The game was originally launched in Japan only for PS4, with a PC port added for the recent western release.

Now it’s coming for Nintendo Switch with a release date in Japan set for September 17, 2020.

The Switch release will include out of the box two of the six DLC packages released for PS4, specifically the ones dedicated to Taihou and Formidable.

On top of that, the photo mode has been tweaked so that you can take pictures of six girls at the same time.

You can check out the first trailer and the opening animation below.

For the moment, Idea Factory International has not announced a western release. We’ll keep you update in case they do. 

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

We also have our review of the PS4 version, if you’re interested in knowing whether the game is worth your time.

Azur Lane: Crosswave is currently available for PS4 and PC. 

If you’re unfamiliar with the original Azur Lane, it’s is a free-to-play mobile horizontal scrolling shooter/RPG hybrid currently available for iOS and Android.

If you’re curious about the franchise’s popularity in Japan, you can check out my report about the recent anniversary event that pretty much literally invaded Akihabara.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
