In Japan, the PlayStation 4 and Switch versions were already dated for release on October 21.
In North America, a limited edition of Blue Reflection: Second Light will be available exclusively through the NIS America Online Store for $129.99, which includes a copy of the game, exclusive B2-size cloth poster, academy notebook-styled photo album, “Everyone’s Memories” album art book, two acyrlic mini character charms, early distribution code for “Special Costume for Ao: Ryza Style,” and a collector’s box.
Here is an overview of the game, via Koei Tecmo:
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 path leading to a new land appears, but when the three protagonists set off to unravel the mystery, they’re met by a series of deadly monsters. By battling the fiendish creatures, they unlock unknown powers that only seem to deepen the cryptic nature of their surroundings. Throughout the adventure, the three friends cooperate and struggle to make their everyday-life as rich and as fun as possible. While spending every day trapped in this unknown world, the characters’ true feelings and personalities will be revealed, and as their bonds grow deeper, they will acquire new strengths and abilities.
Furthermore, not only will the protagonists be able to build their ideal academy throughout the game, but they will also be able to craft items together, and depending on the character combinations, the completed item’s properties can change, even triggering special conversations. By deepening their friendships, the three students will eventually grow closer to the mystery of this world and the reason of why they lost their memories.
Famed illustrator Mel Kishida is once again spearheading the franchise’s character designs. The richly detailed designs will inhabit both the upcoming Blue Reflection: Second Light video game as well as the Blue Reflection: Ray anime series.
