Tomorrow Azur Lane players in the west will be able to enjoy the classic event The War God’s Return, and Yostar is celebrating.
In order to properly usher the event, the publisher released a new trailer mostly focusing on the two major shipgirls that will be added to the English servers, SSR battleship Mikasa and elite battlecruiser Hiei.
We’re also getting destroyers Kuroshio, Oyashio, and Hamakaze, who will also have a retrofit.
You can check out the trailer below.
We also get the full patch notes, through which we learn that Yuubari will be added permanently to the construction pool.
Considering that we’ve waited for nearly two years for the arrival of Mikasa and Hiei, it feels good to be in sight of the finish line.
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.
