This paid DLC will be coming to the Versus Mode. A Switch port of Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles was confirmed in February, and will arrive on Nintendo’s hybrid platform on 10th June.
Here are the confirmed DLC fighters:
– Tengen Uzui

The Switch version of Demon Slayer can be purchased via the eShop and will also be available from Sega’s website in physical form. Pre-orders are now live and come with a bonus character unlock key for Kimetsu Academy Tanjiro Kamado.
Here’s a bit about this upcoming release that combines story, adventure and fighting elements into one exciting series based on the anime series. The Switch version will also include everything the other versions already have:
“Switch players can look forward to all the amazing features found on other platforms, including all the post-launch content added to the game like the six new playable characters—Rui, Akaza, Susamaru, Yahaba, Enmu, and Yushiro & Tamayo; new online missions that reward Kimetsu Points to unlock additional rewards; and all the balance changes made to the game’s combat.”
“It is the Taisho Period in Japan. Tanjiro, a kindhearted boy who sells charcoal for a living, finds his family slaughtered by a demon. To make matters worse, his younger sister Nezuko, the sole survivor, has been transformed into a demon herself. Though devastated by this grim reality, Tanjiro resolves to become a “demon slayer” so that he can turn his sister back into a human and kill the demon that massacred his family. A sorrowful tale of siblings in which the fates of humans and demons intertwine… begins now!”
