With a few mysteries, encounters, and great hidden ambitions, a new naval battle never before realized is about to unfold!

World

A world of “KAN-SEN” (warships)—women that wear the bodies of warships and are gifted with intelligence, beauty, and combat ability.

In emergency preparation for the unknown enemies known as “Sirens,” they spend each day refining their various techniques.

While a major war has yet to occur, they have constantly built up good relationships.

Even for these girls, the Joint War Games is a special event the likes of which has never before occured.

The Original Game

Azur Lane is a side-scrolling shoot ’em up RPG for iOS and Android devices where players form a party of KAN-SEN and battle. Many beautiful girl characters personified as warships appear, and there are a variety of training elements available in the game. It includes both auto mode and manual mode, allowing even players who may not be good at shooting games to enjoy playing.

There’s currently no word if this game will make its way in North America. For now, it’s exclusive for Japan.
