Pre-Registration For SHMUP Azur Lane Now Open

Azur Lane gameplay English

Pre-registration is now open for hero collection shoot ’em up game Azur Lane and rewards are promised based on the total number of pre-registrations.

Azur Lane takes place in world where the forces of humanity have lost control of the seas but have banded together to share technology and retake the control from the Sirens.

Similar to titles like Girls’ Frontline, Azur Lane is a game that revolves around anthropomorphised objects that now look like anime-style girls. Azur Lane’s characters are representations of World War II era warships. Players will be able to collect, power up, and battle using the likes of USS Helena, the IJN Maya, and HMS Belfast, all of which are represented by heavily armed anime girls complete with voice acting.

As players collect and upgrade their ships, they can form fleets and head into battle. The battles themselves are a mobile take on the SHMUP genre. Players control the movement of their three frontline ships using a virtual joystick, and have control over when their ships use their special attacks. There’s a fully automated mode for those that prefer to let the AI take on some of the game’s easier missions.

Rewards are being offered based on the total number of users that pre-register for the game. The rewards are:

  • 5,000 pre-registrations: Magic Cube x 5
  • 10,000 pre-registrations: Rapid Construction x 5
  • 20,000 pre-registrations: Royal Cuisine x 5
  • 30,000 pre-registrations: Diamond x200
  • 50,000 pre-registrations: USS Yorktown aircraft carrier

Pre-registration is available on the game’s official website.

Azur Lane originally launched in China a little over a year ago before being released in Japan several months later. The game currently ranks as the 22nd highest grossing game in Japan on Google Play.
