Can you really call an animated series popular if it doesn’t have a fighting game? After breaking box office records, selling over a million Blu-Rays and DVDs in three days, and leading manga sales, it was only a matter of time before Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba got the video game treatment.
Developed by CyberConnect2, the team behind the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja fight series, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Chronicles of Hinokami is based on the anime adaptation of the excellent manga series by Koyoharu Gotouge. Specifically, the game is based on the first season of the anime and the Mugen train film – the latter of which should also occupy the first seven episodes of the series’ upcoming second season.
If you have played any of the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Games, you know exactly what to expect with it. You’ll play more or less through key moments from the anime, battling various growling demons before taking on the series’ main villains, like the Twelve Kizuki, in big boss battles.
If you want to cool off before you pick up the phone The Chronicles of Hinokami, the first season of the Demon slayer the anime airs on Netflix, Crunchyroll, and Funimation. Its second season is scheduled to air on October 10 and will air on Crunchyroll and Funimation. So wait Demon slayer the fever will be at its peak in the coming weeks.
If you haven’t read the original manga, I highly recommend you take it. I squashed it through Viz’s Shonen Jump service earlier this year and had a blast with it.
If you like your manga to be physical, the final manga volume was released in August, and a full set for the series is slated to release later this year (which is currently on sale for $ 225 through Amazon).
