Koei Tecmo and GUST have confirmed that Blue Reflection: Second Light will receive three free post-launch updates.
The first will be made available on 23rd November 2021, adding all-new Photo Mode filters like watercolour and hatching and the chance to take photos of the characters in Reflector form.
On 21st December 2021, the second update will add more new photo frames and idol poses available in Photo Mode and the ability to build a Photo Studio in the school development. Must Die will also be added, a more hardcore difficulty mode that “throws the students into extremely challenging battles, where the enemies are not only more powerful, but the likelihood of the enemies dropping items also increases.”
And then the third update will be pushed live on 14th January 2022, which will add a Pixel Art filter and unique poses to provide even more options for your snapshots.
This sequel to 2017’s Blue Reflection follows the adventures of three students – Ao Hoshizaki, Kokoro Utsubo and Yuki Kinjou – who find themselves transported to a mysterious floating academy, and must search for clues to find their way back home… with only their names as memories.
When a path leading to a new land appears one day, the students explore it but are soon met by a horde of deadly monsters. Through battling these creatures, they unlock powers that only seem to deepen the cryptic nature of their surroundings. The three friends must cooperate and struggle to make their everyday lives “as rich and as fun as possible.”
Their true feelings and personalities will be revealed each day that they remain trapped in this unknown world, and, as their bonds grow deeper, they will learn new strengths and abilities.
The famed illustrator Mel Kishida remains responsible for the series’ character designs, which will be used for both the game and the Blue Reflection: Ray anime series.
Blue Reflection: Second Light is now available at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
