Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- Sweep the Board! Showcases New Boards and Minigames
On April 26th, 2024, Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- Sweep the Board will be released on the Nintendo Switch, and I, for one, cannot wait. Rather than the usual cookie-cutter arena anime fighting game, Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- Sweep the Board is doing something different. The fine folks of Sega are releasing it as a party game. Today, Sega released a breakdown of how the game will work.
In the new video, fans are introduced to the core gameplay of Sweep the Board! which includes a look at some of the exciting minigames and events which can all be enjoyed with up to 4 players. This takes place on dynamic boards themed around memorable locations from the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba anime, including Tsuzumi Mansion, Mt. Natagumo, and the Mugen Train.
Players also look at the “Demon Slayer Dice” – each Demon-Slayer swordsman has their own set of dice with unique special effects according to that character. Once used, a cooldown timer of 3 turns begins, so they must use this feature effectively. Finally, if a different character joins your group, you can use their Demon Slayer Dice!
Fans can expect an experience that caters to players of all ages and skill levels, fostering laughter and enjoyment for everyone!
