Demon Slayer made some big waves among anime fans thanks to a gorgeously-produced TV series back in 2019, and the series keeps exploding in popularity. The Mugen Train film is now the highest-grossing movie in Japan’s history, and the original manga keeps growing, too. Naturally, a game wouldn’t be far behind, and the folks at CyberConnect2 are bringing us pretty much the exact adaptation you’d expect.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – Hinokami Keppuutan, as the full title goes, follows the formula of previous CyberConnect2 anime games like the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm series. It’s an arena fighter where you select a team of familiar characters from the show and brawl with your opponents in the traditional style.
In a new bit of gameplay footage, you can see what Hinokami Keppuutan looks like for yourself. It does an impressive job of recreating the anime’s unique visual style and attack effects – the ultimate moves are especially impressive – though you shouldn’t expect too many surprises compared with CyberConnect2’s previous work.
