Idea Factory International released new character details for their shipfu action game Azur Lane: Crosswave will be coming to PlayStation 4 and PC-via Steam in February 2020.
The publisher introduces six new ship girls that players will be able to play as in the game, Abukuma, Javelin, Amazon, St. Lous, Arizona, Z23. Javelin is a Royal Navy girl who is cute and sly. She is a clever fighter and becomes friends with almost everyone. While Z23 is a member of Iron Blood and is always trying to improve herself. St. Louis is the mature older sister of Helena and supports her friends.
Additionally, the game will have a few extra modes for players to dive into aside from the traditional Story Mode. In Extreme Battle Mode players will be able to take on tougher stages and collect rare items. There’s also an Episode Mode where players can unlock hidden events between characters by clearing certain criteria. However, I think we’re all here for the Photo Mode, which allows players to place up to 3 characters in an open stage and post them however you’d like.
Additional information about the newest ships can be found on the game’s official website. The limited-edition for the game is available now in the west. An EU version of the Limited Edition is also available on PS4 and PC.
