Today Yostar announced its plans for the 3rd-anniversary celebration of its popular shipgirl mobile game Azur Lane in Japan.
The climax of the celebration will be a massive livestream lasting 25 hours from September 12, 2020 at 8:00 pm Japan time to September 13 at 9:00.
It’ll be livestreamed both on YouTube and Periscope.
The specific schedule has not been announced, but there will be new merchandise and a fan art segment.
Considering that Japan is basically the most relevant market for the game, we can likely expect plenty of news on new content during the livestream.
Of course, that’s likely to come to the English servers as well, either at the same time or a bit later.
The English version of the game recently celebrated its second anniversary.
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. The western version will soon finally get the DLC shipgirls.
