The first video game adaptation of the popular and thrilling Demon Slayer series, which has already captivated millions worldwide, is out now.
Sega and Cyberconnect2 announced today that Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles has gone into early access for those who bought the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
A recreation that anime fans will love
If there’s one thing we can say about CyberConnect2’s anime-based games, it’s that the majority of them have very clear ideas and an unmistakable stamp: exquisite cel-shaded graphics, jaw-dropping video sequences, unhealthy respect for the original material, and gameplay that’s too simple and straightforward to be pushed to the background.
In this new Sega release, we are presented with a new 3D fighting game in which we may freely travel through the situations while facing our opponents and putting a series of easy combinations and strong techniques into practice. Maintaining an aesthetic that is extremely close to manga and anime, this title is one of the most authentic recreations to date.
As you might expect from such a restricted title, the controls are extremely easy mechanically speaking, as we will only have three basic combinations of strikes that we may extend and chain, adding special techniques in between and calling our partner to deliver an aid attack.
More playable demons and post-launch performance mode
As you may have heard from the game’s announcement back in August, you can expect new playable demons to be introduced to the game roster in a series of three distinct free game updates, among other things.
Additionally, as part of a free post-launch update, the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Steam versions of the game will include a 60FPS performance mode with 60FPS gameplay and 30FPS cutscenes.
The Digital Deluxe Edition is available now. Meanwhile, the Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles standard edition is currently available for pre-order on the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. The standard edition is out on Friday.
