Aniplex will release a pencil game based on Koyoharu Gotouge’s hit anime and manga series, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. The pencil game, titled “Keppuu Gekitou Enpitsu” is similar to a card game or visual combat book where you toss a pencil that has actions or damage numbers on each side. They plan to release four volumes for a total of twelve pencils. [Thanks, Gamer!]
Volumes 1 and 2 will come out in November 2021, with Volumes 3 and 4 arriving in December 2021. Each volume has three pencils, with one character per pencil.
- Volume 1: Tanjiro, Nezuko, Giyu
- Volume 2: Zenitsu, Inosuke, Urokodaki
- Volume 3: Shinobu, Kanao, Rui
- Volume 4: Rengoku, Enmu, Akaza
The character’s health is at the top of each pencil and each side has an ability, as well the attack and defense number of each ability. For example, one of Enmu’s skills can force a Human to skip a turn. Of course, you can also use these pencils as a normal 2B pencil without having to engage in demon slaying or human eating of any kind.
Speaking of Demon Slayer fighting games, Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles will release worldwide in October 2021. The Japanese version will come out on October 14, 2021, and the English version will release on October 15, 2021. Sega has also confirmed that the game will have dual audio, as well as subtitles in five different languages.
The Demon Slayer pencil game will arrive in November and December 2021, with three pencils per pack. They will cost 550 JPY each.
