Also revealed was a GORGEOUS new visual for the game, illustrated by none other than ufotable (Fate/Zero, God Eater), producers of the anime series and film.
The upcoming action game promises “demon-killing competitive” gameplay, with players reliving the anime series. There’s also a battle mode, where players can take on each other as Tanjiro, Nezuko, Inosuke, Zenitsu and the like.
It’s developed by the team at CyberConnect2, known for their work on games like Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, Asura’s Wrath and the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja series. Kimetsu no Yaiba: Hinokami Kepputan is set to be released later this year in Japan.
