Last month, Azur Lane made an announcement that they're going to have a collaboration event with Compile Heart's Hyperdimension Neptunia. At today's live stream, they have divulged more details on the collaboration together with voice actresses of Neptune and Noire, Ms. Rie Tanaka and Ms. Asami Imai, as guests in the stream.
A new event titled "Visitors from Another Dimension" will have the four main goddesses of Hyperdimension Neptunia appear in Azur Lane while donning ship equipment. Neptune will act as a Light Cruiser, Noire will be a Heavy Cruiser, Blanc as Destroyer, and Vert as an Aircraft Carrier. All of them will have the SR (Elite) rarity.
The Goddess forms of the four will also be featured, albeit as separate characters, and they will have a higher SSR (Champion) rarity. With the exception of Neptune and Vert who are obtainable from mission rewards, the other 6 Hyperdimension Neptunia characters will be obtainable from the event's Limited Construction banner.
There are also new costume skins for Purple Heart, Black Heart, White Heart, and Green Heart—newly designed by Compile Heart—that will be available to purchase with gems during the event period. This event will have a special map with four stages where the Goddesses will become the boss of each stage. There is also an optional extra stage that will be very challenging to beat.
Azur Lane's collaboration event with Hyperdimension Neptunia will commence in the Japanese servers from January 26, while it has also been confirmed that the Chinese servers will be getting this event as well. Azur Lane is a mobile shipgirl game that recently has taken Japan by storm. We recently made an article analyzing how this Chinese-made game can rival Kantai Collection's popularity in Japan.
