Azur Lane: Crosswave is a 3D action shooter game that takes place in a world where personified battleships from around the globe engage in side-scrolling shooter gameplay.

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.

Azur Lane, the original mobile app game released in China in 2017 for iOS and Android platforms, reached critical acclaim in China and Japan, hitting five million players within its first four months. The game takes place in a world where personified battleships from around the globe engage in side-scrolling shooter gameplay.

Azur Lane: Crosswave recreates the beloved Azur Lane character designs in the style of cel-shaded 3D graphics that stay true to the original art, as well as featuring a multitude of your favorite commanders in a 3D light.
