Today Compile Heart announced the first sales data of Azur Lane: Crosswave.
According to the announcement, the game has shipped over 200,000 copies worldwide following the Japanese release for Nintendo Switch, which happened today.
This includes all versions, with only the PS4 and PC releases available in the west so far. Of course, both physical shipments to retailers and digital sales are counted.
It’s worth mentioning that Idea Factory International hasn’t said a word yet about a western release for Nintendo’s console. We’ll have to wait for further news on that. That being said, we’re at least getting the DLC shipgirls soon.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Azur Lane franchise, it’s originally a free-to-play mobile horizontal scrolling shooter/RPG hybrid currently available for iOS and Android.
Recently, the game celebrated its third anniversary in Japan and you can check out the music video featuring popular musician T.M.Revolution and an anime-style trailer.
You can also enjoy the news about the next major event that will be released with tomorrow’s update of the mobile game.
