BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light follows the adventures of three students – Ao Hoshizaki, Kokoro Utsubo, and Yuki Kinjou – who find themselves transported to a mysterious floating academy, searching for clues to find their way back home, with only their names as memories. In the trial version, players will be able to experience both the Prologue and Story Demo of the game. In the Prologue, fans will play through Ao’s journey from the beginning, as she first wakes up in this dreamlike world, while the Story Demo lets fans learn experience the gameplay basics such as crafting, exploration, and battle. As a bonus, players who completes the Prologue will obtain “Bunny – Head Accessory” and the Fragment “Preparing for the Unknown” as exclusive bonuses when updating to the latest full version of the game.
Furthermore, Gust Studios announced a number of free updates arriving to BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light after the game’s initial release. The first update will hit November 23 and will include all new Photo Mode filters, including watercolour and hatching, along with the ability to take photos of the characters in Reflector form. On December 21, all new photo frames and idol poses will be available in Photo Mode, along with the ability to build a Photo Studio in school development, plus the addition of a more hardcore difficulty mode aptly named MUST DIE. The MUST DIE content 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. Additional Photo Mode updates will also be available January 14, 2022, including a Pixel Art filter, along with more unique poses to help add even more variety to your array of snapshots.
In addition, Gust Studios announced a costume collaboration between BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light and the upcoming Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream. For those who own both the “Summer Bikini” early purchase bonus for BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light and the limited time bonus “Comfy and Casual” from Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream, the costumes will be unlocked to wear across each respective game.
