Sega Introduces Kan Colle Arcade Game in 2 Videos

posted on by Egan Loo
Title inspired by hit browser game slated for fall

The official website for Sega's Kan Colle Arcade game began streaming an advertisement movie and an product introduction movie on Monday.

The game cabinet has controls modeled after a ship's wheel and engine order telegraph lever to control the timing of volleys and how the player fleet can search for enemy fleets. It also features 3D animated models of the characters. Like the original Kan Colle browser game, the game will have a home port interface where the player can manage resources and check the status of their ships.

Sega held location tests for the arcade game between January 23 and January 25 at the Club Sega Akihabara in Tokyo. Sega will formally launch the game this fall, after initially planning a summer release.

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.

A PlayStation Vita port of the game, directed by the original browser game's producer and director Kensuke Tanaka, is slated to debut in November 6.

The television anime of the mobile card game premiered in Japan on January 7, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it airs. The television anime finale revealed in March that the television anime would get a sequel. The franchise will also get an anime film in 2016. 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.
