Today Compile Heart released two new videos of the upcoming DLC for Azur Lane: Crosswave.
To be more precise, we get to see Episode Taihou, which is the first DLC featuring the ultra-yandere aircraft carrier.
Incidentally, the second video also showcases Saint Louis, who is one of the three support/secretary only shipgirls who will come with Taihou.
We already know that five DLC have been announced: the second DLC will be Formidable, the third will be Roon, the fourth will be Le Malin, and the fifth will be Sirius.
In the video, we get to see both battle gameplay and storytelling similar to the base game. The main difference is that Taihou is the protagonist, but the DLC doesn’t reinvent the wheel. It’ll be released this month, but the precise date is still unknown. Idea Factory International hasn’t provided info about the western release either.
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, if you’re interested in knowing whether the game is worth your time.
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.
