Koei Tecmo shared a vague teaser last week that had people guessing either Atelier Ryza 3 or Blue Reflection news, and it ended up being the latter with a new trailer and a Japanese release date for Blue Reflection: Second Light.
Gust and Koei Tecmo announced Blue Reflection: Second Light in March for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC, along with two other Blue Reflection titles. One is the upcoming anime, Blue Reflection Ray, which is based on the first game. The other is a mobile and PC game called Blue Reflection Sun. The console game is called Blue Reflection Tie in Japan, but its title in the West is Blue Reflection: Second Light, which is the one that got a release date and debut trailer today.
Second Light features a new protagonist named Ao Hoshizaki, joined by two other girls, Kokoro Utsubo and Yuji Kinjou, in an abandoned school located in a separate world. None of them know how they ended up there, as all three girls have lost their memories. The three live together in this world while spending their time searching for a way to return to their world. Hinako Shirai, the protagonist of the first Blue Reflection, also makes a return with lost memories.
A Premium Box edition that includes a drama CD, costume, cloth poster, and bromide album will be available for 11,395 yen (~$102.90). A Special Collection Box version has everything from the Premium Box edition plus a school bag, bath towel, art book, and character charms for 22,100 yen (~$199.57).
