So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?
To do:
Some stuff:
  • Oddities and Errors
    • Higher model poly count in Yo-kai Watch 1 flashback scene graphics, likely leftover from late builds
    • Komajiro with purse texture sheet oddity
    • Typos in Russian version.
    • Gimme's voice clip saying "Swipinstuff" in English version.
  • More Regional Differences; different unlockable Psychic Specters Yo-kai Watch: The Movie settei art.

Yo-kai Watch 2 was what really started to elevate the franchise to a pop cultural success (well, at least in Japan). It is considered by many to be superior to its predecessor, as it includes better mechanics, an online-trading system and more consistency to the anime and manga series. This game also introduces more Yo-kai to collect (including version-exclusives), new locations, and even some new minigames.


Miscellaneous tidbits that are interesting enough to point out here.

Japan-only content?! Localization nightmares ensue!

Unused Graphics

Cutscene Placeholders

Inside yw2_a.fa/data/menu/ev_pic/ev_pic1210.xa can be found a duplicated of ev_pic0210.xa with a lot of debug graphics on top of it

Minimap Placeholders

Both t121d05 (Corresponding to San Fantastico) and t201i05 (Corresponding to Old Springdale) have placeholder minimaps, these are just a simple flat color with (仮) written on them.

Texture Oddities

Manga Book

The manga book cover used in a cutscene contains artwork of Professor Layton...with a logo resembling the Inazuma Eleven logo.

For some reason, when Terrorpotta is T-Posing, he has a desk above him, this is probably a leftover from his Soultimate Move.
