Today Sega had another reveal in store for the upcoming action game Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles.

Today Sega had another reveal in store for the upcoming action game Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles, known in Japan as Kimetsu no Yaiba: Hinokami Keppu Tan.

This time around, we get to take a look at the Adventure Mode, which is pretty much what it says on the tin. Specifically, we take a look at the Asakusa arc of the story.

You can watch it below.

In case you missed it so far, here’s what the game offers:

  • Exhilarating Arena Battles – Master the multitude of spectacular skills of a wide roster of characters from the anime, including Tanjiro and Nezuko, to overcome challengers in head-to-head battle, locally and online.
  • Moving Drama – Take up the sword of Tanjiro Kamado and guide his journey to become a Demon Slayer and turn his sister Nezuko back into a human.
  • Thrilling Boss Battles – Action and drama reach their peak in specially designed battles against powerful demons that will test Tanjiro’s mettle.
  • Original Anime Voice Cast – The original English and Japanese casts of the anime return to bring their authentic portrayals to the game.
