So what are these Yo-kai, you ask?
Yo-kai cannot be seen by the human eye, but hide everywhere! It's why you feel the urge to bust out in a dance in the middle of the classroom or why some mornings you simply can't pry yourself out of bed. Hundreds of these spooky, sometimes cute and usually mischievous Yo-kai secretly inhabit our world.
Let us introduce you to three of the 200 amazing Yo-kai characters you'll grow to love once you pick up the game and start to play:
Jibanyan is a slacker cat who saps your energy. When he's not lying around eating chocolate bars, Jibanyan likes to practice his fighting moves on passing trucks - usually with painful results!
Walkappa makes you want to go for a swim - or jump in a lake! Most kappas stay in the water, but this one is a landlubber. He keeps a bottle of water to pour on his head to stay wet, though.
Ever revealed a secret without realizing it? It might be the work of Tattletell, a mischievous Yo-kai who takes the form of an elderly woman.
All these characters above are a part of the free demo currently available to download in the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS. So what are you waiting for? Give it a try for yourself!
