This post was sponsored by Nintendo as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.
My nine year old daughter is a bright young girl that does exceptional in school and is always coming home with A’s on her paper! Despite her current success in school, she has most definitely had her share of tears and frustration when it comes to homework and school projects. The school year can get so hectic with the amount of homework the kids receive, sports activities, family stuff and everything in between. I feel like there is so much pressure from our society to stay busy and keep our children as active as possible. I am a firm believer that you should find ways to give your big kids a break from their busy schedule. Whether it’s a trip to the local ice cream shop, an afternoon at the park or some time on her Nintendo 3DS, I always find ways to give my daughter that little break she needs to rest and re-energize.
If there is one thing our entire family has in common it’s that we love video games! This past Christmas my husband and I decided to gift our oldest daughter the new Nintendo 3DS. This is the perfect gaming device for her age and one that she will not outgrow for many years. She recently enjoyed some down time and had the opportunity to play Yo-Kai Watch. She was at Game Stop just last weekend and tested out in the store, it was an instant hit!
So what is that game all about? My daughter explained to me that she gets to collect Yo- kais by looking for them in the trees. You explore the world and use your Yo-kai Watch to find them, befriend them, and turn them into a team to battle other Yo-kai. They don’t always want to be your friend and sometimes you have to battle with them in order to impress them. There are also daily problems that need to be solved! Have you ever forgotten your keys or found yourself running late? Maybe a Yo-kai is to blame! When playing this game you must find and befriend these mischievous Yo-kai that inhabit the world and turn them into a team that battles other Yo-kai in order to solve these daily problems.
- With the power of the Yo-kai watch, find and befriend more than 200 hidden Yo-kai, found everywhere in the world, and call upon their powers when you need their help.
- Assemble a team of six Yo-kai in your watch to defeat evil and help people.
- Each Yo-kai has its own unique skills and strengths, so use strategy to assemble your team to address different problems and fight different evil Yo-kai.
- Make your Yo-kai Watch more powerful and upgrade your Yo-kai as you play through the story.
Apparently Yo-kai Watch is a is extremely popular in Japan and this is the first time it’s available in the United States. This game is made exclusively for the portable Nintendo 2DS and 3DS family of systems including the New Nintendo 3DSXL. The game is now available online and wherever video games are sold for $39.99.
Being the oldest of three is a tough role… being an active fourth grader isn’t easy! This girl of mine certainly deserves some time to just be a kid and enjoy a game that she truly enjoys and has fun playing. I just love when she befriends a new adorable Yo-Kai and tells me all about it. I can defiantly see from the excitement that comes from her why this is such a popular game with kids!
If you have a big kid that deserves a break and loves video games, I highly recommend Yo-kai Watch! I am so excited to share with you that one lucky fan is going to receive a Yo-kai Watch game.
