WHAT:

      The giant Yo-kai Watch inside the Nintendo World store in
Rockefeller Plaza is counting down the days, hours and minutes until
the YO-KAI WATCH game launches exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS
family of systems. The YO-KAI WATCH series is an absolute phenomenon
in Japan and promises to make a big splash when it launches in the
U.S. on Nov. 6. The game is part of a broad entertainment blitz of
video games, toys and an animated comedy series.
 
To celebrate the game’s exciting launch, Nintendo will host an event
at Nintendo World on Nov. 7. At the event, attendees can play games,
view the upcoming toys, learn the Yo-kai Dance and meet costumed
character Jibanyan, the feline star of YO-KAI WATCH. The first 75
fans in line will also get the opportunity to take photos and get
autographs from the creator of YO-KAI WATCH and Founder,
President/CEO of LEVEL-5 Inc. Akihiro Hino. LEVEL-5 Inc. is the
developer of the YO-KAI WATCH video game.
 
Starting at 11 a.m. and running until 2 p.m., the launch event will
be filled to the brim with fun activities, most themed after the
mischievous Yo-kai in the game.
 
Attendees can learn the hilarious YO-KAI WATCH dance and participate
in a scavenger hunt, fun memory challenges and a massive game of
“telephone.” All activities are inspired by Yo-kai from the game and
their unique personalities.
