August 13, 2020 – Shanghai, China - The popular 2D shooter game Azur Lane has welcomed its 2nd Anniversary in August. Recently, the Azur Lane team prepared a grand livestream for all global players, as well as a brand new anniversary theme song produced by world-renowned violinist and songwriter Lindsey Stirling.

Last year, Azur Lane celebrated its 1st Anniversary on the USS Iowa deck. This year, instead of visiting the real USS Intrepid, Azur Lane created a whole-virtual USS Intrepid set-up and celebrated its 2nd Anniversary on this virtual deck. Within this virtual USS Intrepid, players will be able to discover a 3D representation of the in-game dormitory, the Azur Lane harbor store, etc for the first time.

Another big surprise would be the anniversary theme song “What You’re Made Of ft. Kiesza” written by Lindsey Stirling. This song is inspired by the Azur Lane Midway Showdown storyline, where Enterprise, Hornet and Yorktown supported each other and fought against the Crimson Axis. It’s the first time the global server received its own unique anniversary theme song.

To celebrate this special occasion and express gratitude to all players, guests such as the Manjuu developers, Voice Actors Amamiya Sora and Ishikawa Yui, and the Chairman of Board of the Battleship Iowa Museum all congratulated Azur Lane for its 2nd Anniversary.


As for in-game contents, the Azur Lane team revealed future plans as well as a collaboration event with DEAD OR ALIVE Xtreme Venus Vacation, which is great news for both DOA and Azur Lane fans. Besides the collaboration, Azur Lane’s annual routine Anniversary Artbook is also on the way. Players will get to see artworks from their own community being featured in this artbook as well.


Azur Lane also has a highly active social media community. Players can follow the official social media to receive the latest information about upcoming events. New chapters for the manga, Slow Ahead, and community activities are also posted regularly. If you haven’t played this naval warfare game, give it a try.
