First footage of CyberConnect2’s hotly anticipated PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 anime adaptation Demon Slayer has emerged online – and, to the surprise of no one, it’s an anime arena brawler.
The similarities to series like Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm will be immediately obvious to fans of that franchise, although those titles do naturally share the same developer.

There’s no word on a Western release date for this just yet, but it’s due out in Japan this year, where it will be published by Sony subsidiary Aniplex.
The gameplay you’re seeing is taken from the title’s Versus Mode, but it’s worth noting there will be a full story campaign as well, and we’ll likely see more of that closer to release.
