Who Are the New Demon Slayer DLC Characters?

The seven new Demon Slayer DLC characters include several alternate forms for existing characters alongside some brand-new fighters according to a press release; this DLC largely focuses on the Entertainment District Arc. Here's what's on the way:

 
 
  • Tengen Uzui - A major ally and supporting character in the Entertainment District Arc and a former member of the Demon Slayer Corps.
  • Nezuko (Advanced Demon Form) - No image was shared, but presumably this is the "adult" version of Nezuko that appears when her powers amp up.
  • Tanjiro (Entertainment District) - An alternate version of Tanjiro from the Entertainment District Arc.
  • Zenitsu (Entertainment District) - An alternate version of Zenitsu from the Entertainment District Arc.
  • Inosuke (Entertainment District) - An alternate version of Inosuke from the Entertainment District Arc.
  • Daki - One of the villains introduced in the Entertainment District Arc. She's the sister of Gyutaro and effectively shares a body with him.
  • Gyutaro - One of the villains introduced in the Entertainment District Arc. He's the brother of Daki and effectively shares a body with him.

Each new character will be available for purchase in a series of updates starting in Summer 2022; more details will be shared about these characters and their pricing in the coming weeks and months.
