Publisher Aniplex and developer CyberConnect2 have released new footage and screenshots for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles introducing characters Kimetsu Gakuen Tanjiro Kamado, Kimetsu Gakuen Nezuko Kamado, and Kimetsu Gakuen Giyu Tomioka, who are playable in the game’s “Versus Mode.”
Kimetsu Gakuen Tanjiro Kamado is a polite, but stubborn young man who will not remove his late father’s earrings even if it is against school regulations; Kimetsu Gakuen Nezuko Kamado is a girl with French bread in her mouth who cannot wake up at all in the early morning; and Kimetsu Gakuen Giyu Tomioka is a physical education teacher too Spartan to teach.
The following character visuals for the three characters were created by CyberConnect2 based on their in-game 3D models:
Aniplex previously introduced Murata, Tanjiro Kamado (Hinokami Kagura), Kyojuro Rengoku, Shinobu Kocho, Sabito, Makomo, Sakonji Urokodaki, Giyu Tomioka, Zenitsu Agatsuma, Inosuke Hashibira, Tanjiro Kamado, and Nezuko Kamado.
