    CyberConnect2 fulfills all our expectations with Demon Slayer Hinokami Chronicles. The title is great for fans of the manga and newcomers alike, however, there is definitely room for improvement.

    Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles faithfully recreates popular anime Demon Slayer as a competitive 3D action fighting game. While the amount of playable characters and the exploration part leave room for improvement, there’s a lot to love here for fans of the source material.

    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.

    For fans of anime fighting games, Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles is a compelling experience. Even if you're a newcomer to the series, this is a game that is fun to play, with a bold narrative that grips you early on. It may feel light at times, but it's a fine example of what CyberConnect2 does best.

    When I look at Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles I keep seeing the usual formula that Cyberconnect2 has been using for years of anime tie-in fighters. It’s still an enjoyable and fun fighting game, if you care enough to get into its more obscure mechanics, but it could have been much better with more emphasis on a proper training mode and a more fleshed out campaign. Nonetheless, it’s also one of the prettiest game ever developed by the software house that created .Hack and a proper celebration of the bombastic action sequences of the original animated series produced by world-known animation studio Ufotable.

    This is a very faithful adaptation of the anime and that’s something fans will love, even if unfortunately it’s very limited gameplay-wise.

    As a fan of Demon Slayer series you’ll probably have an easier time communicating with the game, but for anybody else there isn’t much entertainment on offer here as long cut scenes and shallow gameplay really hurt the overall experience.

It feels like you are tanjiro fighting through the world of demon slayer. With stunning visuals and beautiful sound design not to mention the simple yet intuitive combat this game is a must play experience for any fan of demon slayer. It is a tad overpriced but with online play and going back to unlock everything it has a ton of replay value. So overall it’s a great game. Expand

    After previous games from CyberConnect2 this project looks like a complete joke. In a full-released game for 60 dollars there are only elevenAfter previous games from CyberConnect2 this project looks like a complete joke. In a full-released game for 60 dollars there are only eleven playable characters WITHOUT any actual playable demons! The plot mostly gets revealed through not-animated pictures. The lack of interesting battles is hidden by additional missions, where you have to beat the same monster dummies over and over again in order to receive out the highest rank. And for what? For new music track or picture for in-game collection? Pathetic.

    I sincerely hope that the developers are only testing the new anime universe and some game-play mechanics in this project, and in the second part we will get a noteworthy game.

    Game is **** Players can run away the whole match and use skills on people who approach them. Pursuit can't keep up to them. This game isGame is **** Players can run away the whole match and use skills on people who approach them. Pursuit can't keep up to them. This game is toxic af. Story is linear. Story is eay too easy. 60$ not worth it. For a crappy story and a toxic online. Do not reccomend especially w since there is only 20 characters at the time of this post 6 of which are just skins. Waste of money. Expand
