Level-5 and Eleven Arts are screening Yo-kai Watch: The Movie, the first Yōkai Watch anime film, in U.S. theaters for a one-day event on Saturday. Fathom Events is listing the theaters that will show the film. All screenings will be at 11:00 a.m. local time.
Eleven Arts describes the film:
In YO-KAI WATCH: THE MOVIE EVENT, Jibanyan, Whisper, and Nate meet a heroic Yo-kai named Hovernyan, and must travel back in time to team up with Nate's adolescent grandfather to stop an evil Yo-kai from taking over the world! Can they discover the secret origin of the Yōkai Watch and save humanity before time runs out!?
The film will feature the voice cast from the Yōkai Watch television anime's Disney XD English dub. The film also introduces Hovernyan, a floating blue cat who is the companion of Nate's grandfather Nathaniel.
Theatergoers will also be able to receive a limited-edition Hovernyan Yo-motion Medal, which can be used with the Yōkai Watch Model Zero toy, and unlocks content in the Yōkai Watch Land and Yōkai Watch Wibble Wobble apps, as well as the YO-KAI WATCH 2: Bony Spirits and YO-KAI WATCH 2: Fleshy Souls Nintendo 3DS games.
