Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is one of the most popular manga ever, written and illustrated by Koyoharu Gotōge. It ran in Weekly Shonen Jump from February 15, 2016, to May 18, 2020. A first TV anime adaptation by Studio Ufotable aired in 2019. A first anime movie titled Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train released on October 16, 2020, in Japan. As a direct sequel to the TV series, and adapting more of the original manga, the movie quickly became the second highest-grossing film of all time in Japan. More anime is coming as well.
As such, the Demon Slayer PS4 game is also one of the hypest upcoming game releases. Especially knowing CyberConnect2 does a great job at adapting Shounen manga into games.
