A collaboration event with the film Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Ressha-hen was announced on the Thai Facebook page of the Garena Free Fire smartphone game. The event will be titled "Smash the Nightmare Completely!" It is described as: “Free Fire will join forces with Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Ressha-hen, the Japanese film that has recently broken records. We combine the burning passion of both projects! More details will be revealed soon.
While in the original post there are a lot of positive reactions that definitely top popular opinion, there are also some other negative reactions that highlight the little sense of collaboration as they are franchises of totally different concepts. However, this guy's comment with the best reception expressed: “If this doesn't go well, I will go directly to the company and destroy it. You're warned". Others simply criticized that the company seeks to hang on to the current popularity of the film, although others claim that the game is already popular on its own.
Garena Free Fire is a battle royale game developed by 111 Dots Studio and distributed by Garena. The game became the most downloaded installment on mobile devices in 2019, and an improved version is in the works that will be titled Free Fire Max. The beta version was launched on September 30, 2017 and the official version was subsequently released on December 4 of the same year.
On the other hand, the feature film was released in Japanese theaters on October 16 in Japan and is a direct sequel to the events of the anime, adapting the "Infinity Train Arc" from the original manga. Koyoharu Gotouge published the manga in Shueisha publisher's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine between February 2016 and May 2020.
