Gintama Rumble English Release Date Announced

October 16, 2017Written by Kite Stenbuck

Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia has published the English trailer for Gintama Rumble, as well as confirming that the release date for the English version of the game on PlayStation 4 will be January 18, 2018, which is exactly the same release date as the Japanese version. This English localization is intended for Southeast Asia and will have English subtitles with original Japanese voiceovers.

Gintama Rumble is a samurai rumble action game that plays much like a Dynasty Warriors or Samurai Warriors game. Players will get to control popular Gintama characters like Gintoki, Shinpachi, Kagura, Kotaro, and Shinsuke as they beat up a lot of enemies in the eight chapters of the Gintama Chronicle story.

Players in the English version will also get to hear Scramble, the theme song specifically made for Gintama Rumble by SPYAIR, as well as the day-one bonus of a DLC code to unlock Neo Armstrong Cyclone Jet Armstrong Cannon as assist attack. However, it will be missing out on the drama CD preorder bonus, and also the limited AV (Anime sound & Voice) edition with more theme songs from the Gintama anime as exclusive BGMs, which will be exclusive to the Japanese version. Gintama Rumble is also going to be released for PlayStation Vita, but it will be available only in Japan.

Note that as this English localization of Gintama Rumble will be released for the Southeast Asian countries of Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines, those in the West who are interested in getting this game would still need to import the Asian English copy or download with a PSN account based in one of the countries mentioned above.
