Level-5 gears up for Yo-Kai Watch Wibble Wobble's European launch after hitting 10 million downloads

Level-5 and NHN PlayArt are gearing up to launch their casual game Yo-Kai Watch Wibble Wobble in Europe and Russia on March 30th after achieving over 10 million downloads elsewhere in the world.

The game is currently available in Japan, North America, Canada and Australia. The title, first launched in October 2015, sees players matching and tapping the titular Yo-Kai in order to befriend more demons.

A big hit?

"We're super excited to bring this fully localized version of YO-KAI WATCH Wibble Wobble to Europe and Russia - and to be able to share the Yo-kai story with the world at large," says Yukari Hayakawa, COO of LEVEL-5 abby.

"The app has already been rated 4.5 out of 5 stars in Japan, and has amassed more than 10 million players worldwide to date. With such fun characters and entertaining gameplay, we're confident that the localised European version will be a big hit as well."

Yo-Kai Watch is a hugely popular franchise in Japan, taking the form of 3DS games, films, an animated TV series and now a mobile title.
