SEGA announced that Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles is coming to the Nintendo Switch in Asia on June 9, 2022.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is a manga masterpiece by Koyoharu Gotoge and published by Shueisha Jump Comics, selling over 150 million copies. The story follows Tanjiro Kamado, a boy whose family is slaughtered by a demon while his sister, Nezuko, is turned into one herself. Tanjiro Kamado joins the Demon Slayer Corps in the hopes of finding a way to turn his sister back into a human. This adventure exploded in popularity not only in Japan but also around the world, as it portrayed the heartrending ties between humans and demons and a ghastly swashbuckler while having moments of comic relief.

Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles is a video game based on the animated series that premiered in April 2019 and has shipped over 1.6 million units* globally since its release on other platforms in October 2021. The game features two modes that allow you to dive into the world of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.
