Gintama Rumble Gets New Story Mode
According to the latest issue of Shonen Jump, Gintama Rumble will have an eight chapter story mode called “Long-Form Retrospective Rumble Mode” included in the game.
According to the weekly manga, the “Benizakura Chapter” is just one of the chapters that appear. It is set to feature a Gintoki equipped with Tetsuko’s sword and Katsura in his Benizakura Chapter outfit. Nizou Okada will also appear in the chapter as a boss character.
The story mode is supposedly made up of adventure parts that will advance the story. The narration of the game will be done by MADAO (Hasegawa Taizou).
While not a whole lot of Gintama Rumble is known, here’s what we know for sure:
Bandai Namco Entertainment has today officially confirmed that Gintama: Project Last Game will now have the final title of Gintama Ranbu. It will be released for PS4 and PS Vita. The teaser site for Gintama: Project Last Game has also been updated with the new title, and it reiterates that Gintama Ranbu will indeed become Gintama‘s last video game.
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.
Gintama Rumble will launch for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in Japan, as well as for PlayStation 4 in Southeast Asia (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines and Indonesia) with English subtitles.
