    The thing about Pokémon is that it has elements from several cultures, not just japanese. They have western dragons, but they also have eastern dragons. They have a pokemon based off a european witch, but they also have a pokemon based off a futakuchi-onna.
    Yeah sure they can try to make that culture easier to understand through the game, but it's obvious that people will be more interested in something they grew up with. For example there is a really famous book here in Brazil named Sitio do pica-pau amarelo and it has several creatures from brazilian culture like Saci Perere, Mula sem cabeça e Cuca. Do you think people would rather read that book translated or a Harry potter book that has creatures that everyone knows like witches and fairies?
    This game will certainly be popular, but if this game is supposed to have the same appeal as Pokémon once had outside Japan then it would have to be popular with kids from all types and cultures. (P.s: i am not saying you said that yokai watch will have the same appeal, i'm talking to the ppl who said it would kill pokemon)

    Okay I got to put my two cents here. First of all, the beginning of the trailer shows the kid using...a vending machine. WTF! Also, they talk normal English. And everything the Yokai do is based off a watch. Yeah, this is so lame. Also, wait...the lens thing to "catch" Yokai...is that based off the watch too? Yeah probably. But remember, we've dealt with other games/animes like this too. Remember Yu-gi-oh? Bakugan? Bayblade? Monster Rancher? Even Digimon to a small extent? Pokémon is still strong, and it will remain strong no matter what game/anime it's put up against. Not to mention Pokémon is officially Nintendo licensed, so it's a classic now nearing...20 years? Yup, no need to grieve here.
    I will restart Pokemon Alpha Sapphire soon. Power to the Treeckos.

    I will also restart Pokémon Blue very soon.

    Planned Blue Team:
    Venusaur
    Vaporeon
    Rapidash
    Raichu
    Sandslash
    Butterfree

    So after Maker Wii doesn't get a good game until November and 3DS line up is eww. Can't believe they left out Senran Kagura 2, the best thing coming out for it until Mystery dungeon

    Sorry but Senran Kagura really isn't considered a high profile release.

    That's a first party title, though.

    I highly doubt that Nintendo would endorse Senran Kagura 2 of all things given the initial first impressions that game can give.

    I have to imagine Chibirobo is a big pet project by someone at nintendo because the continued existence of it & skip ltd are, while appreciated and i love them, somewhat baffling
    and chibi is getting an amiibo!

    Oh hey wait, I just noticed that Europe is getting Girls Mode 3 ("New Style Boutqiue 2" for them)

    Neat, I'm guessing that will be an early 2016 title for the americas.
    Come onnnn Rhythm Heaven, you're up next

    But Fatal Frame is on there, and that's not.

    Srs, Nintendo should be promoting this. All Senran games are pushing 150k+ sales. The stigma just makes the game sell more. That's what happened with Burst in the US when sites started hating on it.

    Nintendo co-owns the rights to Fatal Frame.

    Forget it, Jb. Your titty game will never be recognized by Nintendo. Best to accept it now.
