KanColle Arcade (艦これアーケード) is an arcade adaptation of the web-based Free-to-Play game Kantai Collection (艦隊これくしょん), also known as KanColle. The game was repeatedly postponed several times from first announcement in February 2015.


KanColle is about organizing fleetships, that are represented as girls, to fight various enemies. The arcade version is an evolved version of the game, with actual physical cards. The cabinet has naval themed controls in the wheel and throttle, as well as a button to fire.

As the player plays the game they get more and more ships to build theri fleet, and also build as they get more resources to build their ships. The ships are divided into multiple types such as Destroyer, Battleships and Aircraft Carriers, and the player equips different weapons such as torpedoes or short range rapid fire guns. Each ship has their own stats such as how well they can traverse the sea and take down enemies and collect resources.

The player goes through different missions and setting up the right fleet with the right formation is how to clear the mission in the best possible way. The game starts deploying the ships and then start traveling the vague paths that the player sets them to, based on hints on the map. The battle is all but determined on how well the player formats their troops, uses the right ships, and also have have the right timing. After battle, the player is awarded more points to customize their ship and weapons, as well as equip items to use on battle.
