Although the playable roster of The Hinokami Chronicles is feeling the lack of demons right now, there's a lot to enjoy from the characters who are there. This 3D fighter delivers on the promise of a power fantasy of Gotouge's manga epic.

Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles is a title made for fans full of fan service. The simple, but fun combat makes it one of the best anime games of recent years, but it still has a couple of problems.

Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles is far from being one of the most inventive games of the genre and brings several problems, such as the absence of game modes and content, laughable exploration and a gameplay model that doesn't appeal to everyone. Still, it's fluid, beautiful, responsive and a true aesthetic and narrative delight for fans of the franchise.

The Hinokami Chronicles is a fighter arena with a poor character roster at the time of its release, and an unorganic story mode. You will be forced to finish it only to see the cutscenes and unlock the characters, instead of exploring battle systems. But not everything is disappointing, as the art direction is incredible, with special attacks taken directly from the anime, and the inclusion of the original music is greatly appreciated.

Finally, I must say that Demon Slayer has been able to provide one of the best anime adaptations by presenting a rich and fascinating story section, the best anime art design in the game industry, unparalleled directing and epic battles, breathtaking bass fights, and the use of anime music in critical moments. Give. The quality of the story section of Demon Slayer is really so high that even newcomers to the series can be told that instead of watching the anime or reading the manga, they can choose Demon Slayer to experience the story of this work. Unfortunately, the lack of attention to other parts of the game and the lack of content have prevented Demon Slayer from reaching its full potential.

Demon Slayer The Hinokami Chronicles is a case of a game that will certainly appeal to fans of the anime but may not pull in a wider audience. The overall content of the game feels sort of shallow, considering the anime is still only in its second season, opening the game up to the possibility of adding more fighters via DLC. That said, if you’re in the market for a simple game that’s based on one of the most popular animes in recent memory with fantastic characters and an interesting storyline, Demon Slayer The Hinokami Chronicles is certainly one title to consider.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles is a fighter that balances depth and accessibility well, but it's hamstrung by an inconsistent story mode and a slim roster.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles is another decent brawler adaptation that asks you to already have a bit of background on the source material to truly enjoy it. In that sense, it joins a very crowded space of many other anime games before it, and many of you out there know where you stand on these.

It's a shame the gameplay is so similar to past games and the exploration segments so bland, because the recreation of the anime it's truly spectacular; the best to date in a CyberConnect2 game. Fans of Kimetsu no Yaiba will probably enjoy it, even with the severe lack of content.
