The much anticipated Mobile Game of Demon Slayer Anime that was stated to debut this year, delayed their release date in order to improve the quality of the game.
The official website for the Kimetsu no Yaiba: Keppū Kengeki Royale (Demon Slayer: Blood-Stench Blade Royale) smartphone game revealed on Tuesday that Aniplex has delayed the game's release, with no specific details of the upcoming improvements.

“We planned to release Demon Slayer: Keppuu Kengeki Royale in 2020, but we decided to postpone the scheduled release window to further improve its quality. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused to everyone who waited for the game’s release.”
The free-to-play smartphone "asymmetrical survival action game" will pit teams of demon slayers and demons against each other, with players doing battle in settings from the story using various skills and characters.
The latest event that happened was the pre-registration campaign to get Tanjiro Kamado, Nezuko Kamado, Zenitsu Agatsuma, and Inosuke Hashikbira as playable characters. The highest reward was the 500,000 pre-registrations tier, which unlocked an SSR ability card exclusively available as an early sign-up bonus.
The manga is also inspiring a separate PlayStation 4 action game titled Kimetsu no Yaiba: Hinokami Keppūtan. Aniplex will publish the game in 2021.
Below is the trailer for the forthcoming PS4 title, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – Hinokami Keppuutan, set to drop some time in 2021. It is being developed by CyberConnect 2, the same studio that developed Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot and Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm.

The game is scheduled to launch sometime in 2021. It wasn’t announced outside Japan yet but it’ll definitely come over.
