The official website for the Kimetsu no Yaiba: Keppū Kengeki Royale (Demon Slayer: Blood-Stench Blade Royale) smartphone game revealed on Tuesday that Aniplex has delayed the game's release indefinitely in order to improve the quality of the game. The game was previously slated to debut this year.
The free-to-play smartphone "asymmetrical survival action game" will pit teams of demon slayers and demons against each other, with players doing battle in settings from the story using various skills and characters.

The television anime adaptation of the manga premiered in April 2019, and it ran for 26 episodes. Aniplex of America licensed the series and is streaming the show on Hulu, Crunchyroll, and FunimationNow. Adult Swim's Toonami programming block premiered the television anime on October 12. Funimation began streaming the English dub on December 8.
