Yo-Kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters [Post Game Throughts]
Product Provided by Nintendo!
I recently finished up a full let’s play of Yo-Kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters on the Nintendo 3DS and wanted to pass along a few of my thoughts that stood out during my time with the game.
- Having not played Bony Spirits or Fleshy Souls and only having a short time with the original Yo-Kai Watch a few years back, I was a bit concerned about feeling out of place within the story and game-play. Luckily, Psychic Specters was welcoming and I was able to grasp the story and basic mechanics within just a short time. There is a ton of good info and help within the “apps”/menu of the game so if you are unsure about something, you can usually find an answer there.
- The story in Psychic Specters kept me engaged and there are a number of parts which really stood out. Joining the battle between Bony Spirits and Fleshy Souls was entertaining and added a lot to the overall story and brought everything together story wise from the previous entries. Traveling back in time to meet Nathaniel (your Grandpa) and eventually fight side by side was a really cool moment in game. I also enjoyed the back story for Rudy and Amy, which helped fulfill questions I had a bit early in the game about Jibanyan. The story overall is full of emotions, there were times I laughed and even got a bit sad.
- Exploration around all of the areas in Psychic Specters can make for a really fun time. You’re often rewarded by finding and befriending Yo-Kai, finding Exporbs, and coming across new locations and shops. Being able to warp or fast travel between locations with Mirapo is very helpful and traveling became fun rather then feeling tedious like a few early moments in game on the train.
- Challenging. The game actually can be quite challenging. The battles between other Yo-Kai and the bosses offered up good variety. I lost quite a bit until I learned some of the mechanics and nearing the end of the game I lost a LOT. Even so, I spent quite a bit of time experimenting with different Yo-Kai and grinding to level them up the best I can which in turn made everything more rewarding when I defeated Dame Demona
These are just a few random, perhaps slightly organized thoughts with my experience thus far. I do intend to continue with post game content, doing more favors, and quests! I will update more later.
