Yostar has been revealing new shipgirls that will be added to its popular mobile game Azur Lane next week.
It’s worth mentioning that they’ll initially come only to the Japanese and Chinese servers, while the English servers will receive them in about a month.
They appear to be part of a new event themed after the Royal Navy.
The three shipgirls are Dido-class light cruiser Hermione (SSR), King George V-class battleship Howe (SSR), and I-class destroyer Icarus (Elite).
They’ll be voiced respectively by Hiroko Taguchi (Sumika Kagami in the Muv-Luv series, M.A.O (Arnice in Nights of Azure ad Narmaya in Granblue Fantasy), and Yuuki Takada (Rin Murasame in Code Vein and Hinako Shirai in Blue Reflection).
Depending on the size of the event, it’s quite possible that there will be more shipgirls revealed over the next few days.
You can check them out 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.
