Idea Factory International has confirmed that the English release of Azur Lane: Crosswave will receive the five character DLC sets within this Fall.
These DLC sets have been revealed previously in Japan, and all of them have been available in the Japanese release as of this May. Each set adds a new playable shipgirl, fully rendered in 3D and having her own storyline - which also features three more shipgirls as support characters that do not have playable 3D models but can still be chosen as secretary and provide support skills during battles.
