Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles – Rui and Akaza Join the Versus Mode Roster

Today, SEGA is proud to announce that Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles, the official video game of the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba anime, is receiving the first of its free post-launch content updates starting today on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Steam!

This new update features the addition of two playable characters joining the Versus mode roster, both of whom 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 can also now challenge themselves in a variety of online missions that allow them to earn Kimetsu Points you can use to unlock fantastic 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).

As a friendly reminder, players must be on the same version of Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles

to play online together, so we recommend everyone updating to the latest patch to ensure compatibility.

  • Exhilarating Arena Battles – Master the multitude of spectacular skills of a wide roster of characters from the anime and the series’ official spinoff, including Tanjiro and Nezuko, to overcome challengers in head-to-head battle, locally and online.*
  • Moving Drama – Take up the sword as Tanjiro Kamado and guide his journey to become a Demon Slayer and turn his sister Nezuko back into a human.
  • Thrilling Boss Battles– Action and drama reach their peak in specially designed battles against powerful demons that will test Tanjiro’s mettle.
  • Original Anime Voice Cast – The original English and Japanese voice casts of the anime return to bring their authentic portrayals to the game.
