Slaying Demons and Stealing Coins: Demon Slayer Gets a Mario Party Makeover

Calling all Demon Slayers and party enthusiasts! Get ready to trade your Nichirin Blades for dice and prepare for a hilarious showdown as your favorite characters from the hit anime Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba embark on a new adventure in Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- Sweep the Board, a brand new Mario Party-style game hitting the Nintendo Switch on April 26th, 2024.

This exciting title marks the second Demon Slayer game for the Switch, offering a fresh twist on the franchise formula. Instead of intense demon-slaying action, Sweep the Board invites players to join Tanjiro, Nezuko, and the rest of the Demon Slayer Corps in a friendly but fierce board game competition. So, put down your katanas, grab your controllers, and let’s dive into what awaits!

Boardwalk Battles and Demon-Filled Dice Rolls

Forget Bowser and his Koopa Troopas – in Sweep the Board, your rivals will be familiar faces like Zenitsu, Inosuke, and even the formidable Hashira. Up to four players can choose their favorite characters and navigate unique boards inspired by iconic locations from the anime. From the bustling streets of Asakusa to the tranquil slopes of Mount Fujikasane, each board offers a distinct visual treat and gameplay twists.

The core gameplay loop follows the classic Mario Party formula: roll the dice, move around the board, and participate in minigames. But don’t be fooled by the seemingly lighthearted atmosphere! Sweep the Board infuses its demon-slaying roots into the experience.

  • Daytime Activities: During the day, players roll dice, collect resources, and engage in various events and mini-games. These mini-games test reflexes, memory, and even swordsmanship skills, providing fun and challenging diversions.
  • Nighttime Demon Hunts: As darkness falls, the playful banter takes a backseat as players work together to track down and defeat demons lurking on the board. Strategic teamwork and coordinated attacks become crucial, reminding us of the core mission of the Demon Slayer Corps.

Unleash Your Inner Hashira with Diverse Playstyles

Sweep the Board wouldn’t be complete without a diverse cast of playable characters, each with their unique abilities and playstyles. You can choose from:

  • The Kamaboko Trio: Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke bring their signature strengths and quirks to the board, offering balanced gameplay with a dash of their individual personalities.
  • The Hashira: For those seeking true power, the nine elite Hashira are unlockable characters, each boasting unique skills and attacks that shake up the competition.
  • Nezuko: While she can’t actively participate in daytime activities, Nezuko acts as a supportive character, granting players special abilities and turning the tide in their favor.

More Than Just Minigames: A Demon Slayer Celebration

Sweep the Board goes beyond its Mario Party inspiration. It’s a love letter to the Demon Slayer universe, packed with fan-service elements that will delight series enthusiasts.

  • Experience Story Events: Relive pivotal moments from the anime through interactive story events that unfold on the board, adding a narrative layer to the gameplay.
  • Immerse Yourself in the World: Lush visuals, familiar music, and voice acting by the original Japanese cast bring the world of Demon Slayer to life on the Switch.
  • Unlock Customization Options: Earn rewards and unlock new costumes and accessories for your chosen characters, allowing you to personalize your Demon Slayer experience.
