Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 fans are getting hyped by the day as the next DLC pack for the game is drawing near, and to build even more excitement Bandai Namco have announced another character releasing in the upcoming Ultra Pack 1.

Xenoverse 2 has been a hit with players since it released way back in October 2016, but has been noticeably losing developer support as more Dragon Ball titles launched since.

“Such a POS character and by far the WORSE in the whole franchise,” Kami Cooper said on the Facebook announcement. “Also it should of been Caulifla, Full Power Bojack SSB Shinka Vegeta, Super 13, Garlic Jr. Roshi or GOD Toppo or just make Xenoverse 3 with more Heroes characters like Xeno, Dark Empire or Cumber and Fu in it.”

Russian cosplayer Melissa ‘gardeeva_melissa‘ brought the cursed protagonist to life with a costume she posted on Instagram. The artist posed next to flowers in the character’s signature pink patterned yukata, and her kimono which drapes over her shoulders.

Melissa faithfully captured Nezuko’s look, perfectly mirroring her flowing black hair, which turns vermillion at the bottom in curls. She even depicted her pale pink eyes, which is the color they change to after the heroine is turned into a demon.

The Demon Slayer cosplayer shared another photo of the outfit and showed off her bamboo gag accessory. In the series, Nezuko uses the item to chew on in order to control her urge to attack humans. Photographer ‘del_phot_o‘ captured the Russian artist biting down on the prop.

As if that wasn’t impressive enough, Gardeeva created a video portraying the anime protagonist. The cosplayer really does look like Nezuko as she moves her striking pink eyes around.
