Watch the new trailer for Demon Slayer -Kimetsu No Yaiba- Sweep the Board!, launching April 26, 2024. From SEGA, the new trailer promises new boards and mini-games available for players upon release. With the first official look at the core gameplay, Sweep the Board! includes events and games that fans can enjoy with up to four players.
The games take place on dynamic boards that are all themed with the anime Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. This includes everything from Tsuzumi Mansion, Mt. Natagumo, and the Mugen Train. Each Demon-Slayer swordsman has their own set of dice — “Demon Slayer Dice.” Each set has unique special effects befitting the character. Once the dice are used, there’s a cooldown timer enacted that takes up three turns, making how you use this feature critical. Players can use the Demon Slayer Dice of different characters who join their group.
As one of the most popular anime series, expect an experience that caters to players of all ages and skill levels.
