Koei Tecmo Reveals More Information about Blue Reflection

Blue Reflection is getting ever closer to its release date in the West, and Koei Tecmo has been giving us a bunch of information on this RPG. Today we get to meet the sisters Yuzu and Lime, as well as get into some more battle specifics. Despite going over some battle mechanics a couple days ago, all of this information is brand new.

Here’s the video introducing Lime and Yuzu:

Koei Tecmo has revealed most of this new information in a series of tweets. Here they are in order:

While we’re talking about battles, let’s recap how Ether works in helping the Reflectors defeat their foes:

When face-to-face with the Demons, the girls have a roster of magical attacks which they are able to utilize to defeat their foes. As they attack, defend, and use supportive abilities in combat, they will drain Ether, the source of their magical abilities. To accumulate this power they must perform an Ether Charge, which not only sees them gather more power – but also the ability to perform stronger attacks on their opponents. Once enough Ether is charged, the Overdrive ability is unlocked, allowing players to use several skills consecutively in exchange for this magical energy. Strategically using Overdrive is key in battle, as Ether is greatly depleted to allow the Reflectors to perform increasingly impactful attacks – leaving them with no choice but to perform an Ether Charge!

The Demons which inhabit The Common are not the only foes Hinako, Yuzu, and Lime will face, as devastating forces loom closer at every moment; the Sephira, gigantic creatures which harbor overwhelming powers and threaten to end the world.

If players accumulate enough Ether in a fight against the Sephira, the Guard ability is upgraded to Reflect. When a Reflector uses this ability they unleash their magical power to create a barrier which even the most overwhelming of creatures cannot penetrate.

Blue Reflection will release September 26 on the PlayStation 4 and PC.
