Kimetsu no Yaiba, or Demon Slayer is one of the biggest successes in recent years in anime. It became such a massive hit that it totally conquered even the American comic market. Becoming not only one of the most popular shows, but also one of the most popular manga, and even comics, available at the moment. And by checking it out for just a moment, it’s easy to tell why it became such a huge success. So naturally, it was only a matter of time before it made its incursion into the video game world, and it’s finally coming with Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - The Hinokami Chronicles.

Since the anime is so popular not only because of the really incredible action scenes but also because of the incredible plot and development, the game has a heavyweight on its shoulders. So, what is the game about? Does it cover the same things we've seen in the anime already? Will it go further on into the story and give us a deeper look into the lore and story of Demon Slayer? Well, let's talk about that.

About the game

Anime games have always struggled with creating original content, so most of them opt for adapting the anime story into different gameplay styles, and that is the case with The Hinokami Chronicles. In the same way as the anime, Tanjiro is the big protagonist here, both in the story and in the gameplay.

We’ll get to play the story covered up until the Midnight Train arc, so there really isn’t any spoiler if you’re up to date with the animated series and the movie. But you’ll finally be able to experience the story by your own hand as you control Tanjiro and other characters to recreate the anime.

A step in the right direction

It is uncertain how long Demon Slayer will be, but this game seems to definitely be a big step in the right direction for future game adaptations of the show. Not only does it perfectly recreate the art style of the game, but it isn't’ even afraid to go into long dialogues and cutscenes to make sure the story is rightfully told.

The gameplay is a 3D arena fighter a lot like we’ve seen in many other anime games like the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm games so many times in the past. CyberConnect2 really did outshine themselves when developing this title.

Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles is a great way for the show to get into the video game world. But there’s still room for improvement. The exploration mode is pretty linear and there isn’t much to do in there, aside from going from point A to B, and interacting with a few NPCs.

The combat is incredibly simple, and there's not much variation in it, however, you can produce some incredible fight in VS mode. Thanks to the incredible visuals, the game is a loyal recreation of the anime, all the iconic movements and moments are here, and they really do feel as powerful, if not even better.

8.5

The game is really good, especially if you’re a fan of the show, it just needs a little improvement, but this is a title you can’t miss if you like anime.

Pros:

  • Beautiful art
  • Excellent story
  • Loyal Recreation of the original content
  • Great adaptation
  • Lots of collectibles and unlockables

Cons:

  • Combats are too simple
  • Linear exploration mode
