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.

‎Kimetsu no Yaiba comes to Nintendo Switch with a fantastic port, so much so that you will have to strive to find real differences with the rest of the versions released. If we add to that the portability or that it arrives "complete" (with all the post-launch characters), the conclusion is that we are facing a more than recommended version.‎

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.

Not having every fighter out of the box is going to be really frustrating for some players, but if nothing else, experiencing the Demon Slayer story is a pretty fun ride.

Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles isn't really a step forward after Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4. The new CyberConnect2 game lacks content, and the story mode play and feels old. Even so, the combat system shines thanks to some minor tweaks and adjustments, and the PvP is as fun as it should be. Sadly, you have to endure a pretty bad six hours campaign before you are finally allowed to participate in some downright spectacular battles with the full roster of characters.

Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles is a title sure to hit the spot for both the fans of the acclaimed series and those of Arena Fighters in general.

Once you’ve had your fill of the story mode, you can jump over to versus mode to test your demon slaying skills against other players in PVP. Those Kimetsu Points you picked up throughout the game can be redeemed in the Rewards menu for different voice lines for each character, different costumes, profile customizations, and, of course, different fighters to unlock. Go head to head with other players in battles both online and locally with characters not only from the anime, but the series’ official spinoff as well.
