Demon Slayer manga gets game adaptation in October, and it’s coming to PC
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba first appeared as a manga in February 2016, but has since received an anime adaptation and a movie. Set in early 20th century Japan, it follows the adventures of brother and sister duo Tanjiro Kamado and Nezuko Kamado, who are drawn into a secret society called the Demon Slayer Corps which, as you can probably guess, is not a friend of demons, no father. .
This was a well-received adaptation of a well-received manga, and now it’s becoming a game. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles will be released on October 15th via Steam, and in single-player mode the game will follow the events closely. of at least two episodes, namely “Tanjiro Kamado, Unwavering Resolve Arc” and “Mugen Train Arc”, according to the PlayStation Blog.
The game is developed by CyberConnect2 from Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot and Azura’s Wrath – they made a bunch of Naruto games as well. The Dragon Slayer gameplay trailer above shows Tanjiro defeating the ever-mad love of a demon series, but you’ll be able to play with other characters from the series as well. “While Tanjiro possesses basic skills with great controllability, Zenitsu and Inosuke’s fighting styles are different,” reads Toshiyuki Kanazawa from Aniplex. “Zenitsu uses his speed to his advantage, employing his one skill in a way that allows for continuous attacks. Inosuke has high offensive abilities and an impressive charge skill.”
It looks like fighting will really be the name of the game here, so don’t expect an RPG release reminiscent of Kakarot. Still, fans of the anime should be celebrating its October release.
