Today Koei Tecmo released a batch of screenshots and a trailer of its upcoming JRPG Blue Reflection.
On top of the assets, we hear more about the title’s gameplay, and more specifically how the protagonists can accumulate Either as they attack, defend or use support abilities. They can also perform an Ether Charge that sees them gather more power, and enables more powerful attacks. Once they have enough ether, they can perform an Overdrive, which allows them to use several skills in a row.
We also learn about the most fearsome enemies the reflectors will face, which have been translated in English as Sephira. Their power is absolutely devastating, and the girls will be able to request support from their friends. Up to four supporting characters can be selected before battle, and they will use powerful abilities that can damage the enemies or provide recovery or buffs. They can even provide battle advice via the game’s social network.
If enough ether is charged in a battle against Sephira, the reflectors can use their namesake ability Reflect, creating a barrier that can protects them against the most powerful attacks.
Below you can see the trailer, and a batch of screenshots showcasing combat, support abilities, and various menus, including the use of fragments to increase stats, the level up menu and the Sephira themselves.
Blue Reflection will release for PlayStation 4 and PC on September 26th in North America and September 29th in Europe.
