Atlus Localizing Conception II, Coming To 3DS And Vita In Spring 2014

By Spencer . November 19, 2013 . 8:01am

Remember the Atlus teaser site with an ultrasound image of a baby? If you guessed it was for Conception II give yourself a high five! Atlus will localize Spike Chunsoft’s baby making role playing game and in the West it will be called Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars.

 

Conception SS (8) Conception SS (1)

 

While the game is a sequel to a PSP RPG only released in Japan, Conception II is a standalone story. You are a Disciple with powers from a Star God to fight monsters inside Pandora Labyrinth. The problem is there are too many monsters spawning. Since a Disciple’s powers expire when you turn 19 you need to create new disciples, which means "making" star children. Wacky premise aside, Conception II has a neat combat system where enemies have directional weak spots and there are dating sim-lite mechanics where you can build your relationship with the girls by giving them presents.

 

Conception II will be released is spring 2014 for Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita. The game will be $39.99 on either platform.

    EU aswell?

    • karldeck

      It is Atlus we are talking about here, still no word of the release date for SMT 4.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

      Atlus thinks Europe doesn’t exist~

      • Sal

        But NISA certainly does. They’ve been localizing Atlus’s 3DS games lately.

        • Armane

          Hopefully that’ll extend to Vita.

      • Hraesvelgr

        As far as Atlus goes, it doesn’t exist. They’ve never had a European branch, after all…

        • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

          i…i…was bei…ok.

  • Kronos

    Hell yes!!! Would have been weird to announce a big title before Japan (P5 maybe?)

  • Demeanor

    Wow, lots of good news lately for western Vita owners!!! Gotta get this!!! Someone should provide a list with dates of all the localized goodness we’re getting in the coming months! ^ ^

    • Yuuki

      The stuff I’m most excited for:

      Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc
      Demon Gaze
      Hyperdimenson Neptunia Idol PP
      Sorcery Saga
      Hatsune Miku Project Diva F(Vita Ver.)
      Final Fantasy X/X-2HD
      And now Conception 2
      I’m so glad I bought a Vtia…

  • Pdugna

    …I love you Atlus….if this weekend goes well with announcements I will cry tears of joy.

  • Barrylocke89

    Wow. It really WAS Conception. I was thinking it was going to be that hospital game someone mentioned before.

  • Renvile

    Looks really fun! Fingers crossed for minimal censorship and original VAs. Then to decide whether to get it on the 3DS or the Vita…

  • OlimacFTW

    Now i’m a bit happy. It seems that even with Sega as the current owner we’ll still have localized games after all.

  • Noire

    Huh? what is this tears of joy?

  • J_Joestar

    *does a double take*

  • Nas

    Tis the time for babies.

    Thank you ATLUS

  • http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/recognition/21421.html?type=4 Kashell

    I’m not a baby person, but I guess I can make an exception for an Atlus RPG.

    • Zizal

      The game made by Spike Chunsoft.

    • FlyingPony

      I want virtual baby. Babu babu.

  • JonathanisPrimus

    At $39.99 this is a retail release, correct?

    • almostautumn

      Who knows. Plenty of full-priced titles have been released digital-only for the Vita and 3DS. These niche Japanese titles tend to be digital only anymore, whether it’s Senran Kagura on 3DS or Atelier on Vita. Unfortunate, but oh well.

    • Hraesvelgr

      They’ve said it was retail, yes.

  • kylehyde

    Be retail please, be retail.

    Offtopic: Funny why I’m hearing Hans Zimmer music in my head?
    A person within a person we must go deeper.

  • MCoelho

    YEEESSSS, now i have to decide if i get it for Vita or 3DS

    • http://www.falgram.com/ Falmung

      The Vita version would probably be the best choice considering better visuals and Trophy support.

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        Depends on if it has decent 3D or not
        And how smoothly they run

        • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

          Some real salty crackers on here.

          Trying your hardest to convince people to buy the Vita version huh?

          Stop making bets on Neogaf. Go to salty bets and choose wisely, if you want to win.

    • British_Otaku

      It feels like it is a Vita game first, even if the 3DS demo worked fine.
      The game doesn’t seem to take advantage of the second screen at all, so you may as well go for that (especially if you are one of those trophy weirdos) unless you really like your 3DS.

