Level-5 and Eleven Arts are screening Yo-Kai Watch: The Movie, the first Yo-kai 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 Yo-kai Watch and save humanity before time runs out!?
The film will feature the voice cast from the Yo-kai 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 Yo-kai Watch Model Zero toy, and unlocks content in the Yo-kai Watch Land and Yo-kai Watch Wibble Wobble apps, as well as the YO-KAI WATCH 2: Bony Spirits and YO-KAI WATCH 2: Fleshy Souls Nintendo 3DS games.
