A new generation of demon slayers are in the wings, as Aniplex and CyberConnect2 announced Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles will release on the Nintendo Switch in Japan. It will have two editions and will launch on June 9, 2022. Though this release date is for Japan, it is possible that the Switch version will release in other regions, as the game is available in English. However, nothing has been confirmed as of yet.

The regular edition of Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles on the Switch will cost 7,480 JPY (about $65), and the limited edition will cost 11,800 JPY (approximately $103). The limited edition will come with new outfits as well as a bonus of 16,000 Kimetsu Points. The new costumes are patient outfits and additional Kimetsu Academy costumes. Specifically, the patient outfits are what Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke wore during their time recuperating at the Butterfly Mansion.

There are already Kimetsu Academy alts of characters in the game. It is unclear as to whether the limited edition will provide new outfits for these characters, or if the Kimetsu Academy costumes will appear as outfits for other existing playable characters.

In addition, more information regarding the Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles Nintendo Switch release will come out in mid-February 2022. More news on bonuses or Switch-exclusive content may appear then.

Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles is readily available on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Windows PC. The Nintendo Switch version will launch on June 9, 2022 in Japan.
