It’s unclear which demons will be playable to the game’s Versus Mode, but with the iconic series sporting a long list of characters, it shouldn’t be too hard to choose some great characters. No other information about the post-launch update has been revealed, with CyberConnect 2 and Aniplex simply saying that details will be announced at a later date.
Developed by CyberConnect2 and published by Sega, Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles is a fighting game based on the incredibly popular anime and manga. The single-player Adventure Mode will retell the tale of Tanjiro Kamado’s quest to turn her sister Nezuko back into a human, as well as the events from the recent movie Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train.
