The trailer features a fight between Insect Hashira Shinobu Kocho and Water Hashira Giyu Tomioka. Shinobu fights with gracious slashes using her Insect Breathing, and she’s voiced as always by the incredible Saori Hayami. Who also voices Ayaka in Genshin Impact, to take a now mainstream example.
As always, because the Aniplex YouTube account is region locked to Japan, I’ve included a reupload of the Shinobu trailer below:

Demon Slayer Hinokami Keppuutan release date
Aniplex and CyberConnect2 have yet to announce a specific release date for the Demon Slayer game besides 2021. Moreover, the game was first announced back in March 2020. It’s been over a year now. It’s unlikely to be delayed as CC2 in the past said development was proceeding particularly smoothly. So we should get a late 2021 release date announced soon.

Demon Slayer PS5, Xbox game release in the west
Lastly, this is the final point to keep in mind: Kimetsu no Yaiba Hinokami Keppuutan is scheduled to launch in Japan on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Steam. However, the game was technically not announced yet outside Japan. No worries and it’ll definitely come over seeing how huge the anime became. Perhaps at an upcoming event like E3 2021, we could soon get an announcement of the Western version of the Demon Slayer game, and the reveal of the English title.
Future announcements will be coming through Weekly Shonen Jump and the official Twitter of Kimetsu no Yaiba Hinokami Keppuutan.
