Yo-Kai Watch (妖怪ウォッチ Yōkai Wotchi?, trademarked in Japan as Youkai Watch and Yokai Watch) is a series of role-playing video games developed and published by Level-5.

The 3D feature was much improved, and a second analog control was added. In territories outside of the […]
She’s the original Fly Girl of In Living Color — Game Boy Color, that is. Shantae, our favorite purple-haired, gold-bangled half-genie hero first made her debut in 2002. Despite the fact that the Game Boy Advanced was released in 2001, Shantae’s debut adventured conjured a cult following. Whipping forward eight years, Shantae cast a spell […]
