Today Yostar launched a new Crimson Echoes event in its popular mobile game Azur Lane, featuring new and returning shipgirls.
While the event has been simply called “Crimson Echoes Rerun” in the west, it includes plenty of new shipgirls, so it’s more of a boosted version of the past event from January 2019.
It even includes a couple of interesting “what if” scenarios, since it comes with battleships Kaga and Tosa.
Kaga was originally supposed to be the second Tosa-class battleship before being converted to an aircraft carrier, and Tosa was never completed in the real world.
You can check out the trailer below, showing both new and returning shipgirls (including fan-favorite Amagi) on top of a new set of swimsuit skins.
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 recently 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.
