Check out my previous Yo-Kai Watch 2 impressions here!
Apologies in advance for the obvious photographing-the-3DS screenshots. It’s just so much faster than posting to Miiverse and pulling them from there!
Tonight I decided to pick up Yo-Kai Watch 2 again, and while playing this evening, I got a better feel for one of the currencies in the game, Jungle Points.
Like many Japanese children, your character in Yo-Kai Watch 2 is WAY INTO catching bugs. To do this, walk up to a tree (among other places) and if the magnifying glass appears over your character’s head, hit the action button!From here, you’re taken to a close-up of the area:
Basically, an arrow just spins around a gauge and if it lands on the light blue segment, you get a normal version of the bug. If it lands on red, you get a special version (which is more valuable)! You can use an item (which looks like a small tub of coffee creamer) to increase the gauge by one segment per tub.
After catching some bugs, take them to the shop “Jungle Hunter” to sell them!
You can purchase many helpful items at Jungle Hunter with Jungle Points:
