Blue Reflection Second Light review

System: Switch
Release date: November 9, 2021
Developer: Gust
Publisher: Koei Tecmo

While the original Blue Reflection was met with a mixed reception, it showed a mature side of Gust that involved some of the developer’s best illustrations yet accompanied by a beautiful, intuitive, and seamless user interface that really complemented the overall atmosphere. The game involved magical girls who come into their powers unexpectedly before realizing the good they can do with it. It undoubtedly took big inspiration from the likes of Persona and Final Fantasy, but the distribution of these influences felt uneven and misguided, even if it was an RPG worth talking about. Blue Reflection: Second Light now fixes a lot of the issues of what made the first game’s wholesome RPG feel more frustrating than I believe it intended to be, and thankfully serves as a standalone sequel that doesn’t need players to have any familiarity with the first entry at all. The best part is? Blue Reflection: Second Light not only feels like Gust maturing as a studio, but the team finally coming to grips with working on Switch’s hardware.

The JRPG Blue Reflection: Second Light has received a 50 minute gameplay preview. This video goes through the beginning of the game and introduces the characters, setting, and battle system. It is all in Japanese, but the game will be getting a North American release and localization.

The full preview is included below.

Blue Reflection: Second Light launches on Switch on November 9, 2021. For more information about the release, read the details below:
