Azur Lane publisher Yostar is continuing to reveal new content coming to its popular shipgirl-focused game Azur Lane.
First of all, we get two retrofits on the English servers, part of the gradual process of catching up to the Chinese and Japanese servers.
They’re Yuugure and Shigure, whom you can see below in their new forms.
The other bit of news may feel a bit surprising, and it’s a collaboration with Kinokuniya USA.
If you didn’t expect a shipgirl game to collaborate with a book retailer, welcome to the club, but this is a real thing.
The collaboration will feature an in-game event and a skin for Z23. She already has a teacher skin, so I guess the new librarian skin is only fitting.
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 just been released for PS4 and PC. You should definitely read the interview we pubished a few weeks ago ago, in which Compile Heart President Norihisa Kochiwa talks in depth about the project, and check out our full review.
