Yo-Kai Watch is coming to life tomorrow November 7 in the Nintendo World Store at Rockefeller Plaza from 11 am to 2 pm.
The giant Yo-kai Watch inside the Nintendo World store in Rockefeller Plaza is counting down the days, hours and minutes until the YO-KAI WATCH game launches exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. The YO-KAI WATCH series is an absolute phenomenon in Japan and promises to make a big splash when it launches in the U.S. on Nov. 6. The game is part of a broad entertainment blitz of video games, toys and an animated comedy series.
To celebrate the game’s exciting launch, Nintendo will host an event at Nintendo World on Nov. 7. At the event, attendees can play games, view the upcoming toys, learn the Yo-kai Dance and meet costumed character Jibanyan, the feline star of YO-KAI WATCH. The first 75 fans in line will also get the opportunity to take photos and get autographs from the creator of YO-KAI WATCH and Founder, President/CEO of LEVEL-5 Inc. Akihiro Hino. LEVEL-5 Inc. is the developer of the YO-KAI WATCH video game.
Starting at 11 a.m. and running until 2 p.m., the launch event will be filled to the brim with fun activities, most themed after the mischievous Yo-kai in the game. The adorable and smile-inducing Jibanyan costumed character interacting and taking photos with fans.
