"Don't ever give up."

In the opening segments of Demon Slayer: Kibetsu no Yaiba, a kind-hearted boy named Tanjiro returns from a day of work to find his entire family brutally murdered by a demon, with his sister having become a demon herself. So, clearly, let’s make it a family board game! (Honestly, if you’ve read the manga or watched the show, you’ll know it sounds kind of perfect.)

SEGA has announced that Demon Slayer ~Kimetsu no Yaiba~ Sweep the Board! is now available for Nintendo Switch.

Akin to Super Mario Party, Sweep the Board allows up to four players to enjoy board game style gameplay, events, and minigames either locally or online.

Roll the dice and aim to become the strongest Demon-Slayer swordsman! – Iconic locations from the anime, like Mt. Fujikasane and Asakusa, appear as boards in this game. Advance on the game board by rolling the dice! The game board switches between day and night. During the day, prepare for the night with events and minigames. At night, you will search for demons to defeat. 

Take control of iconic characters! – Choose your favorite characters from the Demon Slayer Corps., including Tanjiro, Zenitsu, Inosuke, and the Hashira! Nezuko appears on the game board to aid players as a support character!

Fight demons by waving the Joy-Con™! – Face off against demons like Akaza in minigames and swing the Joy-Con like the Nichirin Sword to attack. 

Players will want to grab the day one patch as it adds a Swordsmith Village board…

Swordsmiths such as Haganezuka, Kanamori, and Tecchin are around to support players in various ways. That includes Kotetsu, who holds the key to the battle-type mechanical doll “Yoriichi Type Zero.” At night, the powerful demons Gyokko and Hantengu will appear, awaiting all four players who dare to challenge them!

…two new mini games (Food Delivery! and Mask Match), online and local wireless multiplayer, two new boss fights, player cards, and more.

Demon Slayer ~Kimetsu no Yaiba~ Sweep the Board! is available now in the Nintendo eShop for $59.99. Those who purchase the digital standard edition will receive the base game and a set of four Stamps featuring Tanjiro Kamado, Nezuko Kamado, Zenitsu Agatsuma, and Inosuke Hashibira. Stamps are used for player communication in-game and are available to use in the “Sweep the Board” game mode.

A standard physical edition of the game is also available. For more information, visit demonslayer-sweeptheboard.sega.com.
