Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles Update 3 Adds New Playable Characters

Today, SEGA released the third post-launch content update for Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles, available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. This packed update adds 2 new playable characters to the Versus mode roster: Enmu, and the team of Yushiro and Tamayo.

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.

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 skills 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 these 2 new playable demons, more online missions have been added to the game for players to earn Kimetsu Points and unlock brand-new rewards.

Patch 1.30 Notes:

60fps Mode Added to Online Custom Matches

Last month, we added a new 60fps mode to the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Steam versions of the game. This was specific to the controllable sections of exploration and combat in Story mode and certain controllable sections in the offline Versus mode.

Today’s v1.30 update also adds the 60fps option to online custom matches! Please note that online ranked matches will remain at 30fps to ensure a fair playing experience.
