Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles, the upcoming game based on the hugely popular anime franchise, is available to pre-purchase now on a wide variety of platforms, with one notable exception.

This adaptation, by the team at CyberConnect2, the team behind Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, will put you right in Tanjiro’s shoes. You’ll play through events from the first season of the anime and the hugely popular film adaptation to try and save your sister.
