Aniplex revealed that it will release a new Demon Slayer board game for the Nintendo Switch in 2024. The game is currently known by its Japanese title Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mezase! Saikyou Taishi!, which we can also translate directly to Demon Slayer: Aim to be the Strongest Soldier!

This board game will support up to four players in both offline and online modes. Each player will move around the board by using dice rolls. The game will have two time phases. Daytime will feature various mini-games to help players muster their strength. Nighttime will have them find and slay hostile demons.

The Japanese press release revealed that the board game will feature Tanjiro, Zenitsu, Inosuke, and all nine Hashira members as playable characters. Tanjiro’s sister Nezuko will only appear as a supporting character, as she would not be able to do activities in the daytime.

Aniplex has published the reveal trailer for Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mezase! Saikyou Taishi! on its YouTube channel. This video is also available to watch outside of Japan.

Aniplex also announced that this Demon Slayer board game for Switch will be the second video game adaptation for the franchise. The first one was Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles, an arena fighter game developed by CyberConnect2. While Aniplex focused on publishing the game in Japan, Sega helped release it worldwide for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.

Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mezase! Saikyou Taishi! will be available for Nintendo Switch in Japan in 2024.
