Atlus To Bring Conception II Out West
Yes, the baby-making RPG.

A couple of years ago, Spike Chunsoft developed an interesting PlayStation Portable RPG called Conception: Please Have My Babies!, in which the male protagonist had to convince several girls to bear his star children who would then help him save the world. The title never quite made it to North America, but Spike later developed a sequel, Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars, on both Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita. The good news? Atlus USA announced this morning that Conception II will release in North America.
Atlus describes the story as follows:
Players take on the role of a young man beginning his training as a Disciple – a human gifted with the divine powers of one of the Star Gods, and one of the few who can fight the monsters that plague the world. These monsters emanate from the Pandora Labyrinth, which births these abominations at a prodigious rate. Worse yet, the Pandora Labyrinth is beginning to spawn labyrinths of its own, so it’s up to the Disciples to put an end to it. And even worse than that, a Star God’s power only resides within a human until the age of 18 and the need for new Disciples is at an all-time high. Meaning Disciples will have to combine their powers to “create” Star Children who can fight for them in battle.
The creation, obviously, requires some copulation. As your character will mate with other Disciples to create these star children, his bonds with them are important in order to produce both stronger kids and partners in battle. As you might have guessed by the title, there are seven different heroines. Players can easily see an enemy's weak spot in combat; there's also a chain drive gauge that builds as you fight. When this fills up, the foe is slowed down, and vulnerable to more damage.
Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars goes on sale in spring 2014 for $39.99 US. Be sure to check out our first gallery update for the game below!
