Note that this is identical to the Digital Deluxe Edition sold for consoles too. Personally speaking, I’m definitely not a fan of pre orders including earlier access to a game. With that said, If you plan to get Demon Slayer on Steam, you’ll definitely be better off pre ordering anyways. To get the bonus costumes and characters.
Demon Slayer The Hinokami Chronicles was first announced back in March 2020. The game is titled Kimetsu no Yaiba Hinokami Keppuutan in Japan. The October 15 release is a worldwide release.
