Blue Reflection is a role-playing game developed by Gust and published by Koei Tecmo. Set in an all-girls high-school in modern Japan, it follows Hinako Shirai, a ballet dancer whose career comes to an abrupt end due to a foot injury. Hinako grows cold and distant after this tragic event, but her life changes when she meets the magical Shijou twins, Yuzu and Lime, who grant her the power of a Reflector. Hinako gains the ability to shape and manipulate a parallel dimension known as “The Common”, but this other world is not without dangers of its own.
Blue Reflection follows a day cycle, which should be familiar to fans of JRPGs like Persona. In the morning, the player goes to school and interacts with their classmates, and after it ends, they can roam freely and choose different activities. Battles take place in The Common, and feature a party system with turn-based combat.
