In YO-KAI WATCH: THE MOVIE EVENT, Jibanyan, Whisper, and Nate meet a heroic Yo-kai named Hovernyan, and must travel back in time to team up with Nate’s adolescent grandfather to stop an evil Yo-kai from taking over the world! Can they discover the secret origin of the Yo-kai Watch and save humanity before time runs out!?
This exciting one-day event also introduces a whole new tribe of Yo-kai, new locations, and ties-in with the YO-KAI WATCH 2 video games for Nintendo 3DS.
