Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles For Nintendo Switch Announced for The West As Well

The western arm of Sega followed up with its own announcement of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles For Nintendo Switch.

Following the announcement for Japan and Asia earlier this morning, the western arm of Sega followed up with its own announcement of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles For Nintendo Switch.

Players in North America and Europe won’t have to wait long to play the game on Switch compared to their brethren in Asia, as it’ll launch in the west on June 10, one day after the other regions.

The Switch version will come with all the playable demons (Rui, AkazaSusamaru, YahabaYushiro, and Tamayo) released with post-launch updates on other platforms.

A physical release will also be available including a Kimetsu Academy Character Unlock Key for Tanjiro Kamado for those who pre-order.

If you’re unfamiliar with the game, here’s an official description of what it offers and a gallery of official screenshots.

It is the Taisho Period in Japan. Tanjiro, a kindhearted boy who sells charcoal for a living, finds his family slaughtered by a demon. To make matters worse, his younger sister Nezuko, the sole survivor, has been transformed into a demon herself. Though devastated by this grim reality, Tanjiro resolves to become a “demon slayer” so that he can turn his sister back into a human and kill the demon that massacred his family.

A sorrowful tale of siblings in which the fates of humans and demons intertwine… begins now!

  • Exhilarating Arena Battles – Master the multitude of spectacular skills of a wide roster of characters from the anime and the series’ official spinoff, including Tanjiro and Nezuko, to overcome challengers in head-to-head battle, locally and online.
  • Moving Drama – Take up the sword as 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 voice casts of the anime return to bring their authentic portrayals to the game.
