Yo-kai Watch Blasters 2: Secret Treasure of the Legendary Banbarayar (Japanese: 妖怪ウォッチバスターズ2 秘宝伝説バンバラヤー Yōkai Wotchi Basutāzu Tsū: Hihō Densetsu Banbarayā), more simply known as just "Yo-kai Watch Blasters 2", is a role-playing strategy game developed for the Nintendo 3DS by Level-5 and is the sequel to Yo-kai Watch Blasters.
Yo-kai Watch Blasters 2: Secret Treasure of the Legendary Banbarayar - Sword (Japanese: 妖怪ウォッチバスターズ2 秘宝伝説バンバラヤー ソード Yōkai Wotchi Basutāzu Tsū: Hihō Densetsu Banbarayā - Sōdo) and Yo-kai Watch Blasters 2: Secret Treasure of the Legendary Banbarayar - Magnum (Japanese: 妖怪ウォッチバスターズ2 秘宝伝説バンバラヤー マグナム Yōkai Wotchi Basutāzu Tsū: Hihō Densetsu Banbarayā - Magunamu) was released in Japan on December 16, 2017.
The game takes place on Karakuri Island to take the treasure of the Pirate King.
Yo-kai Watch Busters 2 was announced in the August 2017 issue of CoroCoro magazine. Only the title was revealed as well it's release window in the winter of 2017. An official website was made, revealing the storyline of the video game and as handheld it would be on.
In the September 2017 issue of CoroCoro magazine, they revealed the game version titles, known as Yo-kai Watch Blasters 2: Sword and Yo-kai Watch Blasters 2: Magnum. Level-5 uploaded an official trailer of the game and more of the game were explained during the Japanese Nintendo Direct of September 14, 2017.
Level-5 announced in November that the games were pushed back from their original December 7 release date to December 16 in order to apply last-minute quality improvements to the games.
Famitsu gave Yo-kai Watch Blasters 2 a 37 out of 40, which is one score higher than the original game.
This game among fans is considered to be the worst of the series, due to the mass amount of glitches present in many places. Examples of this include missing dialogue and models, Yo-kai disappearing after a friend opportunity, and areas where the Yo-kai can get stuck.
As told from the release date and minor delay, several other fans have thought this video game was rushed. That can be proved by some hardly thought-out elements.
Even though multiple patches were made, along with compensation included like free Five-Star Coins, several of the other glitches weren't fixed and new ones were created in the process. All of this likely prevented the game from getting a proper third version update.
- This is the second Yo-kai Watch game to be outsourced by another developer. The first was Yo-kai Watch Dance: Just Dance Special Version, as Just Dance games are developed around Europe, mostly in Ubisoft Paris.
- This is the first and only Yo-kai Watch game to not have a third version, likely due to the low sales and negative reception the game received.
- This is final Yo-kai Watch game and LEVEL-5 title to be developed for the Nintendo 3DS.
