Devs have tweeted about Spring, but didn't clarify yet if they mean she will appear in Spring event, or after Spring event. I personally assume she will be the equivalent of Roma from last Spring, rare drop on boss/preboss node in last map...
Can we NOT discuss anything about Iowa or any other speculated foreign ships on this forum thread? there are several other areas where it maybe more appropriate to discuss and this thread is not one of them. For instance, Iowa page or search for foreign ships inclusion into KC using the search bar.
Yamato seasonal voice lines! Gee, I know Musashi said "Yamato can be shy" but this level of shyness is a bit overdoing it, eh devs? (Also here's hoping Ayana Taketatsu pulls a more mature-sounding voice. Yamato on my very first impression of her even before the anime and I started playing was kinda shocking to me) :v
Satsuki Kai Ni!! Had I foreseen this nine months ago (30th July, 2015) when I first joined KanColle I would've kept her! Now my No.2 ID belongs only to that Satsuki I've used in modernization to make up more space. ;_; Oh well no use crying over spilt milk. Once I manage to have space to accommodate her and a few more shipgirls I have to give up I'll raise her like how I'd raise a cat.
I recalled someone long ago mentioned that IJN also had a dedicated seaplane fighter.
Perhaps this is the beginning of the age of Aviation Battleships?
IIRC, originally the Ises were supposed to do that in order to make up for the losses in Midway hence their conversion into BBVs, and so far in-game they (and the Fusous) have been dedicated seaplane carriers.
We're already in the age of Aviation Battleships (lol), but we're also about to go into a new era of Aviation Battleships (lolololol).
I hope these new implementations mean something interesting for our star BBVs as well.