      • An Tran

        I think the only reason to get the 3DS version would be if you only own a 3DS.

  • Erena Arisu

    i rather want TtT2 in english instead of this but i wont complain.
    conception 2 rather a weird game tbh

    • Kronos

      It would be weird if Atlus did something that wasn’t weird.

      • DyLaN

        I thought the EO series is relatively saner than most SMT games? For one it doesn’t have Mara or any similar thing in it IIRC.

  • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

    I’ll admit, never would have seen this one coming. Buying it day one though~.

  • AlphaSixNine

    I love you Atlus USA! Never stop being awesome!

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Didn’t see that coming at all… O_O
    Then again, that teaser may have rang a few bells…

  • http://www.segalization.com/ Kuronoa

    Cool
    What is the difference in versions (besides graphics)? I have both handhelds.

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      Not much really. Same ol same ol on the Vita
      Will be getting it on the 3DS like I did with Virtues Last Reward
      But its more of a Vita game anyhow

      • Enzo

        I kind of hate how I have the same question as Kuronoa, and you are one of the only ones to answer, but people are downvoting you as if you’re wrong. If you are wrong, why aren’t they speaking up? I want to know an objective view of the difference between the 3DS and Vita versions. If there is no significant difference, I’ll get the 3DS version solely for the fact that it’s easier to switch carts with the 3DS than the Vita.

        edit: If it is in fact a physical release. If it’s digital, Vita for several reasons. The main reason would be I have more space available on my PS Vita memory card than my 3DS SD card (both are 16GB).

        • Cazar

          He is both right and wrong. They are they same game, but it’s because of that if you have both systems there isn’t really any reason to go with the 3DS version. The Vita version will look much better, have trophies, and won’t have limited game saves. And unlike Virtue’s Last Reward, this game doesn’t benefit as greatly from a second screen. Rather than adding functionality, the second screen just removes some of the clutter from the top screen down to the bottom screen. But given the significantly higher resolution of the Vita’s screen, even with said clutter there is more available screen space.

          • Enzo

            I already know there’s going to be a resolution difference, but I honestly don’t care about a game’s resolution. Also, trophies (at least for me) are not a reason to get the Vita version. The save files thing is some difference I didn’t think about, but doesn’t apply to me.
            Oh, I also have a 3DS XL so screen size is the same. So screen space is negated with that. I would get the Vita version, but I personally find it much easier to switch carts with the 3DS (which IS relevant to me as I have many 3DS games, and a growing Vita collection). If the 3DS, for example, has framerate issues or have some other technical issues that could be a hindrance that the Vita version doesn’t, then I will get the Vita version no question. However, your reasons you gave not only point out that you didn’t fully read Kuronoa’s comment, it also has relatively little significance to what I personally think matters (not that you would have known).

          • Cazar

            By screen space I meant the amount of space to place graphics within the screen, which is determined by the screen’s resolution, not it’s size. You asked for more insight and I provided it. No need for rudeness.

          • Enzo

            I have no idea why you think I’m being rude. The only thing that can be perceived that way is the fact that I pointed out you didn’t fully read Kuronoa’s comment, which would be directed towards the fact that graphics includes resolution quality. Also, just because the resolution is up doesn’t necessarily mean that it uses the extra space it can use within that capacity. Also, I said significant differences, which I also pointed out that you wouldn’t have known the ones you pointed out were insignificant to me. I’m also not saying I don’t appreciate the reply, but I am certainly looking for differences more detailed than something that can just be assumed by the hardware itself.

          • Cazar

            I read kuronoa’s comment just fine. My comment was directed towards you, explaining the reason behind Laer’s downvotes and further explaining the differences between the two versions. I was not simply making assumptions from the hardware; I explained the second screen functionality of the game. During battle it moves some of the graphics from the top screen to the bottom screen. The resolution does matter because these are 2D graphics that take up more space on a lower resolution screen. If the Vita’s screen resolution were equal to that of the 3DS’s it would look very cluttered due to not having a second screen for interface graphics. And regardless, most people would still consider higher resolution to be a significant difference, as it makes games look noticeably much sharper. At least more of a difference than taking two more seconds to switch game cards. You are going to waste more time contemplating over which version to get than you ever could while switching game cards. I realize you said it matters to you, but at this point I have to be honest, why would that ever be a serious concern, even with a lot of games? Do you switch games every 5 minutes?

