If you've been watching Disney XD lately OR If you've been in a Target, a Walmart, a Hot Topic OR anywhere that sells video games ... Heck, if you've been around a group of kids lately, chances are you've heard of Yo-Kai Watch.

Initially released in Japan by Level-5 in 2013, just last year the first of Yo-Kai Watch games were translated and brought over for American audiences. In Japan, the game was a huge, bombastic hit. And why not? The creatures within the game were based on characters from popular Japanese stories. The kappa, the nekomata, and the kitsune, just to name a few. Via use of their Yo-Kai Watch, the main character -- Nate in the English version -- is able to see the invisible Yo-Kai, who haunt and inspirit the world around them.

Given it was so rooted in Japanese culture, it was thought that this series would have an uphill battle once it arrived in the US. But luckily, Yo-Kai Watch wound up with an extremely solid viewership on Disney XD. And the game -- despite a demo that was sort of 'eh' -- was a really inspired, beautifully detailed, fun game. The writing in the game really held it up, despite the battles sometimes becoming repetitive. Overall, it was a fantastic, moving experience to play.

So imagine how excited I was to see that the long-awaited sequel was finally announced. English fans had been campaigning under the hashtag '#LocalizeYW2' passionately, and it seems they've been heard. Or the game sold enough. Or hey, probably both. "Yo-Kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits and Fleshy Souls" will be arriving in America on the 3DS on September 30th, 2016. 

Kind of an odd name, right? Well, there's going to be two versions. If you're familiar with Pokemon (And sorry. it's a bit of a sore point when Yo-Kai Watch is brought up next to Pokemon. But sometimes comparisons need to be made) you probably are aware of the fact that typically two versions of one game are released -- Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, X and Y, etc. Well, that's what's happening here. The game introduces 184 new Yo-Kai, and some are split between the two versions of the game. There's also different quests, and different exclusive DLC add-ons between the two.

With new merch coming out, and the sequel on the horizon, it seems Yo-Kai Watch is really picking up speed here in North America. If you'd like to check out this phenomenon, "Yo-Kai Watch" airs weekdays at 5 p.m. on Disney XD
