The game is to be released by Sega.
Sega in the west will be the publisher or Demon Slayer(Kimetsu No Yaiba): The Hinokami Chronicles, a new game inspired by the fan-favorite franchise, set to be released soon this October. Featuring the original voice cast from both the English and the Japanese dub of the anime, the new game retells the main events of the franchise, as revealed by the announcement trailer.
The reveal trailer shows us the mix of interactive storytelling and arena battles developer, CyberConnect is known for. The studio previously worked on the hack series, as well as several Naruto games and Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. That means CyberConnect is more than prepared to tackle Demon Slayer and bring the best of the cell-shaded action we are used to in their anime games. Besides a story mode in which the player will have to face some of the franchise’s most iconic demons, The Hinokami Chronicles will also allow two players to face themselves in the arena battles, both locally and online which doesn’t happen in the anime but it’s a game anyways.
Here’s the official synopsis for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles.
“It is the Taisho Period in Japan. Tanjiro, a kindhearted boy who sells charcoal for a living, finds his family slaughtered by a demon. To make matters worse, his younger sister Nezuko, the sole survivor, has been transformed into a demon herself. Though devastated by this grim reality, Tanjiro resolves to become a “demon slayer” so that he can turn his sister back into a human and kill the demon that massacred his family.”
