At the beginning of the month, the players of Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles were entitled to a first free content update adding Rui and Akaza for fashion Versus. After announcing that the next demons on the list were Susamaru and Yahaba, CyberConnect2, Aniplex and SEGA have once again broadcast trailers for these newcomers, which did not take long to be made available since update 1.2 was deployed on Wednesday.
For more details on these fighters, here are official descriptions:
Yahaba is a demon who joins forces with Susamaru in order to ambush Tanjiro in Asakusa, following orders from Kibutsuji. With eyes on his hands, he can generate arrows whose direction he manipulates with his demon blood. These arrows can be used either to pierce enemies and knock them to the ground, or on environments to create debris to throw at opponents.
Yahaba’s arrows have two types of attacks: those that do damage and those that do not. Players will use harmless ones to create distance between themselves and the enemy. Then, as soon as their guard is down, players can use the arrows that do damage to achieve an effective combo!
Susamaru is a little girl-like demon who teams up with Yahaba to attack Tanjiro in Asakusa. Thanks to the power she uses through her powerful temari balls (decorative balls), she can keep her distance from any of her opponents. In-game, this makes her particularly effective against demon slayers who favor melee.
Susamaru fights by throwing his Temari balls at his enemies while moving very actively on the ground. The use of his bullets is a good way to lure his opponent by letting him let his guard down and then inflict heavy combos on him which will earn him a certain amount of damage.
But that’s not all, since this patch also includes the 60 fps mode exclusive to the PS5, Xbox Series X and PC versions, allowing to enjoy the exploration and confrontations of the scenario with this framerate higher, as well as parts of the Offline Versus. For the rest, nothing changes. New online missions have again been added at the same time. There are still two demons expected at a later date, without further details at this time.
Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles is otherwise sold € 39.99 on Amazon within the framework of Black friday.
