During a livestream from Jump Festa, which is currently being hosted at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, near Tokyo, Bandai Namco Entertainment showcased the first gameplay of Gintama Rumble.

The gameplay showcased a level of the game and a boss battle against Doromizu Jirochou.

The game is a samurai action battle game pretty much similar to your usual Musou style, pitching various heroes from the Gintama series against large hordes of enemies, with a story mode spanning several arcs of the anime.

Playable characters include Gintoki Sakata, Shimpachi Shimura, Kagura, Kotaro Katsura, Shinsuke Takasugi, Tsukuyo, Kamui, Isao Kondo, Toshiro Hijikata, Sougo Okita, Nobume Imai.

You can check the recordings of the gameplay below. If you want to see more, you can enjoy an extensive trailer released recently showcasing pretty much all the features of the game, a commercial focusing on the Courtesan of a Nation Arc, another commercial focusing on the Torny Arcone more trailer, and the latest batch of 4K screenshots,

Gintama Rumble will release in both Japan and Asia on January 18th, and the Asian version will include English subtitles, granting pretty much everyone (who understands English) the ability to play the game even if they don’t understand any Japanese.

The Japanese version will come for PS4 and PS Vita, while the Asian release will launch exclusively for PS4.
