Sega's Kantai Collection -Kan Colle- arcade game adaptation of DMM.com's free-to-play browser game planned to launch last summer. The game experienced some hiccups and another round of test cabinets appeared in three locations on February 10 with hopes for release this spring. The cabinets utilize character cards which unlock battle scenes to show off their respective characters.
Cards have been released ahead of the arcade game launch at test cabinets and special events. Yahoo! Auctions seller altmystar, like any good entrepreneur, put a rare holographic Haruna up for sale to see what kind of return they could get for it. The starting price was 40,000 yen (US$357) but that quickly doubled. The card sold for 84,000 yen (US$750).
Other Kantai Collection Arcade cards are also up for auction for prices ranging from 800 yen (Sendai) to 15,000 yen (Yūdachi). Holographic cards are pulling larger numbers. A holographic Kirishima and Kaga are also up for auction for 60,000 (US$535) and 70,000 yen (US$624).
The official Kantai Collection Arcade website also updated this week showing voice actresses Saki Fujita (Akagi) and Yuka Ōtsubo (Kitakami, Ooi) testing out the game.
