【2nd Free Update – Additional Playable Characters】

「Yahaba」 (CV: Jun Fukuyama)

At the order of Kibutsuji, Susamaru and Tanjiro visit Asakusa and attack the party. He is a blood demon with eyes on both palms and controls arrows for direction manipulation with blood demons.

Battle Features

Yahaba, who specializes in fighting from a distance using arrows. The arrow itself has no attack power, but let’s deal damage by hitting the opponent who was stabbed by the arrow into the ground or by attaching a rock to the arrow to blow it away.



Since Yahaba uses both “attacks that deal damage” and “attacks that do no damage”, it is important to know how much combo you can do, focusing on “attacks that deal damage”.

Skillfully distance yourself from the opponent with “Attacks that do no damage” and create gaps, and use combos focusing on “Attacks that deal damage” to inflict heavy damage on your opponent.



Combo Examples for Proficient Use of Yahava

● Technology (1) (△・Until additional input) > Skill(2) (→△) > Skill(1) (△・Up to additional input) > Skill(2) (→△)> Special Skill(1) (L1)

The special skill (1) has a high minimum damage even when used as a continuous attack, so it is optimal for the final blow of a combo.

● Technology (2) (→△) > Skill(1) (△・Until additional input) > Skill(2) (→△) > Skill(1) ( △・Until additional input) > Skill(2) (→△) >Special skill (2) (→L1) > Special Skills (1) (L1) > Mistakes (R2)

Parts of skills and special skills can be added or subtracted according to the remaining gauge. In actual combat, the situation of the full gauge is limited, but even if the number of techniques is reduced, high damage can be expected.

「Susamaru」 (CV: Mikako Komatsu)

At the command of Kibutsuji, they attack Tanjiro and his party who visited Asakusa with Yahaba. It is a blood demon in the form of a girl and attacks by throwing a powerful ball of color.


Battle Features

You can fight while keeping a distance from your opponent by using a powerful color ball. It can attack unilaterally from outside the gap without approaching strong opponents in close combat, including members of the Ghost Slayer.



It is a combat method that throws a ball of color while actively moving long and short distances, but if you aim for a combo based on a “kick” while keeping it in check, you can inflict great damage.



Combo example to use Susamaru skillfully

● Technology (3) (R1+△) > Tracking dash (○) > Air attack (→□) > (Landing) > Normal attack (□>□) > Skill (3) (R1+△・Press and hold) > Tracking dash (○) > Air Attack (□>□) > Skill (1) (△)

A powerful dash attack skill (3) startup combo.

● Technology (3) (R1+△) >> Normal attack (□>□) Special skill (2) (→L1) > Air attack (ground response) (→□) > (Landing) > Normal attack (□>□) > Skill (3) ) (R1+△・long press) > Normal attack (□) > Skill (2) (→△) > Misuse (R2)

The Oui Swordsman skill (2) needs to be used near the opponent, so activate it while pressing the left stick in the opponent’s direction. The cool figure that moves dynamically is also a point.
