Gust has revealed some new story details as well as loads of new screenshots for Blue Reflection: Sword of the Girl Who Dances in Illusions. Blue Reflection is an RPG which follows the story of Hinako Shirai, a schoolgirl who used to study ballet until an accident left her unable to dance.
After the accident Hinako began to withdraw into herself and shut out people. However after meeting sisters, Yuzuki Shijou and Raimu Shijou, she becomes a “Reflector” which gives her magical powers. Whilst in her Reflector form she can move about freely and so begins to hope that this form holds the key to her foot healing and enabling her to dance again.
Despite her new magic powers Hinako is still a student and so during the day will have to attend lessons. She attends an all-girl’s school and it’ll be important for Hinako to get to know the other students better and form true friendships with them. Different scenes will be triggered amongst the students depending on your “Interaction Level” which shows your closeness to other students.
Part of being a Reflector is helping the other students solve struggles and worries in their lives. These problems will not just be solved in the real world, Hinako will also need to jump into the world of humanity’s collective unconscious known as the “Other World”. In the other world you can solve their problems by looking for fragments of emotions that are causing their problems back in the real world.
Huge monsters known as “Pure Breeds” begin to appear in the real world and attack people, it will be up to Hinako and her friends to use the powers they gain from the Other World to fight against them.
Sounds interesting doesn’t it? 🙂
As a special bonus Gust has also released a special Christmas wallpaper which features Hinako and her friends, Yuzuki Shijou and Raimu Shijou, dressed as Santa Claus and reindeer.

Blue Reflection: Sword of the Girl Who Dances in Illusions is due out in Japan on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita on March 30. No word yet on if this is getting a Western release but I’m hopeful that it’ll make it’s way over here!
