Product Details:

Nintendo 2DS System comes pre-installed with Yo-Kai Watch.

Nintendo 2DS offers new players all the benefits of the Nintendo 3DS system minus the 3D visuals. The system is designed to give first-time players an accessible entry point into the exciting world of Nintendo hand-held video games.

Features:

  • Plays the entire library of Nintendo 3DS games in 2D, as well as most Nintendo DS games.
  • Durable single-unit construction makes it perfect for younger players. No hinges means less chance of accidentally damaging the system.
  • Touch-screen game controls, StreetPass interactions with other Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo 3DS owners, online multiplayer functionality and the ability to download and purchase games from Nintendo eShop.
  • Parental controls that let adults manage the system's content.

About Yo-Kai Watch:

YO-KAI WATCH features hundreds of sometimes cute, sometimes spooky and usually mischievous Yo-kai that inhabit our world. Players must use their Yo-kai Watch to find Yo-kai, befriend them, and turn them into a team to battle other Yo-kai. More than 200 Yo-kai are hidden all around the world, and each Yo-kai has its own unique skills and characteristics.

Yo-Kai Watch

A Worthy Pokémon Competitor
by Kyle Hilliard
Concept:

Take the core tenants of Pokémon and translate them into a different world with a sillier tone and a novel take on combat


Graphics:

Despite some clever creature designs, the overall visual style doesn't distinguish itself


Sound:

None of the music or voice acting is grating or obnoxious (which is a danger in games skewed towards younger players), but nothing stands out as being particularly memorable, either


Playability:

Switching between stylus and button controls is annoying. You can technically pick one control style and stick with it, but playing successfully means switching back and forth. Separately, field movement and touch-screen controls feel great


Entertainment:

Yo-Kai Watch has a great sense of humor, unique combat, and collection hooks that sink in quickly


Replay:

Moderately high

Yo-kai Watch is a big seller in Japan, and it's easy to see why. The Pokémon comparisons are inevitable; you explore an open world collecting creatures (Yo-kai ghosts) to build your army, and the Yo-kai are capable of evolution as they gain experience. Yo-kai Watch even has an accompanying anime series which recently started airing in North America. Despite its overlaps with Nintendo's juggernaut franchise, Yo-kai Watch is far from a rip-off. It's a well-designed entry in the collectible creature genre that does plenty to establish its own identity.

The titular Yo-kai are ghosts haunting the world unseen by humans. Circumstances allow you to see them where others can't and recruit them to your team, where they help you fight the bad ghosts and retrieve more of the good ones. Exploring a secret world unseen by others and building your small ghost army has a certain charm, and helping them evolve and grow quickly becomes an exciting venture.

Finding the Yo-kai requires active searching on the part of the player. Getting ambushed by Yo-kai is a rare occasion, allowing you to avoid combat if you're not looking for a fight. I generally find random battles to be frustrating, and I am glad to see Yo-kai eschew this common RPG nuisance.

Collecting the ghosts involves simply fighting them with the crew you have already amassed. You won't be throwing a Pokéball equivalent; the creatures randomly decide to become your friends after a battle. The likelihood of them joining you can be increased by feeding enemy Yo-kai health items, which opens an interesting research game of figuring out what kind of food each Yo-kai likes and wants to eat. I like this style of collection, as it disconnects getting new creatures directly to a specific type of inventory item. If you want a specific Yo-kai, your best bet is to seek out an area where lots of them hang out and just keep fighting. You miss out on recruiting that rare Yo-kai from time to time, but you also get all kinds of others without actively trying or expending inventory, which is a worthy trade-off.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product! Good to use. Although the buttons is a little loose, but the price makes it a good deal. However Gamestop shipment is a little too long, they took 3 business day to send to UPS. Maybe they had a hard time to find a stock.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great system. Meh game. The 2DS is worth the price. The system is comfortable and the 3d stereoscoptic¿ 3d is not missed. There are other 2ds systems with included games for the same price, and as a JRPG, Level-5, and Pokémon fan, I cannot recommend the Yo-Kai Watch bundle as the one to get. The combat is too simple to enjoy, even with self imposed difficultly restrictions (ala Nuzlocke). Most of the Yo-Kai aren't particularly charming..... But mostly it's the combat. Did I mention the system is: 10/10?

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Deal So I bought this about six months ago and I must say I am surprised. I had been looking to buy a 3ds for a while and when I finally had the money my sister begged my mom not to let me get the 3ds or the XL variant on account of me complaining about my hands after long sessions with the dsi(since the original 3ds was about the same size) and because the the 3d effect would mess up my eyes. So my sister showed me the 2ds and at first I was a little skeptical being as how there was no 3ds and it had one speaker, but hey I bought it anyway. Though, as soon as I held and turned it on any and all complaints were gone, It was comfortable in my hands and I honestly couldn't care less about 3D and after about three hours of playing I felt no pain. And Yo-kai watch was pretty fun, with so much to do it took me one month to beat two missions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick delivery, Quality product The 2Ds arrived quickly. The system was well packaged and had no damage. The system has all the functions of the 3DS minus the 3D that my son doesn't use anyway. My daughter keeps stealing it from him so I ordered another for her.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Totally Worth it! I've been wanting some sort of DS console for a while, but the Ds seemed lame, and the 3ds was SO EXPENSIVE. Eventually, I gave up my hopes. But then I saw this bundle. The 2ds is an awesome buy, and the game is very challenging and fun! Whether you're getting your first DS, or if you're a console collector, this bundle is perfect for you. The other bundles are about the same except with different games. The only down-side is that it doesn't fold up like other DS consoles. But you can get cases. Enjoy!
