Gintama: Gathering (银魂集结) is an exciting new mobile game based on the popular anime series Gintama. This upcoming game, developed by 7road Entertainment and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment with support from Aniplex, is set to be released in China.
For those unfamiliar with Gintama, it’s a unique blend of satire and action, taking place in Edo-period Japan and following the hilarious and adventurous escapades of our protagonists. With its long run, rivaling even One Piece in duration, Gintama masterfully balances laugh-out-loud comedy with a compelling story and thrilling action.
As of now, details about the gameplay of Gintama: Gathering remain scarce, and it’s too early to determine its exact nature upon release. However, the game has already opened a website for pre-registration in China and unveiled an impressive 3D visuals-packed trailer, featuring scenes from the anime’s early parts, including a heated battle between Gintoki and Katsura against Shunsuke Takasugi’s group on his ship.
Though the trailer didn’t showcase actual gameplay, one screenshot hinted at a possible gameplay style, resembling a 2D fighter with its in-engine rendering, suggesting that Gintama: Gathering may lean toward a traditional beat-em-up experience. Fans can anticipate an action-packed and humorous adventure in the world of Gintama as they await further updates about the game.
Stay tuned to Bandai Namco’s announcements to see if any more details will be revealed in the near future.
