Bonus DLC Character:

Neptune (Hyperdimension Neptunia™)
 Neptune is the CPU of Planeptune, a nation in Gamindustri. She was summoned to this world for some reason. Her happy-go-lucky attitude and overall personality are set to full throttle as usual. She has visited many worlds and dimensions before, and this time, it looks like she’s teaming up with the girls of this world in order to offer them her full support.
Each character also belongs to one of the four Nations participating in the Joint Military Exercise: Sakura Empire, Eagle Union, Royal Navy, and Iron Blood. Learn more about the four Nations below!

Sakura Empire: An island nation in the east which abides by its culture of honor and tradition.

Eagle Union: The democratic federation which values the principles of freedom and harmony.

Royal Navy: The constitutional monarchy which prides itself in its glorious history of nobility.
 
Iron Blood: The military empire which strives for phenomenal advancements in technology.

Playable Characters:

Takao
  A core member of the Sakura Empire who holds a simple, yet strong front, just like a samurai. She isn’t particularly interested in trends and can rarely be seen talking about such matters. She goes about her daily life being relied upon by many as a peer to Atago, and is also found acting as a mentor. Takao is on the opposite spectrum of Atago, often found being pushed around by her words, but it’s not like she has a problem with Atago; at the very core, they are great friends.
Nagato Nagato looks towards the future of the Sakura Empire as the Miko, the most heralded position handling the most important of rituals. She is concerned that she lacks the experience when it comes to politics in comparison to older members, such as Akagi, but that also means she has admiration towards her seniors. She was sternly trained to become the flagship for the Sakura Empire, which has made her grow more powerful than before. The Joint Military Exercise is being conducted under Nagato’s will, and despite the event’s unforeseeable future, Nagato is accepting the challenges to come.
Bismarck Bismarck is the leader of the Iron Blood fleet, but she disappeared from the frontline after the official battle against Hood and Rodney of the Royal Navy. She’s kept a watchful eye on the Sirens since they appeared, and was somehow able to gain access to the Siren’s technology. She’s calm and generally keeps to herself, so some mistake her as being cold-blooded, but, on the contrary, she is very passionate. She didn’t want the Iron Blood to get involved with the Joint Military Exercise, but Kaga and Bismarck’s younger sister convinced her to take part. What Bismarck will experience from the event is yet to be understood…

Full-Time Secretary/Battle Support:

  • Secretary Ship: Appears on main menus when not engaged in battle. Secretary Ship can be a playable character or support character. Having a ship as your secretary can lead to some interesting events to happen!
  • Support: Can be selected to assist in battle. When certain conditions are met, support characters can perform different support skills such as attacks, buffs, and heals. Playable characters can also be deployed as support characters, lending a different set of skills than if they were controlled.
Ikazuchi A part of the Sakura Empire, Ikazuchi is one of the twin sisters forming their fleet of destroyers. She can be told apart from her twin sister, Inazuma, by her distinct reddish hair. She’s quite precocious, and often tries to act mature using difficult words and terminologies. She has a habit of saying “I see,” but oftentimes she misconceives what she assumes to understand, and ends up being wrong. Because of this, her conversation with Inazuma usually end in complete disarray. It’s best to not think too deep of what Ikazuchi says. She is participating in the Joint Military Exercise to represent the twins.
Ise  A very masculine member of the Sakura Empire. She is able to carry the heaviest of armaments with ease, but her battle prowess is a bit excessive in this peaceful world. The Joint Military Exercise is viewed as an “Exercise” by Ise, so she’s taking the event quite casually. Too bad for her, since a certain incident will occur that will test Ise’s mettle!
Indianapolis A member of Eagle Union and younger sister to Portland. She has tanned skin, long pink hair, and heterochromic eyes. Not only does she look gentle, but her personality is gentle too, unlike her older sister. She dons defensive armaments, and specializes in support. She is a bit concerned over her older sister, but in general, she places full trust in her. She’s looking forward to meeting others from the participating nations, and is proud that Portland is able to participate in the event.

About Azur Lane (mobile game)

Azur Lane is a side-scrolling shooter created by Shanghai Manjuu and Xiamen Yongshi, originally released in 2017 for iOS and Android platforms. The Shanghai-based publisher, Yostar, published the Japanese and English version of the mobile game, popularizing the game to more mobile users across the world. The game takes place in a world where personified battleships from around the globe engage in side-scrolling shooter gameplay.

About Azur Lane: Crosswave

Azur Lane: Crosswave takes the spirit of the mobile game and uses the Unreal Engine to bring its characters to life in a massive 3D world, so fans can see them like they’ve never seen them before. The in-game character designs will also feature cel-shaded anime style 3D graphics that stay true to the original art.

Key Features

Retrofitted in 3D – Azur Lane mobile, the beloved side-scrolling shooter, is now retrofitted for the PlayStation®4 and Steam® as a cel-shaded, 3D action shooter with the help of Unreal Engine! Choose from 25+ characters and 30+ support characters to help lead your fleet to victory. Azur Lane: Crosswave also introduces 2 brand-new playable characters, Shimakaze and Suruga!

4 Modes to Choose From – Choose from 4 different modes: Story, Extreme Battle, Photo, or Episode Mode. Story Mode goes through 7 riveting chapters in the footsteps of newcomers, Shimakaze and Suruga. In Extreme Battle Mode, choose from 100+ challenging fleets to battle for rare items and special materials. In Photo Mode, you can pose characters, change facial expressions, alter backgrounds, and camera angles to create a picturesque moment. Episode Mode includes 50+ sub-stories that deliver bonus character backgrounds!

Arm Your Armada – Before setting sail, beef up your characters by equipping them with rare items found after a successful battle or by crafting items at Akashi’s Laboratory. Here, Commanders can exchange blueprints to create new gear, convert materials into rare items, and earn rewards. Experiment with different fleet arrangements to gain special Fleet Effects that can provide in-game stat bonuses.

Ready, Aim, Fire – In Azur Lane: Crosswave, you can now control, aim, and fire at incoming battleships, aircraft carriers, and other enemies. Depending on the character’s subtype, players can dash to evade attacks or activate defensive shields, unleash torpedoes or aircrafts, and switch-on character-specific special attacks to defeat unruly enemies!
