Yostar is continuing to reveal more content coming to its popular shipgirl-focused mobile game Azur Lane.
First of all, we get to see a new “French” shipgirl, Vauquelin-class destroyer Tartu from the Vochiya Dominion faction.
The Vauquelin class was classified as “large” destroyers (the French liked their destroyers bigger in the thirties), which means that Tartu is represented in Azur Lane with a design that is certainly uncommon among most destroyers.
At the moment of this writing, she has only been confirmed for the Japanese and Chinese servers, so we’ll have to see if we’ll get her on the English servers as well, or if she’ll be involved by the recently-announced divergence from the Asian servers to make room for a major rerun.
Speaking of the English servers, we’re going to play catch-up, as we’re getting three skins that we’ve been missing for quite some time compared to the Japanese and Chinese servers. Those are for Chaser, Memphis, and Sussex. You can see them below.
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.
If you’re curious about the franchise’s popularity in Japan, you can check out my report about the recent anniversary event that pretty much literally invaded Akihabara.
