PS4 Exclusive Azur Lane: Crosswave Gets New Screenshots, Introduces Playable Waifus

Azur Lane Crosswave

Today Compile Heart released a new batch of screenshots and artwork of its upcoming game Azur Lane: Crosswave.

We get to see eight of the playable characters that will make an appearance in the game. Those are Akagi, Ayanami, Kaga, Javelin, Z23, Ping Hai, Prinz Eugen, and Laffey.

If you’re unfamiliar with the name Azur Lane, it’s a popular side-scrolling mobile game by Chinese studios Shanghai Manjuu and Xiamen Yongshi. The aesthetic is very similar to Kantai Collection, with anthropomorphic waifus inspired by World War II warships. This, of course, sparked widespread popularity in Japan.

As a consequence, a PS4 game titled Azur Lane: Crosswave is being developed in Japan by Gifu-based studio Felistella, published by Compile Heart. The developer is known for its work on the Summon Night, Hyperdimension Neptunia, and Genkai Tokki franchises.

Azur Lane: Crosswave is currently being developed in Unreal Engine 4, and it looks quite nice so far, if you like the shipgirl trope.

You can check out the screenshots below, and see if they entice you.
