It was revealed that the CyberConnect2 developed Demon Slayer video game, which is known for its work on Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot and the Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm series, will be coming out on more consoles than just the previously announced PlayStation 4. Kimetsu no Yaiba: Hinokami Kepputan will further be released on the Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam and is still scheduled for 2021.
The game will let players “relive” the story of the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba TV anime series through the video game medium. It’ll also feature a versus mode where players can pit characters from the anime series against each other both online and offline.
More screenshots from the game were further released:
