Yostar Japan held a new live stream that revealed new Azur Lane content in its Summer 2022 event. The new event will run from July 28 to August 11, 2022. It will add six new shipgirls affiliated with the Italy-inspired Sardegna Empire. The Littorio-class battleship RN Roma will become the main star of the upcoming Azur Lane event.
These new additions will complete several Italian ship classes that have been featured in the mobile game. Other than Roma, Azur Lane will also see the completion of the Trento-class heavy cruisers with Bolzano, and the Duca degli Abruzzi-class light cruisers with Giuseppe Garibaldi.
