Demon Slayer is a hugely popular Japanese manga that ran in Weekly Shōnen Jump from February 2016 to May 2020. There's a 26-episode anime and a sequel film, which became the highest-grossing anime film and Japanese film of all time when it released in October last year. A second season is set for late 2021.

The video game is developed by CyberConnect2, the Japanese studio behind Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja games, and the wonderful Asura's Wrath.
