Today Idea Factory International released its shipgirl-focused game Azur Lane: Crosswave, and to celebrate they shared a launch trailer.
It’s worth mentioning that the game has launched only on PC in North America and Europe and on PS4 in North America, European PS4 players will have to wait for February 21.
The trailer provides a brief overview of the game, including battle and the RPG elements that are mostly modeled on the original mobile game but without the gacha element.
You can check it out below.
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 support shipgirls, the latest gameplay in English, and the opening cutscene.
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.
