Gust have revealed some more Blue Reflection details on the game’s missions, Fragments, and three more characters! There’s a lot to take in! In particular, the way to power up the Reflectors is pretty extensive, so you can customise the characters to better fit your fighting style.
In order to take down the huge bosses, it’s vital to improve the skills and abilities of the Reflectors! Throughout the game, there is a selection of missions you can complete, divided into 3 categories. ‘Essential’ missions will contribute to continuing the story, ‘Important’ missions will add to your bonds with other students, and ‘Common Exploration’ missions will see you explore the Other World.
By completing these different types of quests, you’ll be rewarded with Growth Points, which you can assign to Attack, Defence, Support, and Technic stats as you see fit. Getting a particular stat to a certain value will allow you to learn skills. Learning more skills will strengthen your characters and expand the ways you can battle strategically.
To solve the other students’ problems, Hinako and the others must search for Fragments, which are pieces of human emotions. You can equip the Fragments to skills for extra effects, and you can enhance the Fragments themselves by using items you collect in the Other World.
The items needed to enhance a Fragment vary, as do its effects on different skills, so there’s a lot of scope for customisation. You can see what effects the Fragment will have before equipping it too, so you don’t need to worry about it being down to luck!
CV: Nao Shiraki
Fumio was brought up solely by her grandmother and is now a high-achieving student and avid musician with perfect pitch. She has been learning the piano from a young age and is now specialising in it in high school. Sometimes she says what’s on her mind without thinking, but she’s easy to get along with.
CV: Ayaka Shimizu
A carefree girl who isn’t devoted to anything, Kaori enjoys playing phone games and browsing message boards. She tends to be considered a delinquent based on her appearance, but is actually a hardworking student who always comes to school. She used to be in the same track club as Rika in middle school, but has now given up running and is annoyed that Rika keeps telling her to take it back up.
CV: Ai Kayano
A member of the track club. Though she’s not the fastest, she loves the exhilarating feeling she gets when running and the satisfaction of beating your previous record. She knows about the latest fashion and music trends but is self-conscious about being considered a ‘normal’ high school girl.
