Today Yostar released a new trailer of its popular shipgirl-focused mobile game Azur Lane.
The trailer is about the new major event that will launch in the game tomorrow.
The event is titled Kouzen no Hokkai in Japanese, which translates in “Frozen Sea of the North” and focuses on shipgirls inspired by warships from the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union. At the moment of this writing, an English localization of the title has not been revealed yet.
Featured are Elite battleship Gangut, Elite destroyer Minsk, Super Rare light cruiser Chapayev, Elite Destroyer Grozny, Super Rare destroyer Tashkent and the Elite light cruiser Pamiat Merkuria, and Super Rare battleship Sovetskaya Rossiya.
