    I already plan on buying the game, but this demo isn't going to convince anyone. I just played it and it is even worse than the demo for the first game. Literally one battle, about five minutes and that's it. It took longer to download than finish playing.

    The only thing pokemon can learn from youkai watch is to add furigana to the dialogues

    Got to play it at PAX West and one of the booth employees walked me through all the new changes to the game and some of the new systems. Really, though, it's just Yokai Watch 1 with a few new things tacked on. Same engine, same visuals, same gameplay (pretty much) except for a couple new commands, same way to capture new Yokai, etc. Kinda underwhelming for a sequel. It seems like a "Main Pokemon Game > Remake using same engine" kinda move. I'm hoping a future Yo-Kai watch 3 overhauls everything like Pokemon's "tick-tock" nature. If you liked Yokai Watch 1 and want more o' that, then you'll like 2.

    Yokai watch 3 has a little rhythm based mini game and a new girl character in it, I only played to the beginning but it feels different then what the first and second brings.

    The interesting aspect of Yokai Watch is creature value. Although the Yokai do have a stat system, making some yokai fundamentally better than others, the unique skills of each Yokai allows them to still retain value. Unlike with Pokemon, where if a Pokemon has awful stats it's just awful. The unique abilities system of individual Pokemon wasn't incorporated until the third generation, so they weren't designed in a way to truly be the end-all of strategy. What Pokemon can learn from Yokai Watch is sustaining value of all creatures instead of having "trash" nobody would want to use except as a joke or "because it's cute".

    Yokai Watch has many variables which can contribute to a successful battle and thus makes it more exciting than Pokemon since it isn't calculated. Each battle is different. I think it is a great system because it is like a reflection of the Yokai themselves: unpredictable creatures.

    so, that demo was short af, and barely shown any of the features. it literally took longer to download than to play to the finish, but, at least it showed that the map is improved, and theres more strategy to the combat now. im looking forward to its release date.

    That's promising! There's Japanese gameplay, but I haven't seen any of it yet. Yo-Kai Watch is an interesting series. I'm sure there'll be a group of children now who will remember it fondly when they grow up.

    There's also the yokai watch busters games that we will more than likely get after the second game seeing as how the 3rd game gives you special items if you have data from them.

    Well actually the demo is a little longer, you first need go to the town instead of heading to the barn, in the town you can find at least two hidden yo-kai which give you a real nice battle.
