VIZ Media, the team that is charge of Yo-kai Watch’s comics and the TV show in North America and Europe, is confident that Yo-Kai Watch will become the next Pokemon. Clearly the team over at VIZ Media has extremely high expectations regarding how well the franchise will perform in North America and Europe once the game is released. Yo-Kai Watch is coming to the United States on November 6th and has seen huge demand in Japan.
“This will be the next big boys’ brand, essentially the next Pokémon. We have very high expectations for the market and for the UK. We are certainly bigger than Pokémon in Japan; we currently have 95 per cent market share in that region.”
