This gameplay video allows us to see that the fights will be in teams of two, with one character in support, while the clashes are will do in closed arenas around a circular point. Like an air of deja vu? It’s not wrong, but it must be said that the Naruto Ninja Storm formula adapts perfectly to Demon Slayer, knowing that the animations seem even more intense and the pace of play even more frenetic than before. While waiting to learn more, we know that this Demon Slayer offer a Story mode, with the possibility of playing the main hero, the young Tanjiro. The release of this Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba: Hinokami Keppuutan is expected in 2021 on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S and Xbox One.
As a reminder, Demon Slayer is 120 million manga sold in Japan alone, the biggest success of 2019 and 2020, while the animated film became the biggest hit at the Japanese box office, since it managed to dethrone Spirited Away by Hayao Miyazaki, installed since 2001. In December 2020, sales around the franchise reportedly generated at least 270 billion yen ($ 2.6 billion) in profits in Japan.
Biiim, the first gameplay video for DEMON’S SLAYER by CyberConnect2. We can feel the Naruto Ninja Storm legacy in power, but at least we are far from the gunshot rendering of DBZ Kakarot. Clearly, it was the B team that took charge of the game. @JeuxActu pic.twitter.com/VxNSyLKqSN
