Kan Colle Kai still underway.

Kan Colle Kai

You’ll hear more about Kan Colle Kai for PS Vita this fall, series staff said on Twitter.

The PS Vita game, an adaptation of the popular browser game Kantai Collection, was first announced alongside a TV anime in September last year.

    Oho, if this could sell those atrocious Windows RT devices I hope it boosts Vita sales.

    I’m still wondering how it plays. If it’s just like the browser game, I’m not going to bother buying it. I’ll just stick with that since it’s free anyway :p

    • Kevadu

      I’ve spent 7000 yen on the browser game…

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        Yeah, but I don’t need those extra docks, lol. I’ll just wait however long it takes to repair.

        • Kevadu

          Repair docks are useful but they’re not where most of my money has gone. Honestly I only bought one extra…pretty sure most people who have put as much into the game as me have bought two. But I’m sitting on like 700 buckets so I don’t really see the need.

          No, what I’ve spent the most money on is dock expansions to increase the number of ships I can hold. 100 is plenty when you’re starting out, but when you’ve collected as much as I have (i.e., nearly everyone) then you really start feeling the need for more space. There are more than 100 kanmusume, after all. And even if you don’t keep the common destroyers and stuff, it can be useful to have duplicates of subs for expeditions, it’s nice to be able to stock ships to use as modernization material, etc. Space becomes crucial.

          Then there’s the whole marriage system thing. Seems silly at first, but once a kanmusume has hit level 99 it feels really wasteful to just not level her anymore. Especially since the ones you actually get to 99 tend to be, by nature, the ones you like to use the most. Sure you get one freebie, but after that you’ve got to pay…

          Basically I feel like most of the things I’ve spent money on don’t really kick in until after you’ve been playing for quite a while. Sure when you’re first starting out it’s easy enough to not spend anything, but as a veteran teitoku it feels a lot tougher. I know I’m going to spend even more on it…I’ve got Yamato at level 99 right now and eventually I’m going to give in and pay…

      The Vita version is not free after all ?

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        I don’t think so?

        • Duc PC-QB

          I tried searching wiki and found something interesting lol:
          “In March 2014, financial analyst Fukuda Sōichirō of Citigroup Global Markets Japan
          made the prediction in a stock investor report that the PS Vita game would ship 500,000 copies, and expects that a profit of 1 billion yen be made. He also cites the ability to charge players for in-game premium
          items on the PS Vita platform as an upside for Kadokawa Corporation

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            He must be out of his damn mind.

          • Kevadu

            That sounds like a whole lot of speculation. I don’t think Kadokawa Games have actually said anything about what the pricing model is going to be. Well, they’ve barely said anything about the game at all, other than the occasional reminder that it does, in fact, exist…

  • AlphaSixNine

    I hope it’s not like the original browser game. Maybe Advanced Wars style? Anyway… still interested to see how this’ll turn out.

  • Reki Honoo

    I really want this to be localized. Might have a high chance if the anime gets a dub in north america

    • Renaldi Saputra

      maybe only XSeed or NISA or Aksys who have a will to localize

  • Boldmonk

    Give me quality graphics and gameplay and I’ll buy

  • Duo Maxwell

    Took them 1 year to let us know a little bit more news? What the heck did they do all this time?

  • Shippoyasha

    Some of the sexiest character designs in the business. I just hope they have a plan for the gameplay.

  • fyi1191

    When Touhou refuses to set sail overseas, Kancolle here is readying their ships.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Finally. Can’t wait to hear more about it.

  • LordKaiser

    I’m so sleepy that I saw Hentai instead of Kaintai. Later guys. G night.

    • cklambo

  • Luna Kazemaru

    • M’iau M’iaut
