Game Watch also has a bit more information about the game, as well as a couple of screenshots to accompany it. Other than the series’ main protagonist Sakata Gintoki, two more characters have been also confirmed to be playable in the game, which are Shimura Shinpachi and Kagura. The Jump magazine also has an information not included in this news that Gintoki will also have his Shiroyasha attire available.

Gintama Ranbu‘s genre is dubbed Samurai War Action, and based on the screenshot below, where Kagura is shown launching a flashy attack on numerous enemies, we are assuming that this game may have a Dynasty Warriors-style gameplay.
