Azur Lane: Crosswave for Switch Offers to Put Some Nep in Your Step (For Free!)

Because what game isn’t better with Neptune?


Azur Lane: Crosswave Neptune


Azur Lane: Crosswave has already promised players a bevy of beautiful… erm… boats, but Idea Factory International, like the rest of us, knows that a bigger roster is always better. That’s why they’ve announced that Neptune of the Neptunia franchise will be available to download for free for a limited time once the game lands on Switch later this year!

What’s that? You want other free stuff, too? That’s an awfully greedy thing to say! Fortunately, IF’s got your back again, as it seems as though they’ll be stuffing even more content into the Switch version than ever before. Keep on reading to see just exactly what they’ve got in store for everyone.

  • Taihou and Formidable, formerly DLC for the PS4/Steam version, are included as playable characters! Both come with 3 support characters each and additional story content.
  • An updated Photo Mode: You can now pose up to 6 characters instead of 3 for more photo shoot fun! Get creative with new extended camera angles.



Azur Lane: Crosswave for Nintendo Switch sets sail later this year, on February 16, 2021, with the Neptune DLC sticking around from launch day up until March 16. IFI has also confirmed that this one-month period will be the only time that you can get the Neptune DLC; once it’s gone, it’s gone for good. Oh, and supposedly this version of Neptune is “exclusive to the Nintendo Switch and differs from the original limited-time release Neptune DLC released on PS4 and Steam,” whatever that means. Did you play Crosswave when it released on PS4 and PC? Will you be picking up the Switch edition? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
