Today publisher Yostar released the English-subtitled version of the anime-style trailer of the upcoming major event coming to Azur Lane.
The event is titled “Aurora Noctis” and was already released back in July on the Japanese and Chinese servers. It will debut on the English servers on Thursday, August 6.
It will feature six new Royal Navy shopgirls, Hermione, Howe, Icarus, Eagle, Perseus, and Valiant.
You can check out the trailer below alongside the English illustrations for the new shipgirls and skins.
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.
