Publisher Koei Tecmo and developer Gust have released new information and screenshots for Blue Reflection: Second Light, revealing the game’s Japanese box art, the “Heartscape” area, new character Shiho Kasuga, and the mysterious group message character “RefleNavi.”
Get the details below.
■ Japanese Box Art
One day, a new place named the “Heartscape” appeared in this world where there was only a school and water. This mysterious space was filled with randomly placed objects from the real world.
Could this place also contain clues about this world? A mysterious light shined while exploring the Heartscape…
It was a “Memory Fragment.”
Once Ao and company touched it, Kokoro Utsubo’s memories began to return little by little.
Apparently, the Memory Fragments in this space are related to Kokoro’s memories.
When she remembered something important, a new girl who Kokoro calls Shiho appears in this world as if in response to her memories returning.
What is the Heartscape? And just what is this world? It all continues to remain a mystery to the girls.
Shiho Kasuga (voiced by Emiri Suyama)
“Are we trapped?”
A girl who appeared in front of Ao and company after a certain event. She is a kind and serious honors student. She looks out for others and is good at housework. While she also lost her memory, Kokoro seems to know her.
Shiho Kasuga is one of the key persons connecting the stories of Blue Reflection Sun (iOS, Android) and Blue ReflectioN: Second Light.
A mysterious space that exists outside the school. Ao and company named it as it appears to be a biotope of the mind.
By exploring the Heartscape, you can get items necessary for the girls’ livelihoods such as ingredients and crafting materials.
Memory Fragments are also scattered throughout the Heartscape. By collecting these, you acn get a glimpse of some of the girls’ forgotten memories, which will act as a key to solving the world’s mysteries.
The Heartscape also has various obstacles and monsters. A powerful boss monster awaits in its depths, and stands against the girls who are trying to solve the mysteries of this world.
On the day that the Heartscape appeared, someone named “RefleNavi” suddenly appeared in the girls’ smartphone group message.
RefleNavi gives Ao and company the information they need to live, but also has a will of its own, willfully listening to the girls’ conversations and warning them not to go near the Heartscape, which is somewhat eerie.
It also helps Ao and company out when they have troubles living in this world, and informs them about the Heartscape, but its purpose and identity are shrouded in mystery.
Blue Reflection: Second Light is due out for PlayStation 4 and Switch on October 21 in Japan, followed by PC via Steam at a later date. A western release is also planned. Read more about the game here.
