It was a matter of time before the release of the Nintendo Switch version of Night Watch -Kimetsu No Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles outside Japanese borders was announced. Coinciding with the premiere of the first teaser trailer, the publisher Koch Media, which distributes the title in Spain, has revealed that the game will debut on June 10, just one day after its landing in Japan.
The official video game of the well-known manganime will go on sale on that date in the United States and in EMEA territories, which include European countries, the Middle East and Africa, as well as Australia and New Zealand. The Nintendo Switch version will include all the content released later in the rest of the versions, such as 6 new characters: Rui, Akaza, Susamaru, Yahaba, Enmu and Yushiro & Tamayo. It will also introduce the new online quests that earn Kimetsu Points and the balance changes that have been made so far.
As a pre-order incentive, physical versions will come with a Kimetsu Academy character unlock key.
From charcoal burner to demon hunter
The story of Night’s Watch -Kimetsu No Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles is set in the Taisho period of Japan. The protagonist, Tanjiro, is a benevolent young man who sells charcoal to earn his bread. Misfortune hangs over his person when he finds his family massacred by a violent demon. His own sister Nezuko, the only survivor of his, has become one of these devils.
Tanjiro, consumed by rage, decides to become a true demon hunter, so he will fight to restore humanity to his sister and put an end to the demon that destroyed his family.
The SEGA production originally appeared on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC (Steam).
