The playable cast for the upcoming Demon Slayer game just keeps expanding. It was recently announced Murata will be joining the fight in Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles.
Unlike some of his other buddies from the Demon Slayer Corp, Murata is somewhat unremarkable. However, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have any fight in him. Murata uses the Water Breathing technique but can’t be seen unlike other users of the technique, such as Tanjiro and Sabito.
The upcoming Demon Slayer game is developed by CyberConnect2, the studio that brought Goku’s incredibly popular adventure to consoles and PC in the form of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. It will feature a “Solo Mode” which allows you to play through events that occur in the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba anime. There is also the “Versus Mode” which allows you to pick your favorite character from the series and go head-to-head on the battlefield against another player locally or online.
Murata is the eleventh playable character to join the Demon Slayer game’s ever-expanding roster. Here is the full updated list of its playable characters:
Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles, also known as Kimetsu no Yaiba: Hinokami Keppūtan, will launch sometime in 2021 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam in Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea, and Southeast Asia. A North America release has yet to be announced.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba began as a manga series written and illustrated by Koyoharu Gotouge. It was serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump from February 2016 to May 2020. An anime television adaptation aired between April and September of 2019. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train, a sequel to that anime series, was released in North America last month. It garnered $19.5 million in its first weekend.
