About Azur Lane: Crosswave

Newcomers have joined the four nations that are the Eagle Union, Royal Navy, Ironblood, and Sakura Empire, and everyone is getting along and training each day.

It is at this time that the four nations decide to collaborate and hold the “Joint War Games.”

The fighting spirits of each participant will burn before this grand event in which only select members are chosen to take part.

…How did the Joint War Games come to be held so quickly?
…Who is pulling the strings behind the scenes?

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


A world of “KAN-SEN” (warships)—women that take the form of warships and 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
