Everyone waiting for the announcement of a Blue Reflection western release can now rejoice! Koei Tecmo has announced that the game will be releasing in North America and Europe on PS4 and Steam in September! What’s more, there’s a bunch of neat pre-order bonuses too, including some of the DLC costumes!
Here’s an overview of the story from Koei Tecmo:
Blue Reflection takes place at Hoshinomiya Girls’ High School, where players assume the role of student Hinako Shirai. When Hinako’s ballet career comes to an end after a tragic accident, she closes her heart off from the rest of the world. However, her life changes when she meets her new best friends, the magical Shijou twins – Yuzu, who is adored by her classmates for her cheerful and warm personality, and Lime, who is more logical and selfish.
The twin sisters bestow Hinako with the power of a Reflector, a champion who can manipulate a mysterious parallel dimension known as The Common. Hinako can freely move and shape this mystical realm’s beauty with her imagination, but she soon understands the very real perils that await her and her friends. As Hinako learns to treasure her companions and creates new bonds with those around her, she gains new strength to help her fight in The Common.
With more information on the game’s narrative, compelling characters and key mechanics being revealed in the coming months, Koei Tecmo released a selection of images showcasing school life in Blue Reflection, providing a first look at the game’s main character, Hinako Shirai, her closest friends, Yuzuki and Lime Shijou, Shihori Sugamoto, the innocent fashionista who treats everyone as equals, and the troublesome but kind-hearted Chihiro Inoue.
The pre-order bonuses will be available to those who purchase from Independent Retailers through Centresoft or digitally on the PlayStation Store or Steam Marketplace in Europe and to those who purchase from Amazon, Best Buy, EB Games and GameStop in North America.
The pre-order pack includes the School Swimsuit and Atelier Rorona costumes for Hinako, as well as an in-game theme for the “FreeSpace!” social networking app – a key feature for staying in touch with companions outside of school. Those buying the game on PS4 will receive an additional exclusive Original Custom Theme too. Take a look below:
This is really exciting news! Blue Reflection looks stunning, so it’s great to know it will be getting released in the west! It’s worth noting that the game won’t be coming to Vita over here. The addition of a Steam port is sure to make a lot of people happy though!
The Blue Reflection western release comes to PS4 and Steam on September 26th in North America and September 29th in Europe. You can catch up on more about the game, including character trailers, here.
