Yahaba and Susamaru invade Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles

Hi there, everyone! After adding Rui and Akaza to the game in October, we are excited to announce that the second in the series of free post-launch content updates is now available in Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles.

This new update adds two more characters to Versus mode: Yahaba and Susamaru. In this article, we would like to introduce these two new playable demons and how they appear in The Hinokami Chronicles.


The first is Yahaba (voiced by Xander Mobus), a menacing figure who teams up with Susamaru to ambush Tanjiro in Asakusa on Kibutsuji’s orders. He has eyes on both hands and can generate arrows that manipulate directional forces with his Blood Demon Art, making him dangerous in long-range combat.

While these arrows cannot deal damage themselves, once they have pierced an enemy, they can be used to either knock an opponent into the ground (which does deal damage) or they can be used on rocks to hurl at opponents. Players should keep these options in mind when playing as Yahaba.


Susamaru (voiced by Sarah Williams) is a demon with the appearance of a young girl who attacks Tanjiro in Asakusa alongside Yahaba. Using her powerful mari (decorative wire balls) she can keep her distance from any opponent. In-game, this makes her particularly strong against Demon Slayer Corps, who prefer close-range combat.

Susamari fights by hurling her mari at the enemy while actively moving across the field. They’re a great way to entice an opponent to slacken their vigilance and set up effective combos that can deal massive amounts of damage.

60 fps mode added

A new 60fps mode has also been added to the PlayStation 5 version of the game in this update. In this mode, the controllable sections of exploration and combat in Story mode and certain controllable sections in offline versus mode are playable in 60 fps.

In addition to these new playable demons and the 60fps mode, more online missions have been added to the game that players can complete to earn Kimetsu points and unlock new rewards such as new quotes and profile pictures.
