Yostar shared its plans for upcoming content in its popular shipgirl-focused mobile game Azur Lane.
We learn that the English servers will once again hold back for about a month on the new content coming on the Japanese and Chinese servers as it happened with the Skybound Oratorio event.
Once again, this makes room for a rerun of a popular past event, Ink-Stained Steel Sakura, which dates to over a year ago, so many newer players have missed it.
This means that we’ll get another chance to unlock many Sakura Empire shipgirls including Nagato, Kawakaze, Mutsu, Kongou, Haruna, Youizuki, Harutsuki, Ooshio, Fumizuki, and Asashio.
The event will start next week, likely on July 16. At the moment, we don’t know what the Japanese and Chinese servers will get instead.
You can check out the announcement 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’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.
