Is Demon Slayer Hinokami Chronicles coming to Switch?

Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba the Hinokami Chronicles was first announced for PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. Later on, in February 2021, Hinokami Chronicles was also announced on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.

However, Hinokami Chronicles was not announced on Switch and will not be coming to Nintendo’s console. It’s the sole platform Tanjiro’s adventures won’t be available on.

CyberConnect2 Switch port or sequel predictions

However, it’s possible a Switch port will be announced in the long run. Demon Slayer is literally the most popular anime ever in Japan now in terms of revenue. And the Nintendo Switch is by far the most popular console in the archipel.

Launching a Switch version of Hinokami Chronicles would generate huge sales, be it in or outside Japan. If a sequel gets announced, it could also be released on Switch. Plus, all of the games developed by CyberConnect2 recently were also released on every platform including Switch; Such as Fuga Memories of Steel. So there is still hope for a Switch port in the future.
