Yo-Kai Watch, the enormously popular creature-collecting RPG in Japan, launches in November in North America and will also be bundled with Nintendo 2DS for $99, the company announced today.

The bundle will launch the same day as the game, Nov. 6, on Nintendo 3DS. The 2DS is compatible with all 3DS games, it just lacks the 3D-screen capabilities.

Yo-Kai Watch has already sold more than 8 million copies in Japan. The Nintendo 2DS launched in 2013 alongside that year's Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. Nintendo created the 2DS as an entry level, lower-cost version of the 3DS, to make it more accessible to younger players. Yo-Kai Watch is frequently compared to Pokémon, as both a game and an animé series.

For more on Yo-Kai Watch, see Polygon's in-depth preview from New York Comic-Con earlier this month.
