Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - The Hinokami Chronicles Comes to Switch in June

Anime adaptation Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - The Hinokami Chronicles will come to Nintendo Switch on June 10.

The arena-based fighting game will arrive on Switch alongside all the post-release content that's hit previous editions – including 6 new characters, online missions, and balance changes.

A physical edition of the game is available to pre-order now, which comes with a bonus character unlock key for Kimetsu Academy Tanjiro Kamado.

Teh fighting game follows the same plot as the anime and manga it's based on, following Tanjiro and Nezuko Kamado after their family are killed by demons, each on a path for revenge, and a cure for a demon curse placed on Nezuko.

When it arrived on other formats last year, we awarded The Hinokami Chronicles a 7/10 review, calling it "a fighter that balances depth and accessibility well, but it’s hamstrung by an inconsistent story mode and a slim roster."
