Yo-kai Watch Land is a mobile game developed and published by Level-5's western branch LEVEL-5 abby. The game was released in North America on January 3, 2016 and in Europe somewhere during the Spring of 2016 for the iOS and Android.
After over a year without updates due to Hasbro no longer manufacturing Yo-kai Watch merchandise in North America, in December 2018, it was announced that the app would be taken off app stores on December 31, 2018.

The player can scan Hasbro's new Yo-kai Watch toys to see them come alive on screen. The player can scan their QR code that is on the back of the medals to add them to their collection, which they can use to play minigames. The player can also take pictures of their collected Yo-kai.
The player can play minigames to level up and complete challenges with thei Yo-kai. This give the player experience points, which in turn will level the Yo-kai up. When the player levels up, they will unlock more minigames and stickers, which can be used in the photo booth.
This minigame can only be played when the Yo-kai the player choose is of the Tribe of the day. In the Bucket Challenge the player can play as Whisper and collect falling Crank-a-kai coins in a bucket. In order to play, the player also have to collect bucket in the minigame of their choice.
In this minigame, Robonyan wants a chocobar, but is left with none. The player must collect Crank-a-kai coins and Cacao Beans, as well avoiding bombs and cat arms to fill a Choco Meter, so the player can win as many points as possible.
In this minigame, Whisper finds a capsule machine and wants to have a capsule ball, but it didn't make it into the hole. The player must collect Crank-a-kai coins, as well as getting checkpoints for the timer, so the player can win as many points as possible.
This minigame is basically pinball, but the player can control the ball which in fact is a Yo-kai Medal, by tilting the device and swiping. The player must get many points as possible.
- The Yo-kai Watch Land app shares similarities to the Yo-kai Pad toy in Japan as both scans medals, view Yo-kai data, and play with apps. However, the Yo-kai Pad toy features more useful apps but cannot take photos or update itself and requires batteries. This was probably done to save money for Hasbro and appeal to the mobile market.
