The official Twitter account of the staff for the KanColle (Kantai Collection) PC browser game announced on Monday that Kadokawa Games' KanColle Kai PlayStation Vita game is finished development. The release date is still set for February 18.
The game was previously slated to ship last November, but Kadokawa Games announced in October that the release was delayed to February 18. Kadokawa Games explained that since the company planned to add more volume to the game than originally planned, it needed the extra time to make adjustments to the final development.
Kadokawa Games previously streamed the game's second trailer.
Those who purchase the first edition of the game will get a new "Valentine Resource" clear file bundled with the game.
Kadokawa Games launched the original free-to-play browser game with the service provider DMM.com in April 2013. In the game, players compete with cards featuring female moe characters inspired by World War II combat and utility vessels such as aircraft carriers, submarines, battleships, and cruisers. Players build, organize, and repair their anthropomorphized fleet to progress through maps. The game includes characters based on ships from the Imperial Japanese Navy, the German Kriegsmarine, and Italy's Regia Marina.
The original game inspired a television anime adaptation that premiered in January 2015. The final episode of the television anime series had revealed in March that the television anime would get a sequel. The game is also inspiring an anime film that will open in 2016. The sequel and the anime film are separate projects that are going into production at the same time.
