The colorful world of Level 5’s Youkai Watch will be captured in more than just a video game. The publisher has announced that the title will be branching off to become both an anime series, as well as a manga series. The anime will debut on Japanese television in January of next year, while the manga will be serialized in Shogakukan’s colorful Ciao magazine from December of this year. The game itself, which is still not confirmed for release outside of Japan, will be available exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS in Japan on July 11th.
The anime and manga are probably out of the question, but let’s keep our fingers crossed for a localization announcement for Youkai Watch.
