Right now the game is currently up for pre-order in the Nintendo eShop for $60 as it will be released on June 10th, 2022. It will be the current version of the game with all the updates and content released up to that point. Those who pre-order will get the full game, five Kimetsu Academy Summer Uniform costumes, three Butterfly Mansion Patient Wear costumes, a Kimetsu Academy Character Unlock Key, and 16,000 Kimetsu Points.

Along with the release will also be the DLC, which is called the "Additional Character Pack", which will basically be a series of characters that will serve as downloadable content that you can get in one pack with the characters being released over time, or as individual DLC purchases if you choose to go that route.
