Blue Reflection: Second Light trailer shows dangers of Heartscape for Ao, Kokoro and Yuki

Blue Reflection: Second Light trailer showcases more of a drama than an RPG

If you have seen screenshots of the upcoming KOEI TECMO RPG Blue Reflection: Second Light, don’t be lulled into thinking you will be playing in a world of cute girls who sit around drinking tea, chatting with their friends and generally having fun.

After all, as the just released second Blue Reflection: Second Light trailer proves, the world these girls inhabit is anything but safe and relaxed.

Blue Reflection: Second Light tells the story of three students—Ao Hoshizaki, Kokoro Utsubo, and Yuki Kinjou — who wake up in a mysterious academy. The problem is, they don’t know who they are or why they are there.

The school itself is surrounded by water, and seems to be the only place in the new world they now find themselves in.

While trying to figure out a way to get home, even though having lost their memories they are not sure where home is, a catastrophic event suddenly occurs as a new area breaks open just outside the grounds of the academy.

The girls call this area Heartscape.

But, as they begin to explore Heartscape, they come across monsters whose only goal is to kill them. The girls must use a set of rings to transform themselves into ‘Reflectors’, so they can  fight and kill the monsters before they are killed themselves.

Yes, the dangers of Heartscape are real and, if the girls of Blue Reflection: Second Light are not careful, they may not survive long enough to be able to make it home.

 

 

What’s interesting about the just released Blue Reflection: Second Light trailer, is it spends as much time showcasing the girls’ back story and the drama of the game as it does the RPG and battle elements.

Yep, just like its predecessor the 2017 RPG Blue Reflection, Second Light appears to be a very deep game you will quickly be sucked into as you start to care about the girls trapped within it.

Developed by Gust, Blue Reflection: Second Light is the follow up to the popular Blue Reflection, and will be released on PC, Nintendo Switch and PS4 on October 21st in Japan, with a November 9th release in Europe and North America.

For PC, you can currently pre-purchase Blue Reflection: Second Light on Steam now.
