Demon Slayer Hits the Gaming Scene

The 3D fighting game, being developed by CyberConnect2 and Published by Sega and Aniplex, holds the moniker The Hinokami Chronicles and looks to bring back the cast of Demon Slayer in their respective roles from the English dub of the anime. The game’s solo mode will revisit the events of the anime series starting from the Tanjiro Kamado, Unwavering Resolve Arc all the way to the recently released film The Mugen Train Arc and will have the player switching between characters based on where they are in the story. The characters by the way seem to have had a far amount of thought put into there designs. For example, Tanjiro will be easy for players to control while only having a basic skillset while Zenitsu focuses on speed and Inosuke on strength. All of which match there anime and manga counterparts perfectly.

Standard to most shounen action games, The Hinokami Chronicles will also feature a versus mode were players can battle each other by forming a team of two fighters from a roster of 18 characters, 12 of which come from the main anime and the other six from the spinoff show Chuukou Ikkan!! Kimetsu Gakuen Monogatari. Assuming all characters will be as uniquely, this would allow for a wide verity of playstyles, let the players play mix and match with different groups, lending itself to competitive play quit well. So far the only confirmed roster members include Tanjiro, Zenitsu, Inosuke and Nezuko.

Demon Slayer:Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles is set to release in Japan on October 14, 2021 and world wide October 15, 2021, because of course it comes out in Japan one day earlier.
