in Japan on the Nintendo 3DS. European players will be able to pick up the game on April 7, 2017, and enjoy the Nintendo 3DS JRPG. These means that the gap between North American and European debuts is just over six months.

"Yo-kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits and Fleshy Souls" have taken their way to Europe a little longer, according to NINTENDOLIFE. In the recent financial presentation of Nintendo, a successful territory for the Level-5 franchise was highlighted, and that was Europe. The European loves the game most, for the original Yo-kai Watch sold faster in Europe than it did in Japan, Nintendo stated. The Nintendo's Yo-kai Watch was selling faster in the region compared to Japan in their first 38 weeks of release.

During its first year and beyond in Japan, it was said that it was an IP that continued to accelerate its sales. Nevertheless, it was an impressive statistic which will encourage Nintendo of Europe's localization to get closer to the North America's release timeline.
