Bandai Namco released today three new images of its upcoming Gintama game titled Gintama Ranbu.
We get to see a high resolution 4K screenshot of the gameplay, and two images showing protagonist Sakata Gintoki in two different outfits.
The game is defined a “samurai fighting action” game, and from the little we have seen so far, including today’s screenshots, that seems to be Bandai Namco’s way of saying that it’s a Musou/Warriors-like game, not unlike quite a few released for the One Piece series.
Besides Sakata Gintoki, recently we got a reveal of more characters that will appear in the game, female heroine Kagura, and Shinpachi Shimura.
The game is based on Gintama, a popular shonen manga series by Hideaki Sorachi, currently serialized on Shonen Jump. After its successful debut in 2003, it has been adapted into an anime series that counts over 300 episodes, which launched in 2006. It’s one of the most popular shonen manga in Japan, alongside titles like Dragon Ball, Bleach and Naruto. Multiple feature films (including a live action one) and OVA releases for the home video market have also been released.
Below you can check out a the new images. If you want to see more, you can also watch the first English trailer for the Asian market. The game will launch for PS4 and PS Vita in Japan, and exclusively for PS4 (with English subtitles) in Asia.