          • Enzo

            I don’t think you understand, but it would be a waste of my effort to retort what you said. As for the switching of carts, it is not a matter of “two seconds” and I’m not always at home when I want to switch carts. While it may seem like having smaller carts is better on the go, I simply find them harder to take with me because they are harder to keep track of. I think we don’t play games the same way, I really do not think we value the same things when playing a game. I’m sure this is where the misunderstanding comes from.

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            Nah the game doesnt have framerate issues.

            Frame rate stays the same in 3DS vs 2D anyway.

            You can go look at the comparison I posted

            The battle start noise annoys me lol

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            The Vita version is strange imo (interface wise,Eh guess I like 2 screens, whatever.)(back to playing tales of hearts)

            This is how the Vita version looks
            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYOff8GFWKM
            and this is the 3DS version
            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a7g5j9P3_-c

            (evidently not as clean/smooth but whatever,will look fine on the screen)
            And you should be able to take screenshots on the 3DS anyway. 3DS has screenshot features

          • An Tran

            Does the 3DS version itself have a screenshot version? Because the 3DS console does NOT have system-level screenshot system; only the Vita has that kind of function.

          • Enzo

            I see. I was already expecting the Vita version to be cleaner considering the higher resolution. After seeing the videos, I’m probably going to hold off my decision if/when demos become available. If there are no demos available, I’ll probably read up the reviews on both before making a decision (most likely going to look at how people feel about the UI on either system).

          • Cazar

            The 3DS does not have a built-in screenshot feature… but I never even said anything about screenshots.

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            Must be in the next update then

          • TheExile285

            come on guys, its a preference thing. lets leave it at that

        • An Tran

          If they release it digital-only, I’ll have to get the 3DS version. Vita mem cards are too expensive, so the space is ultra precious.
          But since this is Atlus, they’ll likely do a physical release (hopefully with limited edition preorder stuff :D)

    • PreyMantis

      Just the usual: 3DS with 3D and helpful things on the second screen; Vita with just better graphics.

  • Kayseur

    I… wasn’t expecting this, or well, maybe a bit thanks to the teaser, but not that much. I don’t know how the game is though, I only tried the demo.

    Well, anyway, I wanted more turn based RPG on my Vita, so I’ll take it.

  • Go2hell66

    damn it was so obvious it was conception, why didn’t i think of that

    but what gonna happen with the 1st game?

    • TheExile285

      we will ignore it since its not connected to the 2nd :V

      • Go2hell66

        so they aren’t gonna rename it or something?
        everyone’s gonna be wondering what happened to the 1st game

        • TheExile285

          you make a good point. it is weird that they just are naming it Conception[Insert Subtitle].

          http://atlus.com/conception2/

          They ignored the numbering with Growlanser IV

        • British_Otaku

          Everyone will use Google. We had enough silly renumbering back with Final Fantasy and Dynasty Warriors.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        just like Akiba’s Trip 2 if they localize it, maybe…

        • TheExile285

          I hope we get AT2 too. That is up to Gung Ho USA and atm, it doesn’t look like they have any plans to bring it over. That could change though.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            yeah, just like this game.. Conception II sales were rather quite poor, and even brought thoughts about never going outside japan. However, this is the outcome

  • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

    While I don’t personally like women in the sexual way (clarification obviously needed to be made), this looks like a fun game, and I will totally get it.

    • Arizato

      “While I don’t personally like women”

      What does that mean?

      • karldeck

        Kanji Tatsumi.

      • César H. Sandoval

        I think it’s clear enough, Gay people play videogames too.

      • Go2hell66

        homosexual maybe?

        • Arizato

          Yeah, probably? Maybe it’s just me, but the way he wrote it made it sound more like “I dislike women”.

          • Hraesvelgr

            Indeed, if you cherry-pick a few words from a complete phrase, it can be made to look like an awful, awful statement. This is a common practice in journalism and politics.

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            And in GARRRMEEE JOURNALISSSSMMMM

          • kthanxyousuck

            Sure if you cut off the “in the sexual way” end.

  • TheExile285

    Atlus USA….. I friggin love you guys!

    • Learii

      same here

    • TheRealMalek

      Atlus Europe i … oh wait….

