Conception II’s Story Is Roughly Twice The Size Of The First Game

By Spencer . March 8, 2013 . 12:20am

concep3We never thought we’d see a sequel to Conception, but Spike Chunsoft is turning their procreating RPG into a series. Conception II is in development for PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS. This game has the same systems where you can fall in love with female characters and bring your kids into dungeons. Your children surround enemies and exploit weak spots (actual directional spots) with the positioning battle system.


Spike Chunsoft doubled the amount of story for the main scenario in Conception II. You can also explore dungeons with your heroine and your kids. It’s like a family trip… to a monster filled dungeon.

    Oh god I love that protagonist design.
    It’s always nice to see the weirder niche games get support.

    • komiko12

      I say… he looks more likely to form a harem than the previous protag.

  • Raze

    Family trip to a dungeon…
    That doesn’t sound bad…

    • As Calvin dad would say: “It builds character!” :P

      • AndreasStalin

        Those camping trips never went as planned, did they?

  • So the Vita version uses in-game models during story segments and the 3DS version uses 2D portraits? Not sure which one I prefer.

    • Suicunesol

      “Vita version uses in-game models during story segments and the 3DS version uses 2D portraits…”

      Oh the irony… XD

      • What the hellll ????
        Vita OLED screen is perfect for 2D
        3DS screen is great for 3D images

    • I hope there is an option to switch to 2d potraits for the vita version, I mean it’s not like I dun like the in game models, personally it looks gorgeous. But I usually prefer 2d art

    • MikeTxn

      If Conception 1 was any indication, I don’t think so. The 2d portraits are part of the story segments, the screen with a 3d model is part of a dating-sim scene with one of the maidens.

      • Ah, I see. Thanks for the clarification.

    • Visa Vang

      I see what you did there.

  • guess I have a reason to pirate the first one now

  • Is it a bad sign tht when I saw the dungeon Mass Destruction is automatically played in my head?

    Calling it now, twintail-chan will be the main girl. 3D or 2D…… hmmm…

    *psst*localize the 1st game*psst*

  • MrSirFeatherFang
  • Romored

    I hope Spike-Chunsoft will actually deliver a localization effort for this new episode! The first one was announced for an EU/US release, but after the first press-release it was never heard about again. This one must absolutely come here, it has much more chance!

  • Zeonsilt

    The game is really looks good.Considering Vita3DS,it has a high chance of localization,especially for Vita.
    I really hope they add a portraitinterface change option,(something like Star Ocean 4 : International),since i want a 2D portraits on Vita version (3D conversations ruined Rune Factory Oceans[PS3 ver.] for me = ,2D is much better,imo ).

    • MrTyrant

      The previous game had 3d and 2d interface, it depends on the event. The more intimate ones (for example before getting your child) were in 3D, now other events with them (like a date) or the main story are 2D.

  • Zonic505

    Maybe we’ll get lucky & get this as a downloadable in the US.

    Also wonder if you can choose between 3D & 2D models/portraits in the Vita version, just to satisfy everyone.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      I hope so

  • Guest

    hahahaha my kids are going to save the world

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    *cross fingers* Since its on the 3DS It might see the light of day else where……or is this another game I have to import

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    So, both version have some difference huh. Well, as long as this game come here,i am going to get this game.^_^ After all, the first one on PSP is quite nice to play especially for fans of Jrpg and SMT demon breeding(here child breeding) style game lover lol.^_^

  • The character designs are very nice. So does this mean we can get the first one localized now? I have both 3DS and Vita. I don’t know which one you guy’s prefer, but I would get it for the Vita. Not necessarily because of the difference, but just because I love the feel of the Vita in my hands lol =^_^=

    EDIT: I do love the bigger screen though lol

    • I can agree with you there. The Vita’s bigger screen is what (hardware wise) pushes it above the 3DS for me. Now lets get this localized so I can actually get more games for it!

      • Agreed, I’m right there with you man. We needs more games lol =)

      • It’s not just the bigger screen but the quality of it as well that make the Vita more special to me… the 3DS XL screens have a fine size, but the low resolution does hurt quite a bit… ;_;

  • Z3

    The first game was actually really fun

  • Anyone Know what kind of game this is? Is it action, turn based, or strategy?

    • Turn based, dungeon crawling, dating Sim, RPG.

      • Tails the Foxhound

        That is fantastic, lol! Never change Japan!

  • Oh, man! I want this and the first game so much!

    Also, Natasha Bedingfield, so ahead of her time when she came out with this – most appropriate – song.

  • $24431191

    I wish the Vita version had 2D portraits.

  • Alex DC Webbs

    Yes please this needs localisation beating on baddies with my kids and waifu like a boss is my idea of a game. This is what the games industry is about crazy ideas with fun gameplay. Lets make this happen people.

  • Junko Enoshima

    Will this get localized? And are the babies…”made” different than in real life?

    • Yup the babies are made by infusing part of the parent soul into a container then TADA!

  • Please Nintendo, stick to your words and make your consoles the go-to platforms for localized games. ^_^

  • Prinny Dood

    I dont care which version as long as one of them is released overseas

  • Character designs look just as awesome as the first game. So, the game is actually pretty decent?
