Meet Azur Lane: Crosswave’s New Ships And Sirens

Six new characters make a splash ahead of Azur Lane: Crosswave’s arrival on Switch

Azur Lane: Crosswave

With the game’s Switch launch on the horizon, publisher Idea Factory International revealed the new ships and Sirens joining the fray in the latest update for Azur Lane: Crosswave.

The update adds 1 playable ship, two support class ships, and three Sirens, which serve as the game’s main antagonists.

Check out the new ships and Sirens below courtesy of the publisher:


Playable Ship:

Ping Hai

A girl from the Dragon Empery, a nation separate from the four major nations. She lives a frugal life with her sister, who looks just like her, Ning Hai. She eats a lot, but if it’s for her sister, she will suppress her hunger and put in her very best at training herself. She was invited to attend the event, and enters the fray representing the Dragon Empery.

Her sister, Ning Hai, is available as a full-time secretary and battle support ship.

 

Full-Time Secretary/Battle Support Ships:

 

Zara

Sardegna Empire affiliated. One of the central members of the imperial fleet, with amazing proportions. She is active as the right-hand of the empire.

 

Jean Bart

Vichya Dominion affiliated. Though she has a rough temperament, she also has a more sensitive side that cares for those weaker than her.

 

Sirens:

 

Observer

Among the Sirens is Observer, whose work involves her namesake: to observe those who are able to connect and interface with the history and lore of the naval vessels. She is rarely ever seen partaking in any matters of the world. She holds a twisted view towards the humans and Kansen that can only be explained as being eerie and complex, which are reflected by her menacing weaponry. What happens after her observation this time is unknown…

*Observer is an Enemy AI only and can also appear in photo mode.

 

Editor

Azur Lane editor

One of the Sirens, and in charge of commanding tactical execution. Her full specs are wrapped in mystery.

*Editor appears in the extra episodes for Taihou and Formidable. She also appears in the extra episodes for DLC characters Roon, Le Malin, and Sirius.

 

Tester

Azur Lane tester

One of the Sirens, and in charge of commanding tactical execution. Her full specs are wrapped in mystery.

*Tester appears in the extra episodes for Taihou and Formidable. She also appears in the extra episodes for DLC characters Roon, Le Malin, and Sirius.

 


Azur Lane: Crosswave is a 3D action title based on the popular naval-themed mobile shoot ’em up from Chinese studios Shanghai Manjuu and Xiamen Yongshi.
