Out of the three versions this is the Yo-Kai Watch 2 to get, it's very much what has gone before, but this time they've thrown in the kitchen sink.

The introduction of online mode should please fans of multiplayer, and the translation into Russian made the game really accessible for many gamers, but...

Yo-kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters is the ultimate version of Yo-kai Watch 2. Despite the fact that the 3DS will still get new opus from the license, this one is probably the most complete released in Europe. The players who already have Fleshy Souls or Bony Spirits will only have a few novelties. As qualitative as these novelties can be, this can make people hesitate to buy the game at a high price, especially since the arrival of version 2.0. On the other hand, those who have not purchased the game since its release last spring can buy it without hesitation.

Ignore the obvious Pokémon comparisons, and you'll find that Yo-Kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters is a charming RPG that manages to take a familiar idea and easily reinterpret it into something fresh and youthful. Yo-Kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters is the sum total of that experience, a reset on a pair of established games that adds even more to its distinct formula of crossing through to the other side. All aboard the Hex Express for this one.

Yo-Kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters looks appealing and it has something going for it but unfortunately it gets too mired in dull moments, especially in combat and on its missions and the game's depth doesn't allow for a significant and compelling experience. While younger children may like it, it's a rather easy game to overlook.

With such fundamental narrative additions and rich locations to discover, Psychic Specters is undoubtedly the most complete, accomplished version of Yo-Kai Watch 2, underlining its role of Japanese culture's ambassador at the same time. Yet considering the substantial updates released for Bony Spirits and Fleshy Souls, the decision to get this definitive edition will not only depend on what you possess, but also reveal if your are possessed by Level-5's wicked fanchise...

Yo-Kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters isn't just the best Yo-Kai game currently available outside of Japan, it's also a fantastic title in its own right. Though its opening hours retrace the first Yo-Kai Watch a bit too faithfully, the rest of the experience is absolutely worth it; this is an endlessly charming RPG that captures the fun and wonder of childhood adventure, with the added excitement of a few hundred paranormal pals. This Psychic Specters edition perfects the formula, and if you've never played any version of Yo-Kai Watch 2, this is the one to get — though even if you've already pledged allegiance to the Bony Spirits or Fleshy Souls, there's plenty here to draw you back in, and a save-import function means you won't have to start from scratch. A highly recommended haunting.

With the exclusive content from Bony Spirits and Fleshy Souls and all new content, Yokai Watch 2: Psychic Specters is the definitive release and best jumping point into the wacky JRPG series.
