Demon Slayer Game Gets Release on PS5, Xbox One, Steam in Addition to PS4
The official website for the video game Kimetsu no Yaiba: Hinokami Keppūtan announced on Monday that, in addition to the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Steam, the game will also be released on Xbox Series X and S. The “demon-killing competitive action” game is still slated to debut this year.
The Demon Slayer game has a story mode in the game that will allow fans to relive the story of the first TV anime. A battle mode will allow players to play as their favorite characters. In order to enhance the consistency of the title, Aniplex is delaying the release of a separate Kimetsu no Yaiba: Keppū Kengeki Royale (Demon Slayer: Blood-Stench Blade Royale) smartphone game indefinitely.
The Demon Slayer game was formerly expected to debut in 2020. The free-to-play “asymmetrical survival action game” smartphone will pit teams of demon slayers and demons against each other, with players using different abilities and characters to battle in story settings. In February 2016, Koyoharu Gotouge released Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba in Weekly Shonen Jump and finished it on May 18. The manga is distributed online and in print by Viz Media in English.
In April 2019, the television anime adaptation of the manga debuted, and it ran for 26 minutes. On 16 October, the Demon Slayer-Kimetsu no Yaiba-The Movie: Mugen Train anime film was launched. Early this year, Funimation and Aniplex of America will be showing the film in theaters in North America.
