Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles is an experience that never overstays its welcome. While the map may be simplistic and outdated, the combat, visuals, voice acting, and story more than make up for anything the game lacks. New and old fans will find something to enjoy here, while the versus mode will keep players engaged long after the credits roll.
Overall, The Hinokami Chronicles is an enjoyable arena fighter with a really intriguing story. There are moments where the game feels a bit too slow or uninteresting during the exploration moments, but the combat makes up for it. Fans of Demon Slayer will love plaything through The Hinokami Chronicles, and even newcomers to the series will enjoy this well-done fighting game.
I played many of CC2 games one of my favourite CC2 games is jojo all stars battle and naruto ultimate ninja storm 4 i think Demon slayer kimetsu no yaiba is a true successor to naruto ultimate ninja storm 4 the combat is and mechcanics are vastly improved from just mashing circle and pressing the L left stick up or down to change the combo you can mix up specials you have push block which is a fantastic new mechanics the parry mechancis is better than in storm 4 the animations are fantastly well done the game is cinematic as ever CC2 again delivered a fantastic story mode the cutscenes where just like in the anime the boss fights where great the only thing we are missing is a big roster and more arenas which could be fixed by releasing more characters and arenas and 60 frames per second mode for PS5 is what really need its a fighting game so 60fps is a must for better input latency in fact the game needs improvement in input latency the PS4 version of this game is a mess.I enjoyed the mini games with the gourd and tea they where hard and challenging i just platinumed the game on PS5 and i think its one of the best arena fighting games i have played
I can’t believe there’s someone out there not liking this game. We are getting 6 new free characters as the time goes so you can’t get bored. The story mode is so beautiful and in my opinion the most competitive arena fighter. Its a 10/10 for me 100% but not for everyone.
Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles is a loving recreation of the first leg of Tanjiro and Nezuko's journey. It might not push the envelope in any meaningful way, but I can guarantee that this will satiate Demon Slayer fans and maybe even provide some entertainment for newcomers. It delivers on exactly what's promised, and I think that is what most people will want out of The Hinokami Chronicles.
Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles is a fan service game, and it doesn't hide it. If you are a fan of the first hour then you will have no problem to dive into this adventure which mixes combat and narrative phases, all in the enchanting universe of the anime. For the others, the experience will lose a lot of flavor. The story mode is not always well-paced and the Versus mode is clearly not enough on its own. In the end, the game is mainly for fans of Koyoharu Gotōge's work.
In short, this game feels very much like a stepping stone on the way to a better Demon Slayer game in the future — one with a wider variety of playable characters, more new combat features, and a longer storyline that can afford to cut out filler moments that pad the experience.
Demon Slayer: The Hikonami Chronicles is a bit lacking where it had everything to succeed: with a faithful representation of the characters of the anime, it does not go further, with an empty environment, dated textures and a technique that smacks of old, even on next-gen consoles, not to mention a cruel and glaring lack of variety in the action. But he has for him a model more than faithful to the anime and a combat system as simple as it is effective, which will appeal to the greatest number, despite a weak roster and great confusion in the action when several people are fighting at the same time. A game of average quality after all, for fans and for those who want to easily take their eyes off between combos.
The game is fun, the combat is deep enough for the roster of characters it has and the visuals are really good, CyberConnect2 knows how to do an anime character rendered in 3D look 2D.
That being said the game really lacks in world exploration and navigation, it felt like a chore to go around every level and collect every memory fragment, kimetsu points and other events.
The roaster of characters is a mixed bag to me: on one hand each character plays very differently from the others, but on the other I feel that it needs to get bigger fast. Maybe a DLC with yet to animate characters from the next arc in the manga (like Muichiro and Mitsuri) could help with this problem. So the quality of the characters move sets are good (better than in Ultimate Ninja Storm 4), but the quantity could be better.
Something else this game lacks besides characters is game modes, like a tournament mode or a mode in which one has to manage themselves against multiple demons (or demon slayers) at an arena at the same time, or something akin to bloody palace from Devil May Cry. Something else could´ve been done, but it wasn´t done and that disappoints me.
Overall it is a good game, it just lacks content to keep playing it after finishing the story and S ranking it (not that it doesn´t have any, it just lacks more)
Lo mejor: adaptación muy fiel al anime, incluye la primera temporada (6 capítulos) y la película del tren infinito (2 capítulos) . Combate divertido y vistoso, gran recreación de las batallas contra los jefes demonio.
Lo peor: sus mecánicas simples pueden no satisfacer a todo el mundo, uso nulo de la vibración o dual sense en ps5, se echa en falta más variedad de actividades (mini juegos escasos), poca exploración.
Conclusión: buen juego que cumple con los objetivos que se propone, pero con falta de ambición, lo que hace que sea recomendable fundamentalmente para los fans del manga-anime.
The fights are decent, but most of the game is just running around in a ps2 game style minus the great rewards and interesting side stories and the long dialogues, which could have been done better. Some times there is a dialogue I want to skip but I know that something interesting would happen if I wanted the boring talk. I could not even continue to finishe the third chapter
