The Yo-kai Watch Demo (体験版 - 妖怪ウォッチ Taikenhan - Yōkai U~otchi, literally meaning: "Trial Version - Yo-kai Watch") is the official demo of the Yo-kai Watch released through the Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo 3DS developed and published by Level-5. The demo contains the story of Nathan Adams and Template:Y trying to find three Yo-kai causing troubles on a request by a Template:Y. The demo was published for play in Japan on July 3, 2013, in North America on October 22, 2015[1], in Australia and New Zealand on November 27, 2015[2] and in Europe on March 6, 2016 after a Nintendo Direct presentation.



The story starts in Springdale at the home of Nathan, were Whisper asks Nathan to go look for some Yo-kai. Nathan responds to Whisper by asking him "where" and "how" he is supposed to find Yo-kai, with Whisper respinding by saying that Yo-kai can be found all around Nathan and that they should go outside. Once outside, a young lass that appears to be a student walks towards Nathan and Whisper and asks them that she has a favor to ask them. Nathan asks the young lass how he can help her and she explains to Nathan that there are some bad Yo-kai causing trouble in Springdale and that Nathan should track them down and take care of them. Reluctantly, Nathan agrees and talks with Whisper about what he should do. Whisper reminds Nathan that he is the owner of the Yo-kai Watch, meaning that only Nathan can find them. Whisper assures Nathan that it needs no pressure because he will help Nathan to fullfill the request of the young lass. Reassured with confidence, Nathan happily agrees to help out the young lass which she thanked Nathan in return. She further explains to Nathan that there are three Yo-kai that are causing trouble in Springdale, as well explaining how to find them and that Nathan should find the last one on it's own. Lastly, she tells Nathan that if all three Yo-kai are gone, he should come and see her again.
