IT MAY SEEM THAT DEMON SLAYER: KIMETSU NO YAIBA – HINOKAMI KEPPUTAN, ORIGINALLY PLANNED ONLY FOR PS4, WILL COME TO OTHER SYSTEMS
Originally, the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – Hinokami Kepputan game was promoted as a PlayStation 4 exclusive.
That was when it was announced in March 2020, and it was thought that it would not reach other platforms. However, it seems that plans have changed.
A new report from Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed that it will be coming to more hardware. Among them is the successor to this console, the PlayStation 5.
DEMON SLAYER’S GAME: KIMETSU NO YAIBA WILL REACH OTHER SYSTEMS
The other two are the Xbox One and PC via Steam. At least as far as the original PS4 is concerned, it will be out in 2021 in Japan. In this publication it was confirmed that the game will have a story mode or Story Mode.
This this one will be able to enjoy the plot of the anime of ufotable. Likewise, it will have a Tag Battle Mode. In this one it will be possible to control various characters in the series using simple controls. The latter has not been well received.
What happens is that many complain is that most companies only take advantage of action manga and anime to make brawler or arena style games.
That is, they only focus on battles, and leave aside the possibility of creating something more ambitious. So the mention of ‘simple controls’ suggests a title that only builds on the success of the Demon Slayer franchise: Kimetsu no Yaiba. Certainly that is very possible.
THE APPEARANCE OF SEVERAL CHARACTERS FROM THE SERIES IS CONFIRMED
This game is developed by CyberConnect2, which already has extensive experience working with titles from the Naruto series. As for the publication, it falls to Aniplex, which is a division of Sony Music focused on anime and music in the country of the Rising Sun.
Through a scanned page of the magazine it was confirmed that in addition to Tanjirou Kamado, his sister Nezuko will appear in the game, as well as Zenitsu Agatsuma and Inosuke Hashibira.
Something that has also been pointed out from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – Hinokami Kepputan is ‘where is the version for Nintendo Switch?’.
With how well the console is doing in sales in the Far East, it doesn’t seem like a good idea to ignore it. Especially since the PS4 is out, the PS5 is just taking off and the Xbox One … well, we don’t even talk.
Although perhaps Aniplex is thinking that the game will sell more in the West than in its home country.
