    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.

    Psychic Specters is a sort of YO-KAI WATCH 2 Definitive Edition, that adds more and more contents: a perfect game for those who haven't played the main game yet, dispensable for everyone else.

    The new areas and new Yo-Kai creatures don’t justify the purchase of Psychic Specters for those who already have the previous versions, but for everyone else (especially for those who love the Pokemon games) the rich world and the improved battle system make this game a must-have.

    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 improvements received in Yo-Kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters are scarce enough to make the player interested in him. The mechanics continue to work but perhaps it would have been better to launch it as downloadable content.

    Yo-Kai Watch 2 Psychic Spirits is the Ultimate version of its predecessors. And that's not a good thing, nor is it a bad thing. The game offers cute creatures, a great soundtrack, but bland fights.

    Even though there is a lot to do in the game, much of it is going back and forth, backtracking which, once again is another thing that got on my nerves. The gameplay is also quite repetitive and for the most part on the easier side. Just as I started to enjoy and appreciate the game for what it was, it was nearing the end. Because of its downfalls, I can’t see myself wanting to play this game more than once, but for those who are fans and want to experience everything within the world of Yo-kai Watch, there might just be enough extra content in here to warrant you playing through again? Yes, that is a question and not a statement. What kept me going, however, was how nice the game looks. The story is also surprisingly captivating and legitimately interesting and the humour, while at times a little juvenile and crude and did make me laugh out loud. The gameplay though just isn’t up to scratch.

    Awesome game. My favorite game on the 3DS. I have put over 300 hours in the game and caught almost all yokai. I like the mechanics more thanAwesome game. My favorite game on the 3DS. I have put over 300 hours in the game and caught almost all yokai. I like the mechanics more than Pokemon and am scared of what they are changing with Yokai watch 4 on the switch. It was a blast destroying kids in online battles with my perfectly crafted team, I cant remember my rank "Teacher or Professor". Anyways. I loved grinding out secret items and putting together a well thought out team for online battles. I think I only had 1 S rank yokai and still would destroy people using demon types. Anyways best game on the system. Expand

    All the greatness of Bony Spirits and Fleshy Souls with the best version exclusive Yo-Kai to offer out of all 3, extra bosses that make BossAll the greatness of Bony Spirits and Fleshy Souls with the best version exclusive Yo-Kai to offer out of all 3, extra bosses that make Boss Rush mode even more difficult than it already was and a heartfelt conclusion to the story. This title also has exploits that make the grinding experience far more pleasant than the other 2.

    Only real flaws are the obnoxious befriending but it doesn't keep the game unplayable or take away the challenging, fast-paced battling.

    Truly one of the greatest games on the 3ds. It takes everything from the previous two versions of Yo-kai Watch 2, expands upon them. Truly theTruly one of the greatest games on the 3ds. It takes everything from the previous two versions of Yo-kai Watch 2, expands upon them. Truly the best version of Yo-kai Watch currently in English. It was a refreshing and exciting experience. It really says something when I have already played the previous versions twice and I was still willing to play it through again. I sincerely hope this series gets more recognition in the west.

    The original Yo-Kai Watch 2 versions (Fleshy Souls and Bony Spirits) were already huge improvements over the first game. Psychic Specters isThe original Yo-Kai Watch 2 versions (Fleshy Souls and Bony Spirits) were already huge improvements over the first game. Psychic Specters is the Pokemon Platinum/Crystal/Emerald of Yo-Kai Watch 2. Very similar story (there are one of two very minor differences) but where it truly shines over the original 2 versions is the post-game. The post-game has a lot added in Psychic Specters. If collecting Yo-Kai is your thing, there are also over 10 new collectible Yo-Kai compared to the original versions. If you don't want to start over, you also get the option of transferring your file from Fleshy Souls/Bony Spirits to Psychic specters and jump straight trough post-game.

    This game is a must have for Monster Collector games.

    Don't let everyone saying that this is a Pokemon clone fool you, this game is far from it and very unique and fun experience.
