Azur Lane: Crosswave is an action RPG that is a spin-off of the popular mobile game Azur Lane, produced by the Chinese studio Shanghai Manjuu Technology. However, the producers of the title are Japanese companies Compile Heart and Idea Factory, specializing in the production of jRPG and known mainly due to the cycle Hyperdimension Neptune. Original Azur Lane debuted in China in May 2017, a few months later the production was released in Japan, where it immediately became a huge hit. A year later, the title was officially released to Western users. The popularity of the brand made it adaptable in a short time in the form of comics, books and anime series.
Azur Lane: Crosswave takes place in the world of a mobile original that controls fictitious parties that reflect real-world existing countries such as the United Kingdom, the United States, China, Germany and Japan. They all formed the title alliance called Azur Lane. However, the extraterrestrial invaders persuaded Germany and Japan to break out of it, creating the Crimson Axis. The aim of the Axis is to gain control of the world by using weapons and technology provided by its mysterious principals. In the ranks of the armies of both sides of the dispute are young girls who are anthropomorphs of the actually existing military ships fighting during the Second World War.
Azur Lane: Crosswave adapts many aspects of the mobile original that should be known to its fans. During the game, we control the selected heroine in real time, fighting against enemy ships using a variety of special abilities and attacks. The action of the game is observed from the third person perspective. As in the mobile prototype, between missions we can choose and change the equipment of the ships we command.
Azur Lane: Crosswave offers a colourful 3D cel-shading graphics solution powered by Unreal Engine 4. All ships are equipped with spoken lines during combat and dialogues during role-playing interludes, recorded by Japanese actresses.
