The trailer features the opening cutscene of the game and the theme song “Dawn of Freedom” perfomed by Saori Hayami, who voices the new heroine Shimakaze.

We get to see Shimakaze herself alongside the other new shipgirl Suruga, and plenty more including the starter destroyers Z23, Laffey, Ayanami, and Javelin. 

Of course fan-favorites like Bismark, and Takao also make an appearance. 

You can check it out below. 

If you want to learn more about Azur Lane: Crosswave, you should definitely read the interview we pubished a few weeks ago, in which Compile Heart President Norihisa Kochiwa talks in depth about the project.

You can also check out more screenshots of shipgirls revealed a few weeks ago a second batcha third onea fourtha fifth, a sixtha seventhan eighth, and a ninth, on top of the upcoming DLC shipgirls, and the latest gameplay in English.

The game releases tomorrow, February 13, on Steam both in North America and Europe, while the PS4 version will have staggered releases by regions: North America will get it on February 13 as well, while European players will have to wait for February 21.

For the moment, we don’t have specific release dates for the DLC either in Japan or in the west.
