    Decoder: Will Guadalcanal be playable for either side.

    I do not think the developers have released any information regarding the campaign maps, since it was mostly landing operation for the US in mid part of the war... And if the Japanese had won the Midway, this battle doesn't even take place, so my hypothesis is that the map will be dropped from the campaign.

    But then in American Campaign, might be possible, since the IJN Task force 8 (4 heavy cruisers, 8 destroyers) came to the area in search of the supply convoy for the American landing force, so maybe a mission where the player has to protect the landing/supply vessels from the IJN warships.

    So there's slight chance that it is in.

    on Guadalcanal, it could be nice to support the landing troops with naval bombardement and/or planes to bomb it
