Anticipated 3D Fighting Game to Be Released with 30 FPS In 2021
Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles, the upcoming 3D fighting game based on the popular anime game Demon Slayer, has received a few final details before its release on October 15th. One of these details is a major performance issue – upon launch, the game will run with a 30 FPS cap.
The 30 FPS cap will be placed on all platforms – PC, Playstation, and Xbox. As a developer on Steam confirms, “Hello! Yes, just to confirm, while it will be 30 fps at launch to ensure a smooth playing experience both offline and online, we will indeed be adding a 60 fps performance mode (60 fps gameplay, 30 fps cutscenes, to be precise) in a post-launch update. We appreciate your understanding during these challenging times.”
Although the devs, CyberConnect2, did announce that a 60 fps patch would come on a further unspecified date, there is a bad track record with CyberConnect2’s history of patches. Their last big 3D fighting game, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja STORM 4, received its patch on February 3, 2017, nearly a year after its original release on Feb 4, 2016.
The developers have also updated the Digital Deluxe Edition on Steam to give you a high-resolution PC wallpaper, rather than the promised profile background. In compensation, players who purchased the Digital Deluxe Edition will now receive an additional bonus of “2 Bonus Character Unlock Keys,” “1 Additional Character Avatar,” and the ability to access the game early starting from October 13th, 2 days before the official release of the game.
What do you think of the fact that a 30 FPS cap exists on Demon Slayer The Hinokami Chronicles? Will you delay your purchase to wait for the promised 60 FPS patch? Let us know down in the comments, or hit us up on Twitter or Facebook.
