Aniplex has revealed that a new Demon Slayer game is on the way, and it's a Mario Party-style minigame bonanza.

According to a press release (which is entirely in Japanese), Demon Slayer Mezase! Saikyou Taishi! will adapt many of the most iconic locations from the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba manga and anime into boards.

Just like in Mario Party, you'll roll dice to make progress along the board, but the squares will change depending on whether or not it's day or night in the game.

During the day, you'll engage in minigames and events, and at night, you'll battle demons and try to get ahead of other players by being a more efficient, uh, demon slayer.

You can check out the announcement trailer for Demon Slayer Mezase! Saikyou Taishi! below, but be aware that it's in Japanese too.

The game will feature numerous playable characters, including Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke, and various other Demon Slayer characters will also appear, either in support roles or during events.

Demon Slayer Mezase! Saikyou Taishi! marks the second major Demon Slayer video game project after 2021's Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - The Hinokami Chronicles

Where that game emphasized combat and exploration, though, this new title looks to be a more lighthearted, party-focused affair, with a Mario Party-esque emphasis on co-operative and competitive play.

Unfortunately, there's no release date for Demon Slayer Mezase! Saikyou Taishi! yet. The game is currently in development and is slated for release in 2024, but no specific date has been announced.

In addition, we don't actually know whether the game is coming West or not. The announcement and debut trailer are both in Japanese, so it could be a while before we see this one on Western shores.

Hopefully, we'll hear more about Demon Slayer Mezase! Saikyou Taishi! soon, so stay tuned. When it does arrive, it'll come to Nintendo Switch, with no other platforms currently announced.
