LEVEL-5, Fathom Events, and Eleven Arts are excited to bring YO-KAI WATCH: THE MOVIE EVENT to cinemas nationwide on Saturday, October 15 for a special one-day event!
YO-KAI WATCH is the popular animated TV series which began airing on Disney XD and streaming on Netflix last year. Riding a wave of critical and commercial success, Season 2 began airing this summer in a premiere time slot. Fan support has been so vocal, that LEVEL-5 couldn’t wait any longer to bring the first movie to the US. In its initial release in Japan, the movie was so popular that it set a box office records for advance ticket sales, and was the highest-grossing Japanese film in Japan in 2015!
In YO-KAI WATCH: THE MOVIE EVENT, Jibanyan, Whisper, and Nate meet a heroic Yo-kai named Hovernyan, and must travel back in time to team up with Nate’s adolescent grandfather to stop an evil Yo-kai from taking over the world! Can they discover the secret origin of the Yo-kai Watch and save humanity before time runs out!?
This exciting one-day event also introduces a whole new tribe of Yo-kai, new locations, and ties-in with the YO-KAI WATCH 2 video games for Nintendo 3DS.
Attendees of this event will receive an exclusive Yo-kai Medal* for the hero of the movie, Hovernyan! This medal will only be available to those attending the screenings. This exclusive Hovernyan medal will work with Hasbro’s new Yo-kai Watch Model Zero toy AND you can scan the QR code on the back of the medal into the YO-KAI WATCH 2 video games for Nintendo 3DS to unlock a special reward!
