Today Idea Factory international showcased more gameplay of the upcoming shipgirl-focused game by Compile Heart Azur Lane: Crosswave.
This time around, we get to see the flow of the game, including battle gameplay.
Interestingly, at the end of the stream we also heard that an announcement is coming tomorrow.
Incidentally, the game was played live on PS4.
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, an eighth, and a ninth, on top of the upcoming DLC shipgirls.
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.
