Azur Lane publisher Yostar is tricking down more information of upcoming content across the west and Japan.
Western players will finally be able to enjoy the release of U-47 next week, and with her we’re getting her super-cute “Rookie Rider” skin, which removes her shark jaw scarf and gives a better look at her bespectacled face.
You can see what she looks like below.
Looking at the Japanese servers we get more skins revealed for the idol-themed event that is kicking off next week and that hasn’t been confirmed for the west yet.
On top of that, we also learn that the idol skins for Z-23, Ayanami, and Laffey will be available as rentals.
If you’re unfamiliar with Azur Lane, it’s a free-to-play mobile horizontal scrolling shooter/RPG hybrid currently available for iOS and Android.
If you are interested in console games as well, Compile Heart and Felistella just released a brand new Azur Lane game titled Azur Lane: Crosswave for PS4 in Japan. It’s coming in the west next year.
If you’d like to learn more, you can read our recent interview with Yostar’s director of operations.
If you’re curious about the game’s popularity in Japan, you can check out my report about the recent anniversary event that pretty much literally invaded Akihabara.
