“Kantai Collection”, abbreviated as “KanColle”, is a free-to-play browser-based social card game where “kanmusu”, moe characters based on World War II Japanese naval warships, do battle. A TV anime adaptation of the popular game will be released this year.
The costume sets, based on battleship characters Kongo, Hiei, Haruna, and Kirishima, also known as the “Kongo-class sisters” by Japanese fans due to their ship classification and similarity, follow last year’s release of a costume based on destroyer Shimakaze. Much like the previous release, the upcoming costumes are modeled by famous cosplayer and tarot enthusiast Nagisa.
The upcoming costume releases include a Kongo-class coat set (43,000 yen, plus tax), Kongo skirt (17,000 yen, plus tax), Haruna skirt (17,000 yen, plus tax), Kongo-class hair ornaments (6,800 yen, plus tax), and Kongo-class 3-centimeter brass buttons (1,600 yen, plus tax).
The costumes will be released in late May.
