More details and screenshots about Blue Reflection: Sword of the Girl Who Dances in Illusions are announced. Previously, we have seen the brief storyline about this heroic RPG which is made by Gust. The official website is also already up.
Blue Reflection: Sword of the Girl Who Dances in Illusions is based on the concept of girl and girl’s interaction. The game takes place in Hoshinomiya Girls High School. The protagonist will gain strength and confidence with the power of friendship. Thus, the genre of “heroic RPG” is born, giving the meaning of the mix between beautiful high school girls and fantasy.
The three main characters’ details and the minor character are also revealed.
Hinako Shirai (voiced by Yuki Takada)
Likes: Classical music
The protagonist. One year earlier, she was to compete in an overseas ballet competition that would be her gateway to success, but was forced to withdraw after she injured her foot. As an aftereffect of her injury, she has not been able to dance since, and has thus sealed up her heart. However, her body and mind have not forgotten the lessons she’s taken every day for the past ten-odd years, and she believes that one day her foot will heal.
Yuzuki Shijou (voiced by Marika Kouno)
One of the mysterious girls that gives Hinako her Reflector power. Several days after they meet, she suddenly shows up as a transfer student at Hinako’s school. She has an exceedingly cheerful sense of humor, a personality adored by everyone, and specializes in one-shot gags. Although they only just met, Hinako is first and foremost in her mind.
Raimu Shijou (voiced by Sawako Hata)
One of the mysterious girls that gives Hinako her Reflector power. She is Yuzuki’s sister and in the same year of school as her. Unlike Yuzuki, she has a results-based way of thinking, and puts other peoples’ feelings ahead of her own. Something she does share in common with her sister is that she treasures Hinako.
From left to right, clockwise: Ako Ichinose (likes: money), Chihiro Inoue (likes: flower), Yuri Saiki (likes: thinking), Fumio Taya (likes: music), Shihori Sugamoto (likes: accessories), and Rin Sanada (likes: going out).
The details of magical transformation is also released as follows:
By meeting Yuzuki and Raimu, Hinako obtains a magical power to fight as a magical girl known as a “Reflector.” But what is a Reflector? What is she fighting? Why is she fighting? While she still doesn’t really know why she obtained this power, she will throw herself into battle under the guidance of Yuzuki and Raimu.
Hinako doesn’t know why she is fighting nor the enemy she fights against. However, it is not something she is concerned with. This is because, while she’s a Reflector, her magical power lets her freely move her body.
Even if she is attacked by overwhelming threats and anxieties, as long as she is not defeated and continues fighting as a Reflector, her foot may one day heal, and she might be able to dance ballet once again. There is only one reason she became a Reflector and fights. And that is to fulfill her own desire.
However, as she continues fighting, Hinako gradually begins to take notice. Just who are these enemies that she’s fighting? And what is the meaning of these battles? By continuing to fight as a Reflector, what will happen to the world—?
Blue Reflections: Sword of the Girl Who Dances in Illusion will be available for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in the future.
