As part of the regular PlayStation Underground column on the official PlayStation YouTube channel, a 16-minute gameplay video of the action anime Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles debuted.
Recall, “Demon Slayer” tells the story of a kind-hearted boy Tanjiro Kamado, whose family was killed, and Nezuko’s sister turned into a demon. The young hero decides to challenge the monsters and turn Nezuko back into a human.
The unveiled video begins with a snippet from the first chapter of the story mode: the protagonist has just finished training and proceeded to the final test, which will allow the hero to call himself a demon hunter.
As part of the PlayStation Underground, they showed a fight with ordinary monsters, as well as a meeting with a boss. The players did not finish the battle and switched to the Versus mode with battles in the “2 on 2” format.
At the start of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles in Versus, it will be possible to confront each other only people (they promise 18 characters), and after the release, demons will be added to the project.
The first two will be Rui from “Mount Natagumo” and Akaza from “The Endless Train”. The timing of the release of additional fighters has not been specified, but a total of six are planned.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles will go on sale on October 15 this year for PC (Steam), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S. The project is released on the international market by Sega, specifically in Japanese – Aniplex.