    • Ric Vazquez

      Ready to mate? lol

  • Zonic505

    Boy, Atlus sure DELIVERED with that teaser!!

    …..I’m sorry, it was just so tempting…

    • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

      T_T
      *slow clap*

      I don’t know how you CONCEIVED this, but … good work.

      • psycho_bandaid

        IMMACULATE.

    • Kronos

      I was waiting for these to show up lol

    • Sentsuizan_93

      Atlus is the mother and Spike Chunsoft is the father. :P

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        Niintendo’s the great grandfather god then.

        ( They bought quite a few shares into Dwango, Spike Chunsoft is a subsidiary)

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      Conception II GET!!

    • Ric Vazquez

      LET THE MATING SEASON BEGIN!

  • malek86

    I wonder if people will aks themselves “wait, there was a Conception 1?”.

    • César H. Sandoval

      Yeah, they should take the “2″ out ane lieave only the subtitle, this is gonna be like when we got FFVII right after FFIII lol

  • Kai2591

    And thus, another ‘impossible’ localization happened… :)

    • Renaldi Saputra

      yeah, even though sales were quite poor in Japan, but Atlus is sooo kind

      • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

        they charted in top 30 both version first week

        • British_Otaku

          Top 20 at 5th (18,872) and 16th (5,072) respectively.
          The sales aren’t quite terrible but I’m sure Spike would have wanted to the 3DS market be a little larger and more Vita owners so they sell around or above 30K like they did on the first week for Conception 1 apparently.

          • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

            Spike sent double units of Vita version since this is the first time it appeared on Nintendo.

          • British_Otaku

            Since, they weren’t close to selling out in the first or second week for either system, it would had been the same if they swapped the numbers around or halved them.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          nah that’s because the game was released before the killer games did their action (MH, Pokemon)

          even though on top 30, but, still, the sales number were rather quite poor for a sequel

  • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

    pretty nifty. anyone knows if the game is actually any good?

    • Kronos

      Just check some of the previous articles about the game, they explain how the mechanics work and from what I’ve read, it sounds interesting to play.

    • Oscar Alberto Abrego Suarez

      Nothing revolutionary but here is what the first one was about:

      -You can name the MC, he has dialogues bu he is unvoiced i like this kind of character.

      -You are in some kind of school were you meet the 12 maidens (The other being your cousin) and apparently they know that he is the marebito (World savior) adn so they KNOW their roles as Maidens.

      - You can create a child with the maidens at any time even if your relationship is bad and no guys no sex (What a letdown isnt it?), its like they (You and her) put your souls in a doll and then from that doll comes the child.

      -The exploration is like in P3 and 4 where you choose locations rather than walking. It uses a calendar system where there are 3 hearts where it stands for character interaction meaning you have 3 chances per day to chat with the maidens and answering questions. However the day doesnt end when the hearts are gone you must choose the day to end via the menu.

      -The dungeons are random generated and you can explore it as many times as you want and the day wont end when leaving the dungeon so you can pace the game as you want unlike Persona 3 and 4.

      -You see the enemies so you can avoid them if you want.

      -About the party you can have up to 12 childs plus you, however the party is divided by teams where Team A is you the MC, team B, C and D are your children where a team have up to 4 childs (3×4=12) but team C and D must be unlocked (I didnt).

      -In battle you face one enemy at a time (I dunno if you can swtich) where an enemy has weak points. These weak points are L(left),R(Right),F(Front) and B(Back), so an enemy with a F weak point must be attacked in the front and an enemy with a L weak point must be attacked on the left.

      Basically you choose a skill or attack and then choose the position where you will attack (L,R,F,B), luckily you can put all a team per place (This only applies to the childs, the MC can be in any place wheter its already occupied or not by another team). Do note that a team receives damage as a whole, meaning that if Team B is attacked all the four childs will receive damage so you must be careful when placing them.

      Conception 2 seems to be the same, again there is nothing sexual in it besides innuendos (Like in Ar Tonelico) as the whole process is just that MC and the girl sync their souls and put it into a Matroshka doll that gives birth to a golem ready to fight.

      • FlyingPony

        “You can create a child with the maidens”

        “..no guys no sex”

        Pretty sure guy on guy did not produce any child. Its either adopting or surrogate to create the family..

