Demon Slayer Review

Demon Slayer has been as popular as other anime such as Dragon Ball, Naruto, Hunter x Hunter, and other big names. So much so that it spawned a game of itself for fans to have the opportunity to play as their favorite characters. 

Graphics bring the characters to life, and the game uses both 2D and 3D rendering to the fullest. Making the action-adventure game as playable as ever. The game developer CyberConnect2, is responsible for the very popular Naruto fighting games and Dragonball Z: Kakarot. 

The game centers on the characters and their abilities, not to mention the chance to switch to another character to create powerful combinations from each playable character.

It includes combos and evasion techniques all rolled into one smooth art style that the anime brings. 

The single story is in the works and it will mainly focus on events that have already transpired. So fans won't need to expect new additions to the story that they know so far. Examples of the story arc would be Tsuzumi Mansion arc to Tanjiro's inevitable encounter with Rui.

What Else To Expect

There is also another Dragon Slayer game that's being developed by another studio but only for mobile devices. The game is said to focus on the "asymmetrical survival action game" and it's title is said to be Demon Slayer: Blood-Stench Blade Royale. 

There is still no release date for said game and it's said that it's delayed indefinitely to have a better outcome of the project rather than rushing it out. 

In this article is also a trailer of the game in case you're curious to know just what to expect and to get you hyped up with the rest of the millions of fans worldwide.
