Yo-Kai Watch, the series that’s been a runaway success in Japan, will be arriving in the United States on November 6.

Made by Level-5, the same team that brought us the Professor Layton games and Ni No Kuni, Yo-Kai Watch is an RPG centered around a boy who gains the ability to see Yo-Kai, mischievous spirit-like creatures that live in his hometown. Players progress through the game by befriending, battling, and taming the Yo-Kai.

With its “capture and collect hundreds of  cute creatures” styling, Yo-Kai Watch can easily be compared to the Pokémon games. It plays differently, though—battles take place in real time and need active participation, and the plot consists more of cleansing the main character’s hometown than setting off an epic journey.

Yo-Kai Watch will be the first game from the franchise to be released in the United States, though there are already two out in Japan, with a third on the way. An animated show and bi-monthly manga will also arrive in the United States following the first game’s release.

Yo-Kai Watch releases for the 3DS on November 6.
