Nintendo and Level-5 have announced a western release date for Yo-Kai Watch.

Not only is the game being released in the west, but an animated series based on the franchise will air on the Disney digital cable channel this fall.

In November, VIZ Media’s Perfect Square imprint will launch the Yo-Kai Watch manga, written and drawn by Noriyuki Konishi and it will be available exclusively in print on a bi-monthly basis.

In January, Hasbro will introduce toys and games centered around collectible medals, each representing a unique Yo-kai.

Now with all that out of the way, here’s what you can here for: Yo-Kai Watch will be released in the west on 3DS November 6.

In Japan, the game franchise has sold 8 million units and has made over $2 billion in retail merchandise sales, including games, music and publishing.
