The Demon Slayer anime and manga franchise is breaking records left and right.
Although both the anime and manga haven't been in publication for that long, it's already topped sales charts (manga) and made history as the highest-grossing Japanese film in history (movie), surprising titans like One Piece and Spirited Away, among many others.
With that said, it seems like this up-and-coming franchise has set its eyes on yet another industry.
Hot on the heels of the success of the feature film, Demon Slayer: Mugen Train, comes the PlayStation-exclusive, Demon Slayer: Hinokami Keppuutan.

When Will the Demon Slayer PS4 Game Release?
Outside of the vague "2021" release date, we don't really have any idea when the Demon Slayer PS4 title will release on the PlayStation 4.
Even so, we probably shouldn't expect it any earlier than mid-2021.
This is following the statement made by CyberConnect2 CEO, Hiroshi Matsuyama, back in the October 2020 issue of Famitsu.
Is a Trailer Available for the Demon Slayer PS4 Game?
As you can see from the link above, there is a trailer for the Demon Slayer PS4 game.
The trailer shows off an in-game rendition of the opening arc of the anime and gives audiences their first glimpse of the Water Breathing breathing style.
It's not a lot, but it gives us a good idea of what to expect from the game once it's out.
Will the Demon Slayer PS4 Game Have an Original Story?
Based on currently available information, the Demon Slayer PS4 game will not have an original story. Instead, it will adapt portions of the manga. However, we wouldn't be surprised if it ends up adopting the story of the anime's first season.
For those who aren't exactly fans of the franchise, Demon Slayer revolves around its protagonist, Tanjiro Kamado.
Tanjiro finds himself faced with a tragedy after returning from a long trip as he finds his entire family except for his sister, Nezuko, slain by demons. Unfortunately, it's not all good news. Because, despite having survived the ordeal, Tanjiro finds out that Nezuko is now a demon, and he now has to embark on a desperate quest to try and find a way to bring his sister back.
What's the Demon Slayer PS4 Title Gameplay Like?
The developers have yet to reveal in-game gameplay footage of the Demon Slayer PS4 game. However, CyberConnect2 has described it as a "versus-fighting demon-slaying action game". This likely means that it will play similarly to the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm series, which, in itself, is a video game series based on a popular anime and manga franchise.
If there's any consolation though, we should see more gameplay details revealed pretty soon.
Game'sTalk.net recently revealed that a certain February issue of Weekly Shonen Jump magazine will include news about the Demon Slayer PS4 title, with a trailer expected to debut just a couple of days after.
Is Demon Slayer a PlayStation-Exclusive Title?
Yes. At least, for now.
The Demon Slayer PS4 title has only been revealed to be available on the PlayStation 4. However, similar to the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm video game series, it is possible that the developers will make the game available on other platforms later on.
