Gintama Ranbu

The official title of Gintama: Project Last Game, Bandai Namco’s recently announced Gintama game for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, is Gintama Ranbu, the latest issue of Weekly Jump reveals. Its genre is “samurai melee action.”

Both Shimura Shinpachi and Kagura will be playable. Shinpachi attacks using a sword, but may also have a non-sword-based attack method. Kagura uses an umbrella to perform aerial attacks, and can also use kicking techniques.

The Kabuki District and Shinsengumi Headquarters are just a couple of the locations that will be completely reproduced in the game as stages.

The magazine also reveals that Gintoki’s Shiroyasha outfit will appear in the game. A blurb reads, “Fight through the Joui War with the Shiroyasha outfit!”

Gintama Ranbu 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. A release date has yet to be announced.
