Nintendo Yo-Kai Watch is a hit

This post was sponsored by Nintendo as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

Our oldest son just started kindergarten this past year. It’s been such a huge success for him. However, when he gets home, he really likes to just chill. I tried to come up with some ways in which he could just have fun for a little bit after school, not having to think about school work or homework. He loves his Nintendo 3DS and I heard about the Yo-kai Watch coming to the USA. Yo-kai Watch is a craze in Japan and it’s actually hitting the USA for the first time.

It’s just a fun game where Yo-kai are naughty little creatures that the player has to befriend. The end goal is to turn them into a team that battles other Yo-kai.  My son loved this and could spend hours doing it. We have always set a timer for electronics in our home, so he gets to play it a little each night. I, of course, was able to try it a little bit and was blown away by how fun it is.

I loved it because I felt like the Yo-kai Watch was an age-appropriate game that he loves. You can see him playing the game below in this picture. It’s the first thing he asks to do after school. I love it as a reward system too because he seriously loves it that much.


It’s also a very affordable game. You can pick it up at the store for $39.99, which is a great retail price. Prices may vary of course. So, if your kiddo has a Nintendo 2DS, 3DS, or 3DSX, they’ll love getting in on the gaming action of Yo-kai Watch. I can see why so many people love this game and why it’s a craze in Japan. It’s going to be a huge hit in the USA as well. My son loves it and all of his friends can’t stop talking about it. Learn more about Yo-kai Watch right here.
