You're a Demon Slayer fan? You've wanted to play a Demon Slayer game for years? Well, now you will get that chance. The famous manga turned anime turned full length movie Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is now becoming a video game too. See everything we know on the release date, platforms and game modes.

Demon Slayer, or Kimetsu no Yaiba, has been immensely successful in Japan since the launch of the manga in 2016. In the following years, the franchise extended into anime and feature film, breaking Japanese sales records left and right. Koyoharu Gotouge's manga is now preparing to take on another field of media - video gaming.

A Demon Slayer video game has been on the cards for more than a year and something was supposed to pop off during 2020 but a bunch of delays finally saw the end of that initial project. A whole different idea is being pitched to fans now.

According to the schedule, a Demon Slayer video game should hit the shelves in late 2021. A set release date hasn't been given yet. The title of that game would be Kimetsu no Yaiba: Hinokami Keppūtan and it will be available on all major platforms - PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. The only trick is that Kimetsu no Yaiba: Hinokami Keppūtan will only be released in Japan. A worldwide release at some point is not out of the question, but there isn't any clear info on that.

There is something to say on the nature of the game. There will be a single player campaign based on the first season of the Demon Slayer anime and a 2v2 mode where you can duel against the AI or real players.

Plenty to be excited about if you're into slaying demons.
