Avenge your family – Demon Slayer – Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles coming this fall

One of the unspoken rules in the world of pop culture: every breakout anime must always receive a video game to go along with it. In the case of Demon Slayer, this one looks pretty good so far, featuring unique boss battles, a gripping storyline straight from the anime and movie, and a great art style. Demon Slayer – Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles releases October 15 later this year for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Steam. Additionally, those who pre-order the game will be able to start playing on October 13, 2021, two days early.

The game is described as an arena fighter, and it looks similar to the Legend of Korra game from a few years back, only far more polished and fun-looking. Particle effects and drama are on full display in the story trailer, but check it out for yourself:
