Sega announced the Demon Slayer: Sweep the Board Nintendo Switch board game will appear worldwide and not just in Japan. Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mezase! Saikyou Taishi was originally announced on September 10, 2023. However, at the time only a Japanese version appeared. Now we know it will appear in every region when 2024 rolls around.
In Demon Slayer: Sweep the Board, players will use various characters from the series and send them around boards throughout the game based on places from the manga and anime. So far, Tanjiro, Nezuko, Inosuke, Zenitsu, and the nine Hashira are confirmed as playable characters. As you “explore” places like Asakusa by spinning, you can trigger minigames and face demons. The winner ends up becoming the strongest Demon Slayer in the Corps.
The English language website for the game is already live. However, it is primarily acting as a placeholder at the moment. It doesn’t show any information about the title yet. However, the Japanese trailer is available and offers an idea of what to expect from the Mario Party-like game.
This is the second Demon Slayer Switch game so far. The first is a port of The Hinokami Chronicles.
The Demon Slayer: Sweep the Board Nintendo Switch game will launch worldwide in 2024.
