TEST Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles: a demonic Switch edition?

Yes, if you missed the information, Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles comes to Nintendo Switch. Inevitably, there is something to titillate fans of the franchise since the baby of CyberConnect2 can now follow us anywhere. But before going through the purchase box, we have dissected this porting in order to give you our impressions. So, verdict?

Demon Slayer has nothing to be ashamed of on other platforms.

To start, we played it in mode Portable and it must be said that the rendering is impeccable. This adaptation is neat, very colorful and above all fluid. The animated aspect is very pleasing to the eye, the play of light amuses us the peepers, in short, it’s spot on. And in fashion TV, how is it looking ? Well, the developers did a good job since, overall, the game runs wonderfully. So certainly, a bit ofaliasing hangs around, but does not bother the retinas. On the other hand, and just like the other editions from the competition, the flaws are still there, namely simplistic textures, empty and lifeless environments, popping and many other things

In addition, the grip is not at all bad with the Joy-Conalthough we recommend playing it with a good controller Pro. Something to take into account, it is not possible to disconnect these small pads to play in local multiplayer; you need another pair of Joy-Con to have fun with a friend. Point to take into account, this version includes various bonuses from the start (16,000 points, uniforms and outfits) and includes the additions that have been propagated among friends. This production has evolved over time and allows you to take control of new characters, such as demons, which were not integrated into the base game. A good point for now!
