Azur Lane Crosswave is a waifu-filled, fan service-heavy, panty flashing SHMUP… so of course I love it. Based on a hugely popular 2D action game on mobile, this 3D effort from Compile Heart features an amusing narrative, slick action, and some very gorgeous girls.

Indeed in many ways this game is a return to a very old school Compile Heart, running on much the same irreverent humour that drove the Hyperdimension Neptunia series. With Compile Heart and Idea Factory experimenting with more serious games in recent months, the simple nonsense of this one has been welcome indeed.

And I’m not even a big SHMUP fan! In this video I take a look at some of the things I love about this latest effort.
