Gintama Rumble will launch for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in Japan on January 18, 2018 the latest issue of Weekly Jump reveals. The PlayStation 4 version will cost 7,600 yen and the PS Vita version will cost 6,800 yen.

A limited “AV Edition” will also be available for 10,600 yen on PlayStation 4 and 9,800 yen on PS Vita. It will include a 16-song selection from the opening and ending themes of the television anime, which can be used as in-game background music, as well as 60 exclusive “Signature Phrases.”

Pre-orders will include a “Signature Phrase Device” drama CD. Early purchases will include a download code to use the “Neo Armstrong Cyclone Jet Armstrong Cannon” in the game.

Outside of release information, the magazine has a look at the game’s “Awakening Rumble” system. After building up a gauge, you can trigger an Awakening, during which you can kick about enemies. Building up the gauge will change the screen to look like an ink-style painting. You will also be able to customize the lines and scene of the Awakening’s finishing cut.

Finally, the magazine reveals that Gintama Rumble will have a collaboration with Japanese rock band Spyair in the form of a song titled “Scramble.”

An Asian English release of the PlayStation 4 version of Gintama Rumble is also planned, but a release date has yet to be announced.
