Now in 3D! Azur Lane: Crosswave from Idea Factory for the Nintendo Switch is now retrofitted as a 3D action shooter!
Taking place in a world where personified battleships from across the globe duke it out, 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 also feature cel-shaded anime style 3D graphics that stay true to the original art. Choose from 25+ playable and 30+ support characters, including newcomers, Shimakaze and Suruga, to help lead your fleet to victory.
Enter the four nations: Eagle Union, Royal Navy, Iron Blood, and Sakura Empire. The military of each nation marched towards yet another season of diligent training. In the middle of each nation's normal training routine, a Joint Military Exercise was enacted. A select few from each nation were chosen to participate in this rigorous event.
But, how did this event come to be? Are there other ulterior motives at play?
