Gin Tama Game Headed To PSP, Courtesy Of Namco Bandai

By Ishaan . August 25, 2012 . 1:30pm

Namco Bandai aren’t slowing down with their steady stream of anime games. Next on their list is a Gin Tama game for the PSP. This has been leaked via a new issue of Shounen Jump magazine in Japan, which will be published this week.


Gin Tama is a popular manga and anime series by Hideaki Sorachi that takes place in a sci-fi world with samurai and aliens. It’s something of a parody of shounen manga clichés, but with more dramatic themes to it as well.


Titled Gin Tama no Sugoroku, the game has no release date yet. Jump doesn’t provide any details either, but more details regarding the game will be announced in next week’s issue.

    I wanna at least play 1 gintama game…

  • konsama

    Awesome news, always wanted to know how a gintama game could be.

  • M’iau M’iaut

    Will be interesting to see if this plays safe with an actiony shonen anime game or goes after the female audience with some sort of pseudo-date sim.

      Announcing a pseudo date sim gintama game for female audience in Shonen Jump just seems alll odd, wouldnt that best be announced in their otome magazines instead?

    I’m hoping it’s a fighter of some sort.

    • Dyne

       No way it be a fighter, Gin Tama has no super moves in the manga/anime so there no way they could get one.

      • You’ve obviously never heard of “creative liberties” have you…

        • Internet is Crash

          It was mentioned in the anime that Namco Bandai was having trouble making a Gintama fighting game coz everyone doesnt have any special or unique attacks

          • Again, “creative liberties”.  Hell even Gintoki himself said he wished he had a bankai.

          • Dyne

             Your killing Gintama!

      • Gintoki COULD HAVE a Super Move/Special Move/Ultimate Attack, but remember the episode that Gintoki reject the special power from the spirit of his sword! (A parody of Bleach)!

      • pantsonadog

        All they would have to do is make his “super move” a sword combo and same with other characters that don’t have “super moves”.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Oh sweet jesus, yes. I’ve been waiting for a new Gintama game for so long.

  • epy

    Gintama Musou!

  • Muddied_Waters

    Sugoroku is a type of board game.  Seeing as it’s Gintama, I’m sure it’ll be full of weird and quirky humor, but best not to get your hopes up on it being a fighter/RPG/anything else.

    Well, that’s not to say it can’t be a board game-video game with fighter/RPG/whatever elements, but yeah.

  • WingsOfEternity

    It’s funny because in one of the recent episodes in the new season Gintoki jokes about the lack of Gintama games and how Namco Bandai doesn’t care about them

  • Tales_of_Master

    D..D..D…..DONDAKE!!!! A new Gintama video game ?? NB didn’t forsake you yet Gin-chan. And here I was bummed out because of the multiple hiatuses the anime has been going through in the past few years. Here is hoping for this game to be actually good.

    •  well the anime was very close to the manga so its either hiatuses or end the show for good…and i’m ok with hiatuses

  • Göran Isacson

    I kind of hope for some extremely bizarre point and click slash platformer game which is occasionally interrupted for strangely serious beat-em-up action… and then when it’s over everyone mocks Shinpachi and things go back to being business like usual.

    Barring that, just find some way to simulate the battle for toilet paper in that one chapter. I could die a satisfied man if I got to simulate that episode, and that episode alone.

    Namco-Bandai doing a Gintama game… It looks like Kaguras’s letter DID reach them…
