After the previous detail, more news is coming for Blue Reflection: Sword of the Girl Who Dances in Illusions. This Blue Reflection details world setting, daily life, and more. Read the translated details below! [Thanks, Gematsu!]
Hinako Shirai is a girl who unable to dance the ballet she loves because of foot injury. In such a state, Hinako has shut out her her out and lives an everyday life of boredom. However, when she meets sisters Yuzuki Shijou and Raimu Shijou, she becomes a “Reflector” and gains a magical power.
Hinako attends a school full of individual personalities. The students there have troubles and worries on their minds. By communicating with these girls, Hinako will gradually grow. To continue being a Reflector, Hinako will try resolving the other students’ troubles. These problems cannot only be solved in the real world, they will go into the world of humanity’s collective unconscious, or the “Other World”.
While solving problems and spending time with students at school, monsters known as “Pure Breeds” in the real world will eventually appear and attack humanity. Hinako and their friends will use the power of their friends to face the Pure Breeds…
Hinako will have to juggle her time between normal life as a student, and her secret identity as a reflector. On Hinako’s first day, she wakes up early and gets ready to go to school. The game will give you glimpses of Hinako as she prepares. While on her way to school, in-class, at lunch, and so on, special scenes with other students will unfold. Triggering it depends on your “Interaction Level” which shows your closeness to other students.
After school, you can freely walk within the school. You may run into other students and go somewhere together. Certain students will be surrounded by a dark aura, which means that they’re troubled by a serious problem. By listening to their stories, it’s possible to receive missions to solve them. The causes of their problems do not only exist in the real world, but also in the Other World. In that case, you can solve their problems by looking for “Fragments” of emotions in the Other World. In the Other World, you’ll be able to find various items but also monsters. A battle will start when you encounter a monster. By overcoming difficulties in the Other World and discovering Fragments, you’ll understand true thoughts of the students. After learning their true thoughts, you will return to the real world.
When you return to the real world, the other student’s aura will disappear and their problem will be resolved. That marks that the mission is complete. You’ll then receive thank-you items. When solving big problems, in addition to receiving the Fragments, Hinako will also grow. By doing those, the bonds between Hinako and the other students will grow, and Hinako’s Interaction Level will increase.
While doing missions and solving problems, and spending each day with your friends at school, a disaster will occur in the real world. Pure Breeds will attack humanity. In order to protect her friends as well as humanity, Hinako and her friends will take on the Pure Breeds as Reflectors. When in a pinch, Hinako and her friends can unleash powerful blows against the monster. The battle against Pure Breeds is a harder fight than the battle against regular monsters. Hinako and company will maximize their power as Reflectors as well as recruit the help the students you interact with every day and have developed strong bonds as support.
