Today Aniplex released the first trailer and screenshots for both its upcoming Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba games revealed a few days ago.
First of all, we take a look at Kaimetsu no Yaiba: Hinokami Keppu Tan, which is coming to PS4 in 2021.
First and foremost, we learn that the game is in development at CyberConnect2, which you probably know for its recent work on Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot and more.
The developer has been teasing a brand new anime game, and looks like this is it.
As it often happens with Aniplex, the trailer and a second video focusing on development are geoblocked outside of Japan. Luckily YouTube users Daisuki AnimeTV and World’s Weakest Hunter uploaded versions visible in the west. You can watch them below alongside the first screenshots.
The genre of the PS4 game is “demon-slaying action” and the story follows that of the anime, with Tanjiro Kamado who becomes a demon-slayer to protect the people and his sister Nezuko, who has become a demon herself.
Wew also get a trailer and screenshots for the mobile game titled “Kaimetsu no Yaiba: Keppu Kengeki Royale,” which is coming to iOS and Android in 2020.
Strangely, the trailer for this one can be viewed outside of Japan. You can watch it below together with screenshots.
The mobile game is an “asymmetric battle survival action” which splits players between two teams, demon hunters and man-eating demons, on a map that recreates the world of the anime.
