Bandai Namco has confirmed that Gintama: Project Last Game will launch in an English version in Southeast Asia (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, and Indonesia) in addition to its release in native Japan. This naturally accounts for both digital and physical versions on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita later this year.

All that is known of Gintama: Project Last Game is that it is “the first full-scale action game project” in the Gintama franchise. With no additional gameplay details known, Bandai Namco is sweetening the deal for fans by asking them to vote on their preferred early buyer bonus download content. This voting only applies to Japan and other Southeast Asian territories receiving the game, and will last over the next four weeks.

Gintama: Project Last Game

The Gintama franchise started life not as a game, but as a serialized manga in 2003, created by Hideaki Sorachi. An anime has been running since 2006 and currently streams in America via Crunchyroll, while the manga is under license from Viz Media. Despite the English version of Project Last Game launching in Southeast Asia, no launch in the West (Europe, North America) has been announced. For those wayward fans, both PS4 and Vita are region free, negating the issue somewhat.

    I am thankful for region free. I would never have played some games without it. Glad even Nintendo jumped on board with the switch, the first region free system since the ds.
