The Yo-Kai Watch series has finally made its way to North America, but the series has been going strong in Japan for awhile now. As a matter of fact, the brand is so strong that it's already hit 10 million shipped between all titles. That includes the original outing, all sequels and spin-offs. Let's hope the localized version sees just as much success!
The rings above will be available at various retailers when you preorder Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3. Those retailers will give out download codes to get the in-game rings, which will give your character special benefits. The game releases in Japan on March 24th.
Six years ago, we started a journey born out of our shared love for competitive fighting games. Eventually, the electrifying passion that coursed through us arced out and drew in more people until our small circle of friends grew into a team, and that team grew into an international community. Project M and its community have grown larger than any of us ever anticipated, and it’s truly heartwarming to see all of the unforgettable connections and friendships that have been forged through this project.
Unfortunately, we’re here to say that we’re at the end of that road.
We’ve learned so much in the process of making Project M—accumulating life-changing lessons in communication, team work, professionalism, work ethic, and more—but there’s only so far we can take those skills in a volunteer project. With this in mind, we’ve made a difficult business decision: We’re ready to finish development here and move on to bigger and better ventures.
We realize that this will come as a shock to many of our fans. Please, forgive us. Again, it’s been an excruciating call to make, but it’s been made a bit easier by our satisfaction with the previous and final release, v3.6. We’ve spent six years polishing Project M, and rather than let it drag on through another several years of dwindling development and change-fatigue in the competitive circle, we’re going to consider our work complete.
In the mean time, we plan to be hard at work on new projects, built from the ground up. We can’t spill the beans just yet, but know that we’re looking towards a fresh start with brand new designs. Rather than splitting our focus, many of us want to dedicate ourselves to this new venture fully. In this way, we hope to maintain the level of quality and professionalism you’ve come to expect from us.
In summary, we are ceasing development of Project M (effective immediately) and will be making no further releases as we turn our attention towards an entirely new venture.
The TV show Adam Ruins Everything takes a look at various topics and shows you the 'truth' behind what your perception has been over the years. In a recent episode, Adam takes a look at how the game industry has been catering to mostly boys with advertising and largely ignoring the female gamer base. While Nintendo takes a bit of bashing at first, they also get major praise towards the end.
