In another update that was featured on the PlayStation blog, a similar announcement was made about plans to release multiple free title updates once the game has launched. It doesn’t mention any details for what fans can expect, however, they do use an image of Rui, the primary antagonist in the Natagumo Mountain Arc, hinting he could be added to the game.
Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles is set to be released in North America and Europe on October 15 2021, one day after it will be released in Japan, and will be available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
