Azur Lane Crosswave heading to Western shores in 2020

As fans of the shipgirl series already know, Azur Lane Crosswave will be heading to Western PS4s and PCs via Steam in 2020. You can currently pre-order a physical copy of Azur Lane Crosswave from Limited Run. Limited Run is offering a Standard Edition for $49.99 and Limited Edition for $99.99. The Standard Edition is just a physical copy of the game while the Limited Edition features a physical copy of the game along with a steel game case, a “Nautical Debriefing” hardcover art book (96 pages), the official soundtrack (16 tracks), a Shimakaze figure, a 2 inch enamel pin set (Javelin, Suruga, Ayanami), a Sakura Empire standee (featuring Takao, Atago, and Yamashiro), a reversible cover sleeve, and a collector’s box.
Azur Lane is a fun 2D sidescrolling shoot 'em up available on mobile devices. Azur Lane also features many side activities, including dating and marrying the shipgirls, beyond the 2D shooter aspects. It will be interesting to see if this gameplay combo will hold up in the transition to 3D. As soon as we here at the Geek Getaway get a chance to take Azur Lane Crosswave for a spin we will be sure to report back to all of you. In the meantime you can look at the official key features of the game and watch the preview trailer below.
