Koei Tecmo has announced a western release for Gust’s beautiful, modern-day RPG titled Blue Reflection.
The modern heroine-focused RPG will launch on September 26th in North America and September 29th in Europe, on both PC and PlayStation 4. It’s worth pointing out the game’s PS Vita version was dropped in favor of PC.
If you pre-order the game via participating retailers, you’ll get some digital goodies, including: the School Swimsuit and Rorona style costumes – the latter being the outfit of Rorolina Frixell from Atelier Rorona – and a “FreeSpace!” theme to change the look of their social networking app, a key in-game feature used to stay in touch with companions outside of school. If you purchase the game on PlayStation 4, you’ll get an exclusive “original custom theme.”
Here’s a rundown on the game, via 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.
