Today Compile Heart announced a Nintendo Switch port for its shipgirl-focused action JRPG Azur Lane: Crosswave.
The game was originally launched in Japan only for PS4, with a PC port added for the recent western release.
Now it’s coming for Nintendo Switch with a release date in Japan set for September 17, 2020.
On top of that, the photo mode has been tweaked so that you can take pictures of six girls at the same time.
You can check out the first trailer and the opening animation below.
For the moment, Idea Factory International has not announced a western release. We’ll keep you update in case they do.
