SEGA  debuted a new trailer for Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- Sweep the Board!, introducing 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. 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. 

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!
