PS4 Exclusive Azur Lane: Crosswave Reveals New Shipgirl Downes

Azur Lane: Crosswave

Today Compile Heart updated the official site of its upcoming action JRPG Azur Lane: Crosswave, revealing another shipgirl who will appear in the game

To be more precise, the new waifu is Downes, coming with a definitely fetching punk-like style.

Its namesake is the Mahan-class Destroyer DD-375 USS Downes, that served from 1937 to 1945, all the way through World War II, even if it was temporarily decommissioned in 1942 and recommissioned in 1943.

If you’re unfamiliar with Azur Lane, it’s a popular side-scrolling mobile game by Chinese studios Shanghai Manjuu and Xiamen Yongshi. It’s currently available in English courtesy of Yostar. The console version is in development by Felistella, which is known for the Genkai Tokki series.

You can check out a single image of Downes below. if you want to see more, you can also enjoy more screenshots introducing Kongou and Mikasa, an older gallery of images and a trailer.

Azur Lane: Crosswave will launch on the Japanese shelves on August 29 exclusively for PS4. At the moment no release has been announced either for North America or Europe, and we’ll have to wait and see if Idea Factory International brings it over. I certainly hope they do.
