On Saturday, October 15th, fans of the popular Yo-Kai Watch animated TV series will be able to attend a special, one day event at cinemas across the country. The events of the movie tie-in with the upcoming Yo-Kai Watch 2, sending Nate back in time to team up with his grandfather and save the world from an evil Yo-kai. The movie’s release in Japan was so successful that it set box office records for advance ticket sales, and became the highest grossing Japanese film of 2015.

Fans of Yo-Kai Watch won’t just be treated to the movie at the event, however. Attendees will also receive a special medal, featuring the heroic Yo-kai that stars in the movie, Hovernyan! This Hovernyan medal will work with Hasbro’s Yo-Kai Watch Model Zero Toy, and will unlock special content in Yo-Kai Watch 2 when players scan the QR code on its back.

Yo-Kai Watch: The Movie Event is being sponsored by Fathom Events. Visit the event’s page on their website at the link above and click “Buy Tickets” to see if any cinemas near you are hosting an event!
