The June issue of Shogakukan's Coro Coro Comics magazine revealed on Monday that the Yo-kai Watch anime will enter the "Busters" arc in July. The arc will feature the characters T-Jibanyan and T-Komasan.

Both characters feature in the Yo-kai Watch Busters game, which shipped in Japan in two versions (Akaneko-dan and Shiroinu-tai) for the Nintendo 3DS in July 2015. The Yo-kai Watch 3: Sukiyaki game, which shipped in December 2016, also included a "Busters Treasure" mode featuring the characters.

The Yo-kai Watch Busters spinoff game allows up to four players to cooperate in battling boss Yo-kai. Players are given case assignments from Commanding Officer Bree, after which they can explore the town, recruit Yo-kai, and fight the big boss behind the case.

Atsushi Ohba launched a manga based on the game in Coro Coro Comics in May 2015, and ended the manga in August 2015.

The Yo-kai Watch television anime premiered on Disney XD in November 2015, and the second season premiered last August.

The first game launched in the United States in 2015. Nintendo released the first two editions of the second game under the titles Yo-kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits and Yo-kai Watch 2: Fleshy Souls last September in North America, and on April 7 in Europe.
