Exactly a week ago, the game Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles was enriched with two more playable characters, all thanks to the first of three free updates. Players have been given access to the demons Rui and Akaza.
In the latest issue of the Weekly Shounen Jump magazine, the names of the next playable characters who will soon be added to the production were given. The demons Susamaru and Yahaba are waiting for players as part of the # 2 free update has been officially announced.
These are other characters well known to fans of the anime Kimetsu no Yaiba, who appeared in the first season of the episode production. Although the exact release date of update # 2 is unknown, we can expect its arrival in late November or early December.
As a reminder, the developers plan to release a total of three free updates, which will introduce six playable characters. Susamaru and Yahaba are the third and fourth additional warriors, respectively. The third update will add a fifth and sixth character about which nothing is known yet.
Like the manga prototype, this production will also focus on the young demon slayer, Tanjiro Kamado, who will set out on a mission to stop the greatest evil sower, Muzan Kibutsuji. Tanjiro hopes to save his sister’s life, Nezuko, who has been turned into a demon.
