Enmu, Yushiro & Tamayo Join Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles As DLC Characters

The third downloadable content (DLC) pack has officially released for SEGA’s fighting game Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles on all supported platforms – the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One. This pack introduces two playable characters into the mix, who will be available in the game’s Versus Mode roster: Enmu, and the team of Yushiro and Tamayo. More information on each playable character can be found below.

About the Newly Introduced Characters

About Enmu

Lower One of the Twelve Kizuki who serve under Kibutsuji’s direct command, Enmu has a twisted personality and savors the sight of people’s sorrow and grief. After being granted blood from Kibutsuji himself, he attacked Tanjiro and the other Demon Slayers who went aboard the Mugen Train.

Enmu excels at fighting with long-range attacks and projectiles that can disrupt his foes. In addition to light and aerial attacks, even Enmu’s throwing moves have a long reach, allowing players to keep their distance against their opponents. Both his support skills also can’t be guarded against, making them highly effective in catching others off guard.

About Yushiro & Tamayo

Tamayo researches demons with the hope of taking revenge on Kibutsuji, the man who turned her into one. Yushiro is a young man whose life was saved by Tamayo by turning him into a demon – her only successful attempt thus far in her research.

Yushiro has different skills that allow him to attack while dodging or parrying the opponent’s attacks, and he excels at taking the initiative following an opponent’s attack. Additionally, Tamayo can be summoned using Yushiro’s support skill and will act independently like a co-op character. Thus, while having the characteristics of the other demon fighters, Yushiro and Tamayo bring a “tag team” approach to combat.


Alongside the two new playable demons, more online missions have been added via the Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles‘ v1.30 update. These will give players the chance to earn Kimetsu Points, and unlock brand-new rewards. Other features included as the latest update include:

60fps Mode for Online Custom Mates

The new 60fps mode has been added to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of the game last month. This is specific to the controllable sections of exploration and combat in Story mode and certain controllable sections in the offline Versus mode. Building upon this, a 60fps option is now available to custom online matches, although to remain fair, online ranked matches will be limited to 30fps still.
