Prominent locations from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba anime, such as Mount Fujikasane and Asakusa, will show up on the board!
The game features a day-and-night system, and squares will change based on the time.
During the day, roll dice to move across the board, completing events and minigames as you prepare for nightfall. During the nighttime phase, outshine your fellow Demon Slayers by hunting down as many demons as possible.
・Choose From a Large Cast of Characters, Including The Nine Hashira!
Playable characters in this game include Tanjiro Kamado, Zenitsu Agatsuma, Inosuke Hashibira, and the nine Hashira.
Since Nezuko Kamado is unable to operate during the day, she instead appears as a support character who’ll help players out.

・Tackle a Variety of Mini-Games!
As the game progresses, players will participate in a number of mini-games, ranging from 4-player free-for-alls to 2-on-2 team battles.
At night, demons—including powerful foes like the barbaric Teoni—will appear on some of the squares, allowing you to challenge them in combat-based minigames. Shake your Joy-Con™ and face off against them as a 4-player team.
