Yo-Kai Watch 3 Takes Top Spot In Japan

According to this week’s Media Create sales numbers, Yo-Kai Watch 3 for the Nintendo 3DS debuted to 632,135 copies sold last week in Japan. This new title sees the characters visiting the United States for their latest adventure. Although this was the number one selling game for last week (second place went to Trails in the Sky 3rd Evolution for the Vita, selling only 10,485 copies), it did little to increase the sales of 3DS systems, selling only 7000 more than the prior week.

We’ve only seen the first game in the series so far, but the second one will be arriving at the end of September. No word on if we will see this third iteration, but if sales pick up for the sequel in the U.S., we stand a decent chance of getting this one localized as well.
