The latest issues of Weekly Famitsu and Dengeki PlayStation have first details on Blue Reflection: Sword of the Girl Who Dances in Illusions, a new title from Gust for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita featuring character design and supervision by Mel Kishida, who previously did character design for Atelier Rorona, Atelier Totori, and Atelier Meruru.

Further details have yet to be released or leak from the magazine, but Famitsu and Dengeki provided a 3D model of one of the game’s characters, which Dengeki says is how the character looks when running on PlayStation 4.

Gust provided details in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine for their recently announced PS4 and PS Vita title, Blue Reflection, with more on the characters and story that revolves around bonding and interacting with others. [Thanks, Hachima.]

Blue Reflection is listed as a “Heroic RPG” as its genre. Mel Kishida is the game’s character designer, Junzo Hosoi as the producer. Writers Keiichi Sigsawa, Yusaki Igarashi, and Koji Natsumi are also involved in its work as series organizers.

The bond and interaction between people is the theme of Blue Reflection, and you’ll get to witness the everyday lives of youth. In addition to classmates, there are various students that you’ll get to interactive with and deepen your bonds. Such relations with people is the big theme and focus of the game.

Hinako Shirai (CV: Yuki Takada)
Posted Image

The game’s protagonist. She was getting attention as an up-and-coming talented ballet dancer; however, one year ago, she was supposed to compete in a contest that would have been her gateway to success as a ballet dancer, but she had to give it up after injuring her foot. Since then, she hasn’t been able to dance due to the aftereffects. Her heart is currently sealed, but she continues believing that her foot will heal one day, and that she’ll be able to dance once again.

As the gloomy days go by for Hinako, she meets two girls who give her a mysterious power. This magical power transforms her into a “Reflector,” and gives her the power to fight. Hinako continues fighting with the selfish hopes of her foot healing by fighting as a Reflector, but she begins to wonder about who she is fighting and why she is fighting. Her fight eventually changes the world.

When transformed as a Reflecter, Hinako’s appearances change. Her hair turns blonde and she also gets different colored eyes. She fights using a glass-like sword.

Yuuzuki Tsukasaki, Ramu Tsukasaki

The two sisters who suddenly appear in front of Hinako. They’re the ones that give her the powers to transform into a Reflector.

Blue Reflection is in development for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The game’s development is currently 30% complete.

I can't believe how good the 3D models looks. That's actually how they'll look in-game, they're not artworks.

Shihori Sugamoto (voiced by Mikako Komatsu)

A sexy girl who likes pretty things.

Height: 162cm
Weight: 47.5kg
Likes: Accessories

A sexy girl with a unique atmosphere. She knows fashion and such very well, and will give advice when it comes to cosmetics. As a beautiful girl with excellent style, she is often rescued by men one way or another, and has little experience with facing hardships. She also has many male friends, and often hangs out with guys, just the two of them. For Shiori, however, everyone is an equal friend.

thanks for sharing. looks soooo AWESOME!! it's great beyond words how they reinvent the magical girl theme into a game as a new franchise and more!! it really has infinite potential!!

and its so cool how they simulate school life, Gust are experts at scheduled based lifestyle systems, and it fits perfect with this concept and design! this is greater and even more refreshing than a Sailor Moon game! this is like the dream game for a lot of magical girl fans that want a high quality magical girl rpg this gen, with new story, new world and new characters!! ^-^

and Valis's Yuko Ahso would be proud.

this is innovation done right in the industry overall

I wonder if there will be DLC/unlockables for long hair options? Hinako looks very pretty even with short hair, though would look really gorgeous with long hair. kind of like how DOA's Kasumi looks more beautiful with long flowing hair instead of her short braid. maybe it's a design hint that foreshadows that Blue Reflection is planned to be its own ongoing series, and Hinako's hair grows longer as the series develops? that would be interesting. well it's spectulation. Hinako still looks wonderful and feminine. ^-^ Reflector mode looks very beautiful.

though I think Blue Reflection could have more than 3 Reflectors. Gust rpgs are known to have at least a couple of extra party members to choose from. and a lot of the other girls look like they could become Reflectors later.

RPGs are long enough to contain several story arcs, so there could be lots of development that takes place. well if not this game, then a sequel could expand their group. though it's really a golden chance to really go all out and make the first one extra epic with surprise new Reflector recruits out of the new friends we make after some progression.

SO BEAUTIFUL!! I'm really liking the battle interface!! I think the reflect system might be a significant system to defend against some major skills. Or maybe that's an alternative to do more damage by reflecting their attacks. Or could combine both advantages.

"Blue Reflection Gets New PS4 Screenshots: Turn-Based Battles, Heroines and Schoolgirls

Today Gust released a batch of new screenshots of the upcoming JRPG Blue Reflection: Maboroshi Ni Mau Shojo no Ken, that will be released in Japan on March 30th for PS4 and PS Vita.

We learn that battles will have a classic turn-based setup, with the player selecting options like attack, and with a bar at the top of the screen showing the order of action between heroines and enemies.

By satisfying certain conditions, you can activate cooperative actions among the three reflectors, and when fighting the “original species” enemies in the real world, it’s possible to receive support from normal schoolgirls.

The player can choose characters that will act as support for the reflector, up to a maximum of four per reflector, meaning that up to fifteen characters will take part in each battle directly or indirectly.

The effect of support actions varies between characters. Some boost defense, others boost offense and more.

The original species are terribly powerful so even a single blow landed on the heroines could be lethal. It’s important to use cooperative and support skills to their full extent to block them.

The protagonist Hinako Shirai interacts with other students, mainly during her school life. At the beginning, the relationship with some of them is awkward, but Hinako can solve their problems and they will get involved with each other. This will bring various benefits. Their attitude towards Hinako in cutscene events will also change depending on the extent of their relationship.

It’s important to help other students, and to also meet them in social situations outside of school.

On top of the info mentioned above, we get to meet two of the girls that Hinako will meet.

Sanae Nishida comes from the same junior high school as Hinako, and they have known each other since then. She is a kind-hearted girl who cares for the protagonist. She belongs to the cooking club, and she’s actually good at it, but she’s not very good at asserting her own opinion.

Sarasa Morikawa is a genius dancer that excels at every kind of dance, including ballet. She became the top dancer of her class because Hinako retired due to her injury, and she is not convinced about her retirement. She feels a strong sense of rivalry against the protagonist, but she’s normally friendly with those around her thanks to her mature personality."

http://gematsu.com/2016/12/blue-reflection-details-world-game-flow

it could be a start for an ongoing series! I wonder how someone becomes a Reflector. the others could eventually become a Reflector too, even if it takes a sequel
