In a move to bolster brand exposure and reach, Paris-based distributor Viz Media Europe will stream the second season of Yo-Kai Watch for free on YouTube Kids in the UK beginning today.
The distributor will roll out 26 new episodes during the month of June, where a playlist of seven episodes will be uploaded to the Google-owned content platform on a weekly basis.
A co-pro from Dentsu, Level-5 and TV Tokyo, the Disney XD series follows an average boy named Nate who has a special watch giving him the ability to discover beings called Yo-Kai, creating problem’s in his everyday life. The second season, which made its linear TV premiere in August 2016, continues on his adventures and introduces new Yo-Kai characters.
Life in the digital realm isn’t foreign to the Yo-Kai Watch brand. The IP recently released a new app called Yo-Kai Watch Wibble Wobble, as well as an all-new Nintendo game in April.
