Releasing the first free post-launch content update for Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles earlier today, SEGA and developer CyberConnect 2 has confirmed that two new players are now available to play as via the fighting game’s Versus Mode. These two members are members of the powerful Twelve Kizuki: Rui (Lower Five), the demon of Mt. Natagumo, and Akaza (Upper Three), a fighter who appeared during the Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train that only wishes to reach the peak of his strength.
Players are also invited to challenge themselves in a range of online missions to earn Kimetsu Points – which can be traded in for rewards such as newly added quotes and profile photos. All this new content will be available immediately after users download and install the latest update for the game (v1.11).
Take a sneak peek at both Rui and Akaza in action via the below screenshots:
Depending on your platform, updating to Version 1.11 may not be mandatory. However, online play is only supported between players of the same game version – so if you want to take advantage of these characters and play with your friends, it is best to keep with the updates.
Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles is now available to purchase digitally and/or physically on the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Windows PC (the latter digital-only via Steam).
