Demon Slayer in a nutshell
The story is set in the Japanese Taisho period. Tanjiro, a good-hearted boy who sells charcoal for a living, loses his family to a demon. To make matters worse, his younger sister Nezuko, the lone survivor of the massacre, was turned into a demon herself.
Devastated, Tanjiro decides to take his fate into his own hands. He becomes a “demon slayer” to turn his sister back into a human and kill the demon that slaughtered his family.
Like the “Naruto Ninja Storm” series, the game is a 3D arena flogger. In story mode you experience the story of the anime. It spans the arches from Tanjiro Kamado, Unwavering Resolve to Mugen Train.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles is available for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, and Xbox One in stores and digitally on Steam. There are German subtitles, the voice output is available in Japanese and English. You can order the game from Amazon*. You can find our test here.
