Ready to step into the shoes of the butterfly-clad Hashira with a pleasant demeanor and penchant for poison? The latest Weekly Shonen Jump magazine has revealed that Shinobu Kocho is joining the cast of the upcoming Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba video game!
The game, developed by CyberConnect2 (Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot), will include a “Solo Play Mode” that allows players to relive the first 26 episodes of the anime, as well as a “Versus Mode,” where fans can duke it out as their favorites against each other.
The stacked playable roster for the game (so far) includes Tanjiro, Nezuko, Zenitsu, Inosuke, Giyu, Urokodaki, Sabito and Makomo. And now Shinobu.
Kimetsu no Yaiba: Hinokami Keppūtan drops on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC (via Steam) later this year in Japan.
And if that wasn’t enough Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba for you, the anime’s film continues to break records! Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train is officially the third-highest grossing anime film of all time in the United States.
You can snag a ticket now to watch it, with a digital release on Apple TV, Microsoft Store, Vudu, Google Play*, PlayStation Store, and Amazon set for June. And if you want to catch up on the series (or watch the special episodes!), you can do it all right here on Funimation.
