Azur Lane: Crosswave

Compile Heart has released the fourth in its series of “Ryuu News” videos for advance naval RPG Azur Lane: Crosswave, which introduces the basics of battle.

Here is an overview of the video, via Compile Heart:

If a battle occurs during the Joint War Games, the scene will transition to battle. Battle scenes are depicted as shooting games, and allow you to freely control the character. The player can fight while switching between three characters.

You raise your level and pierce the enemy head-on, or you can test out your equipment / formation and take on the enemy at a low level. Get rid of the powerful enemies that stand in your way and aim for victory!
