Third Free Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles Update Adds More Playable Demons

Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles


The third free post-launch update is now live for Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles, adding two more playable additions to the roster. This update includes Enmu, as well as the team of Yushiro and Tamayo, and you can see how they look in the artwork and screenshots below.





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.



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.



The latest update also adds balance changes, as well as 60fps mode to online custom matches, following up on the same addition to sections of exploration and combat in Story mode and certain sections of offline Versus mode. Online ranked matches will remain at 30fps to ensure a fair experience.


Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles is currently available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. You can catch up on the new season of the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba anime here on Crunchyroll.
