Bandai Namco has updated the official website for Gintama Rumble with information on newly confirmed playable characters Isao Kondou, Toushirou Hijikata, and Sougo Okita.
Get the details below.
◆ Playable Characters
Commander of the Shinsengumi. His nickname is “Gorilla.” He admires his subordinates dearly, but also has a dangerous side in that he stalks Tae Shimura, who he loves.
The greatest power character. His attack speed is slow, but since he deals heavy blows, he can pulverize the enemy with various unique attacks. He can defeat enemies with force since his defense power and attack power are high.
Vice commander of the Shinsengumi, and extreme mayonnaise lover. He is the most straightforward person in the Shinsengumi. He is called and feared by those around him as the “Demon Vice Commander.”
He has wild attacks, and can move forward while attacking. For that reason, his ability to drag enemies into attacks is high, and during melees can overwhelm enemies with raging attacks. His physical strength and defense power are somewhat below average, but he is a reckless character with high attack power.
Shinsengumi First Division captain. A man with a handsome appearance and the soul of a masochist. He holds a grudge against Hijikata, and is always trying to kill him.
Sougo is characterized by his swift swordsmanship. While he does not move much, he can use consecutive raging attacks to defeat enemies while keeping them away. On the other hand, his defense power is low and his attack range is narrow, so he is a technical character that requires the proper use of techniques based on the situation.
Gintama Rumble will launch for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in Japan, as well as for PlayStation 4 with English subtitles in Southeast Asia, on January 18, 2018.
