Azur Lane fans in Japan and China were able to enjoy the Skyboud Oratorio event a few weeks ago. Soon English-speakers will join them.
The announcement was made by Yostar on its official Twitter account with a look at some of the shipgirls coming with the event.
We’re getting Richelieu, Algérie, La Galissonnière, Jeanne D’Arc, Vauquelin, and Béarn, all inspired by historical French ships.
On top of that, we’re also getting a batch of new skins, mostly from the French faction but also from others like Z23.
In case you missed it, you can enjoy the trailer of Skybound Oratorio in Japanese. We’re likely getting a subtitled version when the event starts on Thursday.
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 launched Azur Lane: Crosswave for PS4 and PC, with a Nintendo Switch version coming down the line. We’re also still waiting for the DLC in the west.
