The previously leaked Kimetsu no Yaiba mobile game visual is now officially confirmed to be Kimetsu no Yaiba Keppuu Kengeki Royale! It was earlier reported as Chifuu Kengeki Royale. The Aniplex announcement writes it as Keppuu. Keppuu Kengeki Royale will be for iOS and Android, while Aniplex also simultaneously announced Kimetsu no Yaiba: Hinokami Keppuutan for Playstation 4. Both games now have a game project portal website you can check out.
According to Gematsu, Keppuu Kengeki Royale is an asymmetric battle survival game, but exact details were not provided. It’s mentioned that players will be divided into two groups, featuring the Demon Slayer Corps and the Demons to do battle. Naturally, they’d be aiming to exterminate or annihilate one another.
On a map that recreates the worldview of the original work, with the skills and techniques of each character as their weapons, a battle between “Demon Hunters” and “Man-Eating Demons” will unfold!
Whether you are a “Demon Hunter” or a “Man-Eating Demon”—fight against your conflicting fates!
The release window is set for 2020 in Japan for both iOS and Android devices, with Quatro A, Soleil and Aniplex being part of the development and distribution team.
The PS4 game has even less details, but presumably at the very least, confirming that protagonist Tanjiro Kamado will be playable. The blurb given seems like it’ll be adapting the source material instead of an original story, but we can’t be sure for now. Its release window is set for 2021 in Japan.
