Grab your demon slaying gear and hop on the infinite hype train headed to Osaka!
A new collaboration is coming to Universal Studios Japan! The theme park has been giving fans awesome experiences for years and this location in particular does an excellent job of partnering with other franchises outside the Universal Pictures studio. The highly anticipated Super Nintendo World expansion opened just this March but the excitement does not stop there as the park partners with arguably one of the most popular anime franchises: Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.
The series boasted spectacular fight scenes and now, you can experience the thrill through this new attraction as a battle rages in front of you where the characters showcase their enchanting sword fighting Breathing Styles. Start off with Tanjiro’s Water Breathing and then watch the other members of the Demon Slayer Corps demonstrate their fantastic styles. USJ promises a highly immersive, unique, and exciting experience that will allow visitors to “experience breathing techniques with their whole bodies” which could refer to a virtual reality type of attraction or a 4-D theater (or both?). Not yet familiar with the series? Check out the first season's trailer below and give it a go!
The details are not yet complete as the park plans to release information about upcoming content through announcements on their official Twitter made by Tanjiro and Neuzko themselves beginning Thursday, July 1. But guests can definitely expect various limited-edition Demon Slayer themed USJ merchandise and food that will bring you into the world of the popular series.
The collaborative attraction is scheduled to open from September 17, 2021 to February 13, 2022. Find your own Sagiri Mountain and start training to make the most of this full-body experience! Maybe you can even get a Nichirin blade at the end?
