Sega has released a new trailer for Demon Slayer -Kimetsu No Yaiba- Sweep the Board! that shows off the minigames and new boards, and confirmed that physical pre-orders are now available for the title, which is coming to Nintendo Switch on April 26th.

The video, says Sega, introduces fans to “the core gameplay of Sweep the Board! which includes a look at some of the exciting minigames and events which can all be enjoyed with up to 4 players”. The publisher added that “all of this takes place on dynamic boards that are themed around memorable locations from the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba anime, including Tsuzumi Mansion, Mt. Natagumo, and the Mugen Train”.

Check out the video, below:


Players also get a look at the “Demon Slayer Dice” – each Demon-Slayer swordsman has their own set of dice that has unique special effects according to that character. Once used, a cooldown timer of 3 turns begins, so they will need to use this feature effectively. Finally, if a different character joins your group, you will be able to use their Demon Slayer Dice!

Fans can expect an experience that caters to players of all ages and skill levels, fostering laughter and enjoyment for everyone!
