Kimetsu no Yaiba The Hinokami Chronicles Release Date

The Kimetsu no Yaiba The Hinokami Chronicles Release Date is imminent - 15th of October for PC and consoles - go tell your parents...

Big news for Demon Slayer fans: Kimetsu no Yaiba The Hinokami Chronicles is out, officially, tomorrow on PC and consoles.

Starting the morning with an argument with a die-hard Demon Slayer fan who’s been saving her pocket money for ‘the big day’, I informed her that the game is out tomorrow and that those who pre-ordered the Digital Deluxe Edition can play it early.

Following on from the movie Mugen Train, and conveniently placed in time for series two of Demon SlayerKimetsu no Yaiba The Hinokami Chronicles is a beat ’em up tie-in with solo, local multiplayer and online modes, choosing some of the key characters.

Key features include:

  • Exhilarating Arena Battles – Master the multitude of spectacular skills of a wide roster of characters from the anime and the series’ official spinoff, including Tanjiro and Nezuko, to overcome challengers in head-to-head battle, locally and online.
  • Moving Drama – Take up the sword as Tanjiro Kamado and guide his journey to become a Demon Slayer and turn his sister Nezuko back into a human.
  • Thrilling Boss Battles – Action and drama reach their peak in specially designed battles against powerful demons that will test Tanjiro’s mettle.
  • Original Anime Voice Cast – The original English and Japanese casts of the anime return to bring their authentic portrayals to the game.

To reinforce my statement that it’s out tomorrow, I saw a couple of reviews already, and it seems very much a fan service more than anything, but we’ll find out tomorrow.

Kimetsu no Yaiba The Hinokami Chronicles will be available for PS4/5, Xbox One/Series X/S and Steam from tomorrow, unless you buy the digital one now as there are some bonuses only available until launch.
