Azur Lane: Crosswave

Idea Factory International shared some more details about the upcoming Azur Lane: Crosswave release on the Nintendo Switch. Today they are showing off the Extreme Battle and Episode Modes. In the Extreme Battle players can challenge over 100 battles. Completing these will grant players some coin to spend in Akashi’s shop. Players will also receive the all important parts to craft promise rings for you favorite Kansen. The DLC Kansen’s parts will need to be obtained in their story missions.

As you unlock certain Kansen to use in your fleet story bits will begin to unlock in Episode Mode. These play out very closely to what you find in the mobile game, and I found many of these to be quite entertaining. These are all fully voiced in Japanese and players will obtain a few crafting parts for viewing them.

Azur Lane: Crosswave will launch on the Nintendo Switch February 16, 2021 in North America and February 19, 2021 in Europe. This release will include the updated Photo Mode with up to six characters. The DLC Kansen Taihou and Formidable will be included as well with their support ships.

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.
