Publisher and developer Level 5 Games, who also brought us Ni No Kuni and Professor Layton, have struck gold once again with their latest title. Youkai Watch 2, the RPG sequel made for the Nintendo 3DS, topped Japan’s weekly sales charts, according to Famitsu magazine.
According to Famitsu’s listings, Youkai Watch 2 has made an estimated sale of 1.3 million copies while its predecessor, Youkai Watch, has a cumulative sale of almost 1.2 million copies.
With both of those games doing so well in Japan, it’s difficult not to remain optimistic about the possibility of Level 5 bringing Youkai Watch over to the west.
Youkai Watch 2 is now available for the 3DS in Japan.
