Demon Slayer’s next season is one of the most anticipated shows of 2023, and now, it finally has a release date. During a recent live stream, Demon Slayer: Swordsmith Village Arc got a new key visual and trailer that revealed its April release date.
The stream also revealed interesting details about the show’s first episode which will be longer than expected. Plus, the trailer also previews the upcoming opening song.
Swordsmith Village Gets Key Visual, New Trailer
While we’ve already seen several posters for the season, Swordsmith Village finally got its official visual.
After being shown on the stream, the show’s official Twitter account also released it for everyone to see.
The main character, Tanjiro Kamado, is front and center in the new visual, and below him are Mitsuri Kanroji and Muichiro Tokito.
Other characters such as Nezuko, Genya, and several Twelve Kizuki members also feature prominently.
Fans noticed that the supporting duo, Zenitsu and Inosuke, are missing from the visual.
This makes sense given that while they will appear, Tanjiro and Nezuko will be the primary focus of the new arc.
Along with the visual, we also got a new trailer for the upcoming season which you can watch here:
This new trailer shows off more action, including Nezuko’s Demon Form and Tanjiro’s Hinokami Kagura, implying that they will face off against strong foes.
Also previewed in the trailer is the opening theme song entitled Kizuna no Kiseki by MAN WITH A MISSION and milet.
