Based on the Japanese manga by Koyoharu, Season one of Demon Slayer took the anime world by storm back in 2019. Alongside the news that Season two of the series is expected to release in the Fall of 2021, fans are also looking forward to a Demon Slayer video game that is currently in development.

Without further ado, let’s check out everything we know about the upcoming Demon Slayer title.

Does the Demon Slayer game have a release date yet?

Unfortunately, as of yet, we still don’t have an exact date release date for the Demon Slayer game. However, according to Crunchyroll, the title is still scheduled to launch at some point in 2021.

Although it’s frustrating CyberConnect2 hasn’t pinpointed a specific date just yet, it’s great news to hear that fans can expect to get their hands on the game before the end of the year. Of course, take this projection with a pinch of salt as there’s always a chance the title is delayed.

Demon Slayer game trailers and screenshots

At this point in time, CyberConnect2 has only released a single trailer for the title and it shows very little gameplay. However, it has successfully got fans hyped for the game’s release.

Showcasing further, epic fighting scenes, and a fantastic graphic style that looks right out of the anime show, fans of both the show and manga series are undoubtedly on tenterhooks for further information.

Demon Slayer platforms

Although Demon Slayer was only initially set to release on the PlayStation 4, that’s now changed and the title will be arriving on multiple platforms.

Fans can expect the Demon Slayer game to arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S/X, and PC via Steam.

Demon Slayer gameplay

As we haven’t received a gameplay trailer for the title just yet, it’s difficult to predict exactly what kind of gameplay Demon Slayer will offer players.

However, the developer of the game, CyberConnect2, is responsible for titles such as Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm. From looking at these titles, we can expect the developers to create an impactful and impressive combat system.

There’s no doubt they’ll include a bunch of the character’s signature moves from the anime and deliver the quality gameplay experience fans are expecting. Just looking at the screenshots above, you can tell a lot of work has gone into the combat animations and abilities.
