Perfect timing, right?
Just this morning Level-5 reached out to its western fans to see if there was any interest in a Yo-Kai Watch localization due to its high amount of success in Japan. Following that inquiry, the developer revealed cold hard numbers for that success -- and it comes in at 500,000 copies sold. That number doesn't even include digital sales.
Wow! The 3DS does it again. Hopefully we'll see this released sooner than later overseas.
