Today’s issue of Weekly Famitsu included a spread on the upcoming JRPG Blue Reflection, that will be released by Koei Tecmo’s label Gust in Japan for PS4 and PS Vita on March 30th, 2017.
Although the main battlefield for Reflectors is the “Other world,” with the progress of the story the real power will get invaded by giant enemies named “species.” While battling these monsters, Reflectors can receive the support of other students. Each reflector can count on the support of four different girls, and there are three reflectors. This means that it’ll be possible to fight reflectors with up to 15 characters including reflectors and supporter.
The extend of each character’s support varies depending on their personality. In the fight against the species, even in perfect conditions, it’s not unusual to end up in a bad situation even just by receiving a single blow. Keeping up the offensive facing enemy attacks and making full use of the fellow students’ support is the key to victory.
We also get to see a new enemy among those Species, named Yesod, it’s a monstrous prototype with overwhelming power.
Definitely cuter, are four of the young ladies who can offer support, Chihiro Inoue, Yuri Saiki, Saane Nichida and Sarasa Morikawa.
While reflectors fight their battles, normal students continue with their daily life, they wake up as normal in the morning, go to school, and go to bed normally when night falls. During these cycles, events can occur at school, in class, while having lunch break, after school and more. There will also be cases in which options are offered, and the answer can modify the affection with the student involved.
The in-game smartphone app “Frispe!” is also very important, and necessary to nurture relationships with the other students. It’s also possible to change how it looks thanks to dedicated themes.

If you want a better idea of the original direct feed image quality, you can check out the latest batch of screenshots released, and the first trailer that was published by Gust last month.
