3DS game shipping July 11 in Japan, TV anime adaptation premiering in January

Game developer Level 5 (Inazuma Eleven, Danbōru Senki) began streaming its second promotional video for its upcoming Nintendo 3DS game Yōkai Watch (Supernatural Creature Watch). The promotional video features game mechanics such as befriending supernatural creatures and having them support each other in battle against other creatures that are causing trouble around town. In addition, the video introduces features such as the ability to choose a male or female main character, and a camera that adds a supernatural creature to photos.

The game will ship in Japan on July 11.

The game's story begins one hot summer day when a boy named Keita discovers an old capsule toy vending machine in the forest. Keita receives a mysterious watch and meets a ghost butler named Whisper. Whisper tells Keita that the watch allows him to find hidden supernatural creatures — both good and evil — that he could not see before in everyday life. With Whisper and his other companion Jibanya, Keita explores his town for other ghosts to battle.

Level 5 has announced plans for anime and manga adaptations of the franchise as well. The anime will premiere in January.
