Kimetsu no Yaiba Hinokami Keppuutan Inosuke Gameplay - Inosuke Has A Counter Skill?

Here's the brand new Kimetsu no Yaiba Hinokami Keppuutan (PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X) trailer, this time focusing on Inosuke Hashibira.

February 21, 2021

Inosuke Hashibira is the newest character introduced in Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba Hinokami Keppuutan (PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC via Steam).

CyberConnect2 and Aniplex launched on February 22 a new gameplay introduction video focusing on Inosuke. The gameplay trailer features a battle between Inosuke and Tanjiro. Fighting by dual-wielding swords, Inosuke seems to be both a hard hitter and a speedy attacker. He can unleash high-speed combos mixing sword slashes, kicks, and even an occasional charge.

Moreover, it looks like Inosuke has a counter ability of sorts.

When activated at the right moment, he seemingly nullifies the damage received, and automatically counterattacks. Overall, it seems pretty similar to the counter skill of most Fire Emblem characters in Smash Bros, to take a mainstream example. Lastly, it looks like Inosuke is the sole character revealed so far with that type of ability.

You can find the Inosuke trailer below, alongside some screenshots.

CyberConnect2 recently reexplained the battle system of Kimetsu no Yaiba Hinokami Keppuutan, following certain misunderstandings.

A Demon Slayer mobile game is also coming soon, Kimetsu no Yaiba Keppuu Kengeki Royale. However, while initially planned to launch in 2020, it was indefinitely delayed.
