Android Version Of KanColle Is Very Close…

KanColle is a hugely popular series in Japan, not just as an anime, PS Vita game and browser game but also it’s perfectly suited to the mobile platform.

At last year’s Tokyo Game Show, the mobile phone version of KanColle was shown, specifically how you’ll be able to link your browser in game data to your phone for on the go seamless action on Android devices. According to the Twitter page of the Combined Fleet Naval District, pre-registration will start on February 29, 2016.

More importantly, this new update is introducing some girls/warships. The new campaign is called the Western New Guinea campaign and introduces three new Japanese girls/warships and one German ship. First up is Asagumo who happens to be an Asashio-class Destroyer. Then there’s Nowaki, a Kagerou-class Destroyer while Akizuki is an Akizuki-class Destroyer and then there’s Prinz Eugen, an Admiral Hipper-class Heavy Cruiser. Pics are below so you can get a good look at the new characters. I wonder if these ones will be in the recently announced anime?

KanColle Game Sees Delay

In a move that will upset fans of this series, the KanColle (Kantai Collection) game for the PS Vita has been delayed. The game was originally scheduled for release on the PS Vita sometime during the Autumn of 2014 but has now been pushed back to Spring 2015. The announcement was made by Kadokawa Games with the producer, Kensuke Tanaka, saying that they would like the opportunity to do more “advanced things” with the game.
