First Game System Information Revealed

KanColle Kai is based on the original KanColle game system and concept, but a new user interface and controls have been introduced to make use of the PS Vita’s unique capabilities. Also the game has shifted a little in nature from the original edition more towards a simulation-style game. * Screenshots show mid-development content.

1. Strategy Screen
A Strategy Screen will be implemented for the first time in KanColle Kai.
You can see that the sea areas are depicted as large hexagons and the various fleet-like units as silhouettes. This Strategy Screen is one of KanColle Kai’s biggest special features. From the Strategy Screen you can transition to the more familiar Admiral Room.

2. End Turn / Movement
The Commands are placed on the left-hand side of the Strategy Screen.
As for the commands themselves, other than the familiar “Sortie,” you can also see the characters for “End Turn” and “Move.” KanColle Kai has been developed as a turn-based, stand-alone-type game.

3. Modification Screen
The familiar Modification Screen from the original version. A new monotone user interface has been introduced. Other than the Fleet Girls’ basic parameters, there are also the familiar “Fuel,” “Ammunition,” “Steel,” and “Bauxite” icons.

4. Changing Equipment

5. Transport Fleets / Sea Guard Units
You can dispatch Sea Guard Units to protect the Transport Fleets that connect the sea areas with your home ports.
