■ Characters

◆ Playable Characters

Isao Kondou

Gintama Rumble

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.

—Battle Style

Gintama Rumble

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.

Toushirou Hijikata

Gintama Rumble

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.”

—Battle Style

Gintama Rumble

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.

Sougo Okita

Gintama Rumble

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.

—Battle Style

Gintama Rumble

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.
