The popular anime by Ufotable is getting a movie later this year, which is great for fans who can’t wait for Season 2 to arrive. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train (or likely-translated as Demon Slayer: Infinity Train) will be releasing in Japanese cinemas on 16 October 2020.
The film will pick up where Season 1 of the anime left viewers and adapt the Demon Train arc from the manga. The characters of Demon Slayer find themselves on a train that is said to have reported demon activity causing passengers to mysteriously disappear.
The details about the Demon Slayer movie release date were announced via its official Twitter account.

In the trailer, we get brief glimpses of Enmu, Tanjiro, and Inosuke, along with a few flame-fueled frames of Kyojuro Rengoku, who the gang hopes to find onboard the Infinity Train.
However, there’s nothing official yet about an international or worldwide release, though due to its immense popularity, that will probably be announced sooner rather than later, depending on how the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic will be like in the near future.
Meanwhile, there are also two Demon Slayer games currently in development. Chifuu Kengeki Royal is heading to Android and iOS mobile devices, while Hinokami Kepputan is coming to the PS4 sometime in 2021.
In the meantime, check out the Demon Slayer movie trailer below.
