If you are as big a fan of YO-KAI WATCH as J, you were probably over the moon when the announcement for YO-KAI WATCH 2 and YO-KAI WATCH: THE MOVIE (in select theaters October 15, 2016) came out. J has been wanting to play the game, but is unable to because his DS is broken. However, he jumped at the chance to watch and review the movie, that has tie-ins to the new game.
YO-KAI WATCH: THE MOVIE is an action packed, adventure filled, heart string tugging animated feature that fans of the series and games will love. Join Nate, Jibanyan, Whisper and some new friends as they take on The Wicked and try to save the world! YO-KAI WATCH: THE MOVIE had J at the edge of seat and laughing for almost the entire 95 minute run time.
As a casual watcher of the YO-KAI WATCH series, I really enjoyed the movie. I thought that there were some amazing lessons for kids about bravery, friendship, and hard work. YO-KAI WATCH: THE MOVIE is something that I really think kids can enjoy with their parents.
I asked J some questions about YO-KAI WATCH: THE MOVIE, and here’s what he had to say;
