Sega dates Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - Hinokami Keppuutan
The arena fighter is set to bring the popular anime west in just a few short months.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - Hinokami Keppuutan is set to arrive in North America and Europe on October 15,2021, courtesy of Sega, the publisher announced today in a press release. Developed by frequent Bandai Namco collaborator CyberConnect2, the arena fighter is based on the anime of the same name.
Set in the Taisho Period in Japan, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - Hinokami Keppuutan features a kindhearted young charcoal salesman named Tanjiro, who faces grievous loss at the hands (or claws?) of demons. They slaughtered most of his family, his sister aside, and even her they turned into a demon who could really do with a return to her former human self.
According to the press release, the game depicts memorable moments of "Tanjiro Kamado, Unwavering Resolve Arc" and "Mugen Train Arc." That probably means something to you if you're a huge fan of the animated work.
In the game, players should look forward to:
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - Hinokami Keppuutan is presently available for pre-order on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X in two digital editions, with Steam pre-orders to follow shortly. If you purchase the Digital Deluxe edition, you can access the game two days early, on October 13.
One thing worth mentioning is that a variety of extras included as part of the Digital Deluxe edition appear to be exclusive to PlayStation and PC hardware, including 13 avatars and a static theme. The "limited-time Launch Edition" of the Digital Edition also includes character unlocks for Giyu Tomioka and Shinobu Kocho that apparently won't be available when you don't purchase in advance.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - Hinokami Keppuutan will retail for $59.99 when you buy the digital or physical Standard edition, or $69.99 if you decide to spoil yourself with the Digital Deluxe edition.
