Hinako to dress as Aranea, Kaori as Cindy

The PlayStation 4 and PS Vita game Blue Reflection - Maboroshi ni Mau Shōjo no Ken ("The Sword of the Girl Who Dances in Illusion") is collaborating with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One RPG Final Fantasy XV. The results of the crossover might seem a little strange given Mel Kishida's cute character designs: the character Hinako and Kaori will get to wear the costumes of Aranea and Cindy.

Details of the crossover, including when it will be implemented, have yet to be divulged.

Blue Reflection was released on March 30. Besides Kishida (Sound of the Sky, Hana-Saku Iroha, Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland), who is also a supervisor, Keiichi Sigsawa (Kino's Journey, Allison), Yūsaku Igarashi (Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu), and Kōji Natsumi (Hazakura ga Kita Natsu, Girly Airforce) are in charge of series composition. The game is a "heroic RPG" set at Hoshinomiya Girls High School in modern day Japan, with themes of communication and connections between people. The story begins when Hinako meets Yuzuki and Raimu, who give her the power to transform into a magical girl known as a Reflector. In this form, she can move freely, and fights to achieve her dream of one day healing her foot injury so she can practice ballet again. In the Reflector form, Hinako gains blonde hair and heterochromatic eyes. Without knowing the reason why Yuzuki and Raimu ask her to fight, or whom she is fighting, Hinako takes on the task of being a magical girl for her one wish. However, as the game progresses, Hinako begins to question the purpose of her battles and what she is fighting.

If this collaboration seems like an odd choice, it has nothing on Final Fantasy XV's previous partner: Nissin Cup Noodles.
