Following the shiny New Year event, the popular shipgirl-based mobile game Azur Lane is doing some catching up on the western server.
Publisher Yostar took to Twitter to reveal two new additions to your fleet coming soon (likely in the next update).
The first is the aircraft carrier Bunker Hill. This means that we’re also getting chapter 13, in which she drops.
The second addition is the retrofit for Hermes, which is good considering how often she drops.
If you’re unfamiliar with Azur Lane, it’s is a free-to-play mobile horizontal scrolling shooter/RPG hybrid currently available for iOS and Android.
If you’d like to learn more about it, you can read our recent interview with Yostar’s director of operations.
If your interest leans more towards console and PC games, Azur Lane: Crosswave has already been released for for PS4 in Japan, and it’s coming to the west in February with a PC version on top. You should definitely read the interview we pubished a few days ago, in which Compile Heart President Norihisa Kochiwa talks in depth about the project.
