Demon Slayer has seen a meteoric rise in popularity over the past few years and it doesn't seem to be slowing down. The manga has shattered Shonen Jump records, while the anime has reached new levels of international popularity after finding its way onto. Even the film adaptation, Demon Slayer: Mugen Train, has become one of the highest-grossing movies in the world over the past year. Fans will now soon be able to play as Tanjiro, his friends and allies, and even the villainous demons, as the hit series is set to get its own video game, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - Hinokami Keppuutan, or more simply, Demon Slayer: The Video Game.
Demon Slayer follows the story of Tanjiro Kamado, a young man who returns home from selling charcoal in a nearby town to find that his entire family has been massacred by a demon. His younger sister, Nezuko, is the only member of his family who survives the attack, but he soon realizes that she has been turned into a demon. Tanjiro then decides to join the Demon Slayer corps so that he can protect others from the evil forces that murdered his family while he searches the world for a cure to return his sister back to her human form.
