Yo-kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters is the definitive adventure between the three games, then. But, that’s to be expected. It isn’t without its shortcomings, but for those that are yet to return to Springdale, it’s the perfect place to start. Quirky and packed with charm, it’s the best Yo-kai game to hit Nintendo 3DS.

YO-KAI WATCH 2: Psychic Specters is a charming RPG filled with character and plenty to do, but if you’ve played the original game, keep in mind that you’ll largely get more of the same.

While the original game was launched in two different editions just a few months ago, Level-5 and Nintendo chose to release yet another version of the same game with just a few interesting additions. The software house could have released those new contents via DLC instead of launching a whole, full-priced package. If you already experienced the original game, the new addition are not worth the current price, but if you never tried the Yo-Kai Watch 2 adventure you should pick this new version to experience the "definitive edition" of the handheld RPG.

While there's nothing fundamentally wrong with Psychic Specters - it is, after all, the most compre-hensive entry in the series, and Level-5's signature polish emanates throughout - yet it is also more than a little disappointing to see a fully-priced release add so little to the base game. Hardcore fans intent on purchasing should be aware that the new content is a little on the thin side, although it does make for a decent place for newbies to start their YO-KAI collection.

Yo-Kai Watch continues to be a delightful mix of morality stories for children, nostalgia for what it's like to be a child in suburban Japan, humour and monster collecting. The series may well never hit the same notes of mainstream popularity as Pokemon, but the fact that Pokemon has got a very genuine competitor in this particular genre, finally, is hopefully a sign that will push both franchises forward into the future.

Yo-kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters is the best game of the series outside of Japan. It's good to know that its contents are enjoyable either by beginners who start their adventure or by those who played hundreds of hours in past versions and seek challenges that fit their skills. Having said that, the game could be sold as an expansion instead of a full priced game.

Yo-Kai differs in a number of ways that makes the experience a bit more drab. There isn't much strategy when it comes to battling, and I wish encountering and befriending Yo-Kai were a little more intuitive. Yo-Kai Watch 2: Psychic Spectres is a solid title that overall was a pretty fun experience, but it does have its flaws.

Yo-Kai Watch 2 isn't Pokémon, but if you are looking for a monster collecting game that isn't freemium garbage for your phone, you need to pick up Psychic Specters.

This is definitely the best version of Yo-Kai Watch 2, and we recommend it to the uninitiated of the franchise, but we wouldn't do the same with people who already finished any of the previous versions.
