Demon Slayer has been the talk of the town ever since Mugen Train came out. The film’s success was well-deserved and brought a spike in the popularity of anime and manga worldwide.
Veteran and newbie fans both have been anticipating the upcoming developments and installments of the franchise. Although the manga has concluded, the anime is all set for its season 2.
Moreover, gamers in the otaku community have been desperately waiting for the franchise’s game called The Hinokami Chronicles. The game recently dropped a behind-the-scenes video, and it is one of the most incredible things I’ve ever seen.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles game previewed the demons and spectacular graphics in its latest development report trailer.
The game will be out for sale on October 14, 2021, on various platforms.
The video has some shots of the demons being made and how they’re set in motion, and it is so captivating to watch. It shows how fascinating and meticulous a game developer’s job is.
The trailer previews Swamp Demon, Susamaru, Yahaba, Kyogai, and Rui, showing how they’re developed and put into action. Honestly, I was in awe of the whole process as it looked so smooth and accurate.
Generally, games fail to meet an anime’s standards and quality. But Hinokami Chronicles is not one of those as its graphics are top-notch and on par with the anime.
As shown, the game’s plot will be based on the show’s first season when Tanjiro becomes a Demon Slayer and how Nezuko becomes a demon. The gameplay is set in all the places where Tanjiro and Nezuko went on missions.
The Demon Slayer franchise seems to satisfy all types when it comes to media. The series seems to excel in all, whether it be anime, film, manga, game, or stage play.
Though the teasing about the upcoming season 2 and the game is making me anxious, I cannot wait for both of these to come out.
