Blue Reflection is Gust’s last title in the “Beautiful Girls Festival” series following after Atelier Sofie and Nights of Azure 2. Taking part in its production includes character designer Mel Kishida (Atelier series) and writer Keiichi Shigusawa (Kino’s Journey, Alison, Sword Art Online: Gungale Online). Should be something good right?
Never did get into the Nier game on the PS3 but after playing the demo, I was quite excited about Nier:Automata. The post apocalyptic story is quite silly – aliens sent automatons to Earth and became a threat so big humans had to flee to the moon. Now they have come with a way to transfer their memories between androids to continue the ongoing struggle as the YoRHa resistance to win the planet back.

Day Persona 5 officially gets released in West! A book has also appeared on Amazon US called “The Art of Persona 5” by Prima Games which might be a localised version of this book so you might want to hold out until June 27th. However, it’s thinner at only 432 pages so we’ll have to wait and see…
Persona 5 Official Design Works is one big heavy artbook… Probably the biggest I’ve seen at 512 A4 pages, 1.6kg. It reminds me of the the free telephone directories that are distributed to homes in the UK but, the paper and print quality’s much better of course. Shows how much thought went into the game and why it’s oozing with quality, enough to play through a second time to platinum it.
Been 6 years since the last VC game, Valkyria Chronicles 3 was released on PSP. Now we finally have a new title but despite the Selvaria look-alike in the promotion illustration, it’s only set in the same universe and as the title “Valkyria Revolution” suggests, with the gameplay going through some “revolution”.
Characters from different Summon Night games find themselves landing on a mystery island where things falling from the sky is a everyday thing. As island dwelling Raj and Amu welcome the new characters, they try to workout what’s going on.
