If I were to guess, the image looks to be more of a cutscene or a QTE event rather than actual gameplay. The game is being developed by Furyu and a teaser site for the game is up.

    …These days, anime seems to follow a set pattern. If you have a successful series, you follow it up with a recap film. Most of the time, these films have something new in them—new footage, new characters, a new side story—but not Yamato 2199. It is completely unnecessary in every conceivable way.
