A collaboration between the 5v5 MOBA Arena of Valor and the manga/anime series Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is starting on May 6th, developer TiMi Studio Group and publisher Level Infinite have announced. The partnership will include skins of Tanjiro and Nezuko, with their “classic powers and abilities,” usable with AOV characters Keera and Yan respectively.

To further incentivise fans, players can also participate in a special limited-time event for a chance to earn exciting rewards. After completing various in-game activities, players will obtain dice, which when rolled, will determine the number of steps they can take to advance. Once a full lap is completed, fans will unlock new themed rewards that include the Alice Skin “The Butterfly Mansion Girl”.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is popular among the target demographic of AoV, and exudes a passionate, brave, and fighting spirit against the enemies that is in line with the spirit of the MOBA. Through this latest collaboration, AoV hopes to deliver even more diverse and rich content to the players, alongside positive values worth upholding.
Having worked with IPs such as One Punch Man, BLEACH, and now, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, the AoV team will continue to seek out opportunities with other popular and high-quality IPs to bring more surprises to the players.
