After slaying the blockbuster in Japan, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba sets the stage in video games. Koyoharu Gotoge’s masterpiece that broke records and became the highest-grossing film in the world also has games set this year and the next. The two games are coming in for mobile and PS4 players.
Demon Slayer: Keppü Kengeki Royale
Yes, you read that right. Royale. This is a mobile game that will pin the Demon Slayer Corps against human eating Demons in a fight for survival. It is a battle-type survival action mobile set in the same world as the anime. This mobile game is currently open for Japanese pre-registration since May 14, 2020.
Its official Twitter account ran a poll on its players on which side they want to be on. 53.8% wants to be Demon Slayers, 8.8% wants to be Demons, 34.5% wants to play both, and 2.8% are still undecided. Also, according to its official website, the game is set to release in 2020 in Japan. There is no update yet, as the game’s last tweet was on May 16, 2020. Let us hope that the game is still underway and is just delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kimetsu no Yaiba: Hinokami Keppütan
This game is pretty straight forward and is available to PlayStation 4 fans of the anime and manga. It will follow the story of the anime, as shown in the trailer below. For those who are having a hard time understanding Japanese, Tanjiro starts by talking to himself and saying that he will save Nezuko and bring her back to her human form. He also said he would not leave her alone and don’t want any more victims. Currently, the game’s official trailer is only available in Japan, so we searched for other uploaded videos.
CyberConnect2 is the developer of the Demon Slayer: Hinokami Keppütan game with Aniplex as its publisher. Its genre is “Demon Killing Battle Action” and is set to be released next year, 2021.
