Today Azur Lane publisher Yostar launched the newest major event in its popular shipgirl-focused mobile game, and it’s celebrating with a trailer.
The event is titled Dreamwaker’s Butterfly, and focuses on the Sakura Empire. This isn’t surprising considering that it celebrates the third anniversary of the launch of the game in Japan.
As announced a few days ago, the event introduces plenty of new shipgirls including ultra rare carrier Shinano, super rare battleship Kii, super rare destroyer Susutzuki, elite cruiser Kumano, elite ammo transport Kashino, elite carrier Chiyoda, and elite carrier Chitose. On top of them we’re also getting an ultra rare Bulin MKIII.
As usual, the trailer is quite lovely, and you can check it 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.
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.
If you’re not into mobile games, Idea Factory International recently launched Azur Lane: Crosswave for PS4 and PC, with a Nintendo Switch version released in Japan today. The western version will soon finally get the DLC shipgirls.
