The Azur Lane franchise has become more and more popular in Japan, rivaling the shipgirls of Kantai Collection, so it’s not too surprising that its console entry Azur Lane: Crosswave appears to be pretty popular.
Compile Heart announced on Twitter that things are going quite well on the pre-orders front.
The Tweet below mentions that the game for PS4 has been welcomed by pre-orders “beyond expectations.” On top of that, the limited edition is actually limited, so those who want it should pre-order before it’s too late.
Incidentally, you can also see Shimakaze’s figure that’s going to be included in the limited edition. She is a new shipgirl created specifically for the game.

It’ll certainly be interesting to see how the game will do when it comes out. Compile Heart’s titles don’t normally break the box office, but this time around they have a very popular IP in their hands.
If you want to see more of the game, you can also check out the latest screenshots and shipgirl reveal, more screenshots and gameplay details, the latest trailer, even more screenshots showing newcomers Suruga and Shimakaze, and the trailer that revealed them. More assets include the reveal of Downes, a screenshot of Kaga, additional screenshots introducing Kongou and Mikasa, an older gallery of images and the first trailer.
Azur Lane: Crosswave will launch on the Japanese shelves on August 29 exclusively for PS4. At the moment no release has been announced for either North America or Europe.
