Review: Yo-Kai Watch 3

Yo-Kai Watch isn't quite as prevalent as it once was. I mean just this week the flagship store for the series announced its closure in Japan. Despite its slow decline in public interest, the series is just as lively six years in. I'll take ...

Review: Yo-Kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits

I completely fell in love with Yo-Kai Watch within days of the show's western launch. Level-5 has been welcome in my house since Dark Cloud back in 2000, but it has only honed its craft since then with the fantastic Ni no Kuni, Professor La...
