Sega Asia announced plans to publish the CyberConnect2 action-fighter Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba The Hinokami Chronicles in Asia on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X, and PC-via Steam in 2021.
The publisher confirms this release will feature English localization. However, a North American or European publisher has not been confirmed. Still, it’s only a matter of time at this point, and it could be Sega handling the global release, but Asia decided to announce first. Only time will tell.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba The Hinokami Chronicles features a solo-story campaign where players will follow Tanjuro through the story from the anime adaptation of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. His sister, Nezuko, has become a demon, and he must try to turn her back into a human.
Further, players can also play in a versus mode where you can choose characters from the anime, including Tanjiro and Nezuko, and fight in online or offline modes. The battle system has been developed to be simple and stylish for all fans to enjoy.
