The game's Japanese trailer also reveals that the game's Japanese release will have a limited edition that includes cards modeled on karuta cards with proverbs and poems by Darjeeling, a special Blu-ray Disc including the "Sei Gloriana no Kore ga Hontō no Ocha-kai desu." (Saint Gloriana's This is a Real Tea Party) video, a desk calendar, 11 posters, and an acrylic key holder.
The Switch version of the game will feature new characters and tanks from the first Girls und Panzer das Finale film.
The PS4 game shipped in Japan on February 22. The Premium Edition of the game bundled a Blu-ray Disc with video content (including the "Tank Trial!" picture drama and an "Anglerfish Team Roundtable Discussion" talk show video), a specially designed box, a "Dream Tank Book" special booklet, and a clear visual poster set. Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia released the game on February 27 in Southeast Asia with English text and Japanese audio.
The game features five-vs-five online tank battles and a tank and crew customization mode.
