Blue Reflection

Koei Tecmo released new information detailing the simulation elements of Blue Reflection! The relationships Hinako has with her friends are key in fighting the Sephira.

But first, here is a new teaser trailer focusing on the story of Blue Reflection:

Relationships are grown in multiple ways. First, you have Bond Episodes, where you hangout with a friend at school after classes are over. Or you could take your friend to a movie or other locations through the Date Events.

Furthering your friendship with various characters unlock various missions. Essential Missions are for moving the main story along. You also unlock Important Missions,  which is all about character interaction. And then you have Common Exploration missions. Completing these missions increase your affinity with certain characters along with granting you new abilities.

When you are tired of hanging out with your friends, you can send Hinako home to relax. There, you can access the social media app FreeSpace! With it, you can connect with friends and plan events. You can also learn more about Hinako herself.

Koei Tecmo also released several new screenshots, many of them showing off Hinako’s classmates:

Koei Tecmo describes Blue Reflection:

Blue Reflection follows the life of Hinako Shirai as she takes her first steps into an ordinary school life after a tragic accident ends her ballet career. Her injury causes her to close off her heart from the rest of the world, but her life changes when she meets her new best friends, the magical Shijou twins Yuzu and Lime, who bestow her with the powers of a Reflector. As she comes to terms with her new abilities and traverses between her ordinary school life and The Common, Hinako starts to understand the very real perils that await not only her friends, but humanity itself.

Blue Reflection releases on PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam on September 26th in North America and September 29th in Europe.
