Today Koei Tecmo released an extensive trailer and gameplay of the upcoming Blue Reflection sequel Blue Reflection Tie, titled Blue Reflection: Second Light in English.
The video focuses on introducing the cast of characters that we’ll meet in the game on top of its rather surreal story and some of the gameplay features.
We also get to see a lot of gameplay showcased during a livestream from Japan, including exploration, combat, the dressing room, and more.
On top of that, we also get a video with a preview of the soundtrack.
You can check all the videos out below.
Here’s how the publisher describes the game:
“Blue Reflection: Second Light follows the adventures of three students – Ao Hoshizaki, Kokoro Utsubo, and Yuki Kinjou – who find themselves transported to a mysterious floating academy, searching for clues to find their way back home, with only their names as memories. One day, a strange new space spreads across the outskirts of the academy. Since the new land surrounds the world the heroines inhabit, they refer to it as “the heart of the world” and name the unexplained new area Heartscape. Inside Heartscape, the characters will be able to find ingredients for cooking, and materials for building, crafting, and battle. They will also discover memory shards, and the moment Ao and her friends touch one of these enigmatic lights, the memories begin to reignite bit by bit. Collect more memory shards to uncover each heroine’s memories, while at the same time stepping closer to unlocking the mystery of this world.
Unfortunately for the heroines, the almost dream-like land of Heartscape can also be an extremely dangerous location to explore. Monsters stalk the land, and Ao and friends will need to use the power of rings to summon weapons, change their appearance, and become “Reflectors” ready to repel the attacking beasts in a hectic real-time battle system.”
Blue Reflection: Second Light releases in North America and Europe on November 9, 2021, just over a couple of weeks after the Japanese launch on October 21. If you want to see more, you can check out the first trailer and a recent batch of screenshots.
