Demon Slayer: The Video Game was announced about a year ago, but only five characters have been officially confirmed for the game roster so far.
Murderer of demons is one of the most popular Shonen Jump properties ever created. The manga has broken sales records, the anime has reached rare levels of international popularity in part thanks to Netflix, and its film has set box office records in Japan and will soon hit US theaters. Considering Demon Slayer’s huge successes, the fact that he has his own video game sometime next year should come as no surprise. The world of Murderer of demons is full of rich and colorful characters, but even though it was announced just over a year ago, Demon Slayer: The Video Game’s The full list has yet to be announced.

The story of Murderer of demons follows young Tanjiro Kamado and his sister, Nezuko, who has turned into a demon. After discovering that his entire family has been killed, Tanjiro sets out to join the Demon Slayer’s body in hopes of finding a cure to turn his sister into a human. Tanjiro quickly discovers that the man who killed his family and changed his sister is the leader of the demon world, Muzan Kibutsuji. He vows to defeat Kibutsuji and rid the world of the demon’s curse once and for all.
Tanjiro and Nezuko meet tons of interesting and exciting characters in the course of their journey. Some are good, some are bad, but almost all of them would be valuable additions to Demon Slayer: The Video Game. It’s hard to say how big the final roster will be considering the lack of information currently available about the game, but so far, five Murderer of demons Characters have been confirmed. The already announced characters fall a bit more on the obvious side, but that only leaves the more exciting (and surprising) characters to be announced at a later date. Here are all the characters that have already been confirmed for Demon Slayer: The Video Game.
All confirmed characters in Demon Slayer: The Video Game
- Kamada plate
- Nezuko kamada
- Inosuke Hashibira
- Zenitsu Agatsuma
- Giyu Tomioka
These five characters essentially represent Demon Slayer’s main cast and are logical choices as the first characters announced for the game. Tanjiro, Nezuko, Inosuke, and Zenitsu are the main group the series follows, while Tomioka is the first Demon Slayer Tanjiro meets and helps set the entire story in motion. Tomioka is also in the Ten Hashira, the strongest of all the Demon Slayers. The Hashira would make welcome additions to the list, but it’s hard to say if they will actually be included. Demon Slayer: The Video Game It will follow the events of the anime’s first season, and while the Hashira have already been introduced to the anime, their fighting styles and abilities have yet to be fully revealed. Although each character would be perfect for the fighting game roster, they may not be playable in-game to avoid potential spoilers.
Most notable of the list of confirmed characters in the Demon Slayer: The Video Game it is the lack of demonic representation. Tanjiro and his friends defeat several powerful demons in the course of the anime’s first season. While including all of the demons from the anime’s first 26 episodes would be somewhat pointless, as many are not very prominent, the most memorable ones are likely to make their way onto the game’s roster.
Screenshots and promotional materials have already highlighted demons such as Kyogai, the Drum Demon, Susamaru, the Handball Demon, and Rui, the first member of the Twelve Kizuki that Tanjiro must face. All three will likely find their way onto the game’s roster, as well as various other demons, but it’s hard to tell how many others. All of the Twelve Kizuki aside from Rui will likely remain on the game roster to avoid spoilers (similar to Hashira), so it will be interesting to see what other demons will be playable. Fans eager to know more about Demon Slayer’s The next video game should keep an eye out for new trailers, as the game is scheduled for release in 2021.
