Kimetsu no Yaiba's smartphone game delayed indefinitely

In March this year, it was announced that a smartphone game based on Koyoharu Gotouge's franchise, Kimetsu no Yaiba, was in development. This project was originally scheduled to be released this year, but has now been postponed. On the official site of the project, it was explained that they wanted to improve the quality of the final product and, consequently, the decision was made to postpone the launch indefinitely. The developers expressed their apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Kimetsu no Yaiba's smartphone game delayed indefinitely

The game for smartphones will be free (with some internal purchases) and will be a survival game style “battle-royale”, with a large number of simultaneous players per game. Players are divided into two groups: demon hunters and demons. Both groups must seek to annihilate each other, and the entire concept, characters and locations are inspired by the original manga.

Titled Kimetsu no Yaiba: Keppuu Kengeki Royale, this smartphone game is being developed by Soleil and Quatro A, and will be released for iOS and Android devices in Japan. Even before it was postponed indefinitely, a global release has not been confirmed.

Koyoharu Gotouge began publishing the manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in February 2016 and ended it in May 2020. The publisher published the twenty-second compilation volume on October 2, and the twenty-second third and final on December 4. The manga inspired a 26-episode anime adaptation produced by Ufotable Studios, under the direction of Haruo Sotozaki and scripts written by the studios themselves, released in April 2019. Subsequently, a film titled Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Ressha-hen, it was released in theaters in Japan on October 16.
