Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles, the game inspired by the popular anime, is officially getting a Western release. Sega also announced different versions of the game along with preorder goodies.
“Become a blade that destroys demons!” The fighting game follows the same story line as the anime and film, Mugen Train. Fighting his way through a series of duels against demons and other familiar faces, Tanjiro is on a mission to turn his demon sister Nezuko back into a human.
Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles can also be enjoyed with a friend. As the description reads:
In Versus Mode, characters from the anime, including Tanjiro and Nezuko, can be freely matched against each another in a one-versus-one setting with up to two players online or offline! Enjoy this simple but exhilarating battle system, and become the greatest demon slayer you can!”
As shown in both announcement trailers, the English voice cast will be reprising their roles for the game.
Sega also announced a Digital and Digital Deluxe version of Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles. Priced at $69.99, preordering these editions allow players early access to the game and a slew of cosmetic goodies. PlayStation and Steam players who preorder the Digital Deluxe Edition will also receive 13 avatars of characters from the series. A physical edition will also be available for $59.99.
