Gintama Rumble’s New Mode Has You Fighting to the Top
This issue of the Weekly Jump has revealed a new mode for Gintama Rumble. This new mode, called Top of the Kabuki District Mode, places the player character into a random spot of the map and tasks them to fight five battles in order to get to the top of the district. Gintama Rumble releases January 18, 2018 in Japan.
Gematsu provides more information on the Gintama Rumble mode:
In Top of the Kabuki District Rumble Mode, you will be able to freely select from all playable characters, and formidable enemies that appeared in “Long-Form Retrospective Rumble Mode” will appear again. You will be placed in a random position on the map in a stage of your choosing, and victory can be attained by winning all five battles. There is an original story for each character, and intrusion events may also occur.
We got additional information about Gintama Rumble last week! Learn more about special move and in-game pachinko:
In Gintama Rumble, characters will have a specific gauge for Special Move that will let them unleash it when filled out. Although these attacks are powerful, each character will have different methods to fill the gauge. And as you can see on the page, these Special Moves are so wacky, from Shinpachi literally turning into eyeglasses, Toshiro shooting a mayonnaise beam bazooka, Nobume kicking a can with full power, and Tsukuyo fighting while getting drunk.
Gintama Rumble will also have Gintama Pachinko, which is an in-game slot machine that does not require coins to play, but will instead activate when clearing missions that are marked with a Gintama Pachinko requirement slot. Once fulfilled, the Pachinko will be rolled to give varying effects, from advantageous ones like invulnerability, super armor, and huge attack boost, to highly detrimental ones such as turning on Mosaic Mode where the game screen will get pixelated badly.
Gintama Rumble releases in PlayStation 4 and Vita in Japan and Southeast Asia on January 18, 2018.
