Kan Colle Browser Game Adds More Warships

posted on by Karen Ressler
Teruzuki, Umikaze, Kazagumo, Mizuho, Libeccio, Kawakaze, Hayasui join game

The Kantai Collection -Kan Colle- browser game updated on Monday with seven new ships.

Hayasui (fleet oiler):

Teruzuki (destroyer):

Umikaze (destroyer):

Kazagumo (destroyer):

Mizuho (seaplane carrier):

Libeccio (destroyer):

Kawakaze (destroyer):

The staff at the "Dai-Ni-Kai 'Kan Colle' Kankanshiki" (2nd 'Kan Colle' Naval Review) event in Yokohama announced on Sunday that Iori Nomizu is voicing Hayasui. The event also showed footage for the upcoming PlayStation Vita game featuring German and Italian ships.

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 Japanese World War II warships such as aircraft carriers, battleships, and cruisers. Players build, organize, and repair their anthropomorphized fleet to progress through maps.

The PlayStation Vita game is now slated to ship in Japan on November 6 after being delayed twice.

The original game is inspired a television anime adaptation. The anime premiered in January. The franchise will get an anime film in 2016, and the television series will get a sequel. The anime's official Twitter account indicates that the movie and the sequel are separate projects that are going into production at the same time.
