Compile Heart updated the official site of Azur Lane: Crosswave with screenshots and details about the DLC coming for the game.
The screenshots feature the first and third shipgirls that will be added as DLC, Taihou and Roon.
Each DLC shipgirl will have her own fully-voiced scenario in which they will be the protagonist. They will also be available in the photo mode and extreme battle mode, and you can even perform the oath with them if you meet the conditions.
The other DLC shipgirls will be Formidable (second DLC), Le Malin (fourth DLC), and Sirius (fifth DLC).
Each of them will also come with three additional shipgirls that will be available in the game exclusively as secretaries and support fleet members.
You can catch the screenshots below and check out some gameplay from a little while ago.
If you want to learn more about Azur Lane: Crosswave, you should definitely read the interview we pubished a few weeks ago, in which Compile Heart President Norihisa Kochiwa talks in depth about the project. You can also check out more screenshots of shipgirls revealed a few weeks ago, a second batch, a third one, a fourth, a fifth, a sixth, a seventh, and an eighth.
The game releases on February 13 on Steam both in North America and Europe, while the PS4 version will have staggered releases by regions: North America will get it on February 13 as well, while European players will have to wait for February 21.
For the moment, we don’t have specific release dates for the DLC either in Japan or in the west.
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.
