Today Compile Heart updated the official site of Azur Lane: Crosswave with more screenshots and details about the first DLC for the game.
While the DLC will focus on Taihou who will become playable, but we learn that three more shipgirls will be included as support and secretaries.
Those are Jean Bart and Dunkerque from the Vichya Dominion and Iris Libre’s Saint Louis.
We also get to see the first screenshots from the story of the DLC, which will feature Taihou as a protagonist.
We already know that the following DLC will feature in order Formidable, Roon, Le Malin, and Sirius. Each will include three more support/secretary shipgirls, but they have not been revealed yet.
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.
We also have our review fresh from yesterday.
You can then 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, an eighth, and a ninth, on top of more screenshots of the upcoming DLC shipgirls, and the latest gameplay in English.
The game releases tomorrow, 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.
