Bandai Namco has released a new Japanese TV ad for the upcoming Gintama Rumble, releasing January 18 on PlayStation 4 and Vita. This video gives a quick peek at one of the arcs present in the Story Mode, the Courtesan of a Nation arc. Like any Japanese TV spot it’s short but sweet, and provides a nice snapshot of the action game.

That’s not all we have on Gintama Rumble, however! Check out the crazy special moves you’ll be able to pull off, and the game’s inclusion of Pachinkos:
In Gintama Rumble, characters will have a specific gauge for Special Move that will let them unleash it when filled out. Although these attacks are powerful, each character will have different methods to fill the gauge. And as you can see on the page, these Special Moves are so wacky, from Shinpachi literally turning into eyeglasses, Toshiro shooting a mayonnaise beam bazooka, Nobume kicking a can with full power, and Tsukuyo fighting while getting drunk.
Gintama Rumble will also have Gintama Pachinko, which is an in-game slot machine that does not require coins to play, but will instead activate when clearing missions that are marked with a Gintama Pachinko requirement slot. Once fulfilled, the Pachinko will be rolled to give varying effects, from advantageous ones like invulnerability, super armor, and huge attack boost, to highly detrimental ones such as turning on Mosaic Mode where the game screen will get pixelated badly.
Gintama Rumble releases January 18 on PlayStation 4 and Vita in Japan, and the same date on PlayStation 4 only in Southeast Asia, which will be in English.
