Today Azur Lane developer Yostar revealed even more content for the upcoming major event Skybound Oratorio.
Before we delve into the event itself, which is going to launch in Japan and China this week, we got a roadmap post for the English servers.
As expected, we’ll have a few weeks to wait before we get the new event in the west, while this week we’re going to receive a rerun of Iris of Light and Dark.
The post also describes a few new features.
Moving on to the event itself, we get a lovely anime-style trailer.
More new shipgirls have been revealed, including SSR heavy cruiser Algérie, elite light cruiser La Galissonnière, and a bunch of skins for some of the shipgirls.
We also get to see plenty of content and updates coming to celebrate the third anniversary of the game, including a new event area and minigame, the gallery and jukebox mode mentioned above, an increase to the dock limit, an anniversary skin for Cavalla, the tease of another event coming in early June, wedding skins for San Diego, Minneapolis, and San Diego, a retrofit for Helena, a new “open-world” system with new siren bosses for different regions, and a system to upgrade equipment.
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’re not into mobile games, Idea Factory International recently launche Azur Lane: Crosswave for PS4 and PC, even if we’re still waiting for the DLC to launch in the west, since we’ve heard nothing specific about when and how they will be released just yet.
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.
