Where will Youkai Watch become more popular, Eurpe or America?

America. 38 41.76%
 
Europe. 24 26.37%
 
It won't take of on either market. 24 26.37%
 
A Casper VS Youkai Watch ... 5 5.49%
 
Total:91

With Youkai Watch becoming a massive hit in Japan, even giving Pokemon a run for its money, I'm sure YW will be pushed as mush as Nintendo/Level 5 possibly can.  In terms of sales, the 3DS has sold better in NA. Europe, on the other hand, has a better track on games aimed at younger audiences, at least on the 3DS (Lego games, Tomodachi Life, Animal Crossing, and Level 5's own Prof. Layton). Where will Youkai Watch become more popular, Europe or NA? Or will it fail to live up to a fraction of its japanese success in both markets?

 

EDIT:

Here we have the opening week for Youkai Watch in the US. I'll post the european opening when it comes out.

Keiner kann ihn bremsen, keiner macht ihm was vor. Immer der richtige Schuss, immer zur richtigen Zeit. Superfussball, Fairer Fussball. Er ist unser Torschützenkönig und Held.

Europe is my guess.

I think the french will eat this shit up



America



America. won't be that big like Pokemon but it would sell better in the US than Europe.

To be honest, I don' think Yokai Watch will catch on anywhere else.. : /

Just watched a episode. Not a fan, not a fan of Pokemon either. I think I'm just too old for it. I live in usa. LOL. Yall are talking about a game? Sorry was talking about a episode on tv.



Europe



"Just for comparison Uncharted 4 was 20x bigger than Splatoon 2. This shows the huge difference between Sony's first-party games and Nintendo's first-party games."

My guess is that it'll do better in America, but NoA is still hilariously bad at getting these sorts of things out - at least NoE has an official anime channel.

In fact, I'd wager that in the absence of any mainline Pokémon game this year, NoE will do a better job with the advertising, but more in America will get to view the anime.

So, Europe it is.

But, please do note: This is relative to hoe large the install base is in Europe.



 
I WON A BET AGAINST AZUREN! WOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I say this.

Honestly, the Pokemon games are miles better than YW in everything but maybe aesthetics.