  • ZnTxn

    I’m so happy about this!

  • Chrystofax

    Hmm, So I was right after all, Yay

  • Kronos

    The link in the article leads to a pic of the new DOA5 character, I know she has a baby-face but come on :p

  • karldeck

    The teaser site is still the same, so whats up?

  • Demeanor

    Wow we can even name children? XD seems legit!

    • Oscar Alberto Abrego Suarez

      Yes, every one of them.

      They come with random name if you dont feel creative.

  • Dsvkb

    I know in Japan the Vita version really outsold the 3DS version. Is the Vita version actually better?

    • TheExile285

      Vita version has some enhancements and was marketed more by Spike. Honestly though, neither version did well which is another reason of many that its so surprising that we are getting this.

      • British_Otaku

        Can you be more exact about the Vita enhancements? I thought the games were identical aside from the obvious trophies, screenshots and 2 screens vs 1 screen + touch pad thing.

        • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

          … 3DS should be able to take screenshots

          • British_Otaku

            It should, yeah. I don’ want any of the small library of games that have the option in the software itself, the most recent one, Toriko Ultimate Survival locks you out of it at times and doesn’t take the bottom screen into account. >_>

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            Didnt they make it system wide? Like on the WiiU?

          • Hinataharem

            Nope. Game specific.

    • kthanxyousuck

      I don’t think this game would be more marketed for a console that touts family gaming….But I guess you could sit it right next to your Pokemon X & Y. I probably will LOL

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      Chunsoft marketed the Vita version and they provided a bigger shipment

  • Tenshiken

    Wasn’t Atlus making fun of Senran Kagura? And now they are localizing Conception 2? Either way, the tables have turned. (that’s a good thing)

    • Anoia

      It seems that certain employee at Atlus US doesn’t get the final say in what games come over. Lucky for us.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      Senran Kagura was by Marvelous AQL, so it’s XSeed’s job who have been collaborated with Marvelous USA to bring the game

  • Roberto

    I did not expect but i liked
    Good job Atlus

  • cyberkinghardy

    I can finally make my own soccer team.

  • DyLaN

    I will be honest, I squee when I saw the title of the article even though I saw it coming. Bring on the conception puns!

  • IS | 桂木

    ATLUS SO BASED YOU’D THINK LIL’ B WORKED THERE

    • JonathanisPrimus

      Yeah, Lil B probably chose to publish RIPD: The Video Game.

  • brian

    YESSSSSSS.

  • Cheesy04

    YES YES YES!!! Thank you Atlus!

  • Renaldi Saputra

    wow, atlus.. just wow
    you’re sooooooooooooooooooooooo kind even though the sales were quite poor in Japan

  • http://moonlitasteria.wordpress.com/ Moonlitasteria

    Wow, that was kinda of a surprise, but based on the clues, not really.
    Now all I have to decide is whether to get the Vita or 3DS version

    • http://www.falgram.com/ Falmung

      What would be your criteria on deciding which version to get? Whenever a 3ds vs. Vita version comes into question I always choose the Vita version. Then again I do love trophies and taking screenshots on the Vita.

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        You can take screenshots on the 3DS.

        Eh you get them on the platform they fit and run better on.

      • Guest

        Well, once more info is available I can compared. Although, since I will be getting my Vita for Christmas ( and probably not many titles)I will be getting it for that system.

  • Sergio Macellaro

    Good news.

    Now someone annouce please Exstetra and make me a happy panda!!!

    • Renaldi Saputra

      if this got localized, pretty sure Extetra will be done so by Atlus if they’re willing to..
      only without XSeed, NISA, or Aksys..

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      That’s a kuso-ge.. You sure you want kusoge?

      • British_Otaku

        Can you give some reasons why you think it is a kusoge?
        I don’t see any reason not to ask for a kissing RPG otherwise. >_>

        • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

          Ryouga Saotame is playing it,you damn well know its a kusoge

          • Renaldi Saputra

            maybe I know what you mean..
            MC is the strongest and most important

        this is kind of kuso-ge too, so why not?

        • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

          That one is a really bad kusoge

          • Renaldi Saputra

            idk, but from what I saw with the trailer, well, the game was rather so-so to quite poor.. it’s just like a generic RPG only with some unique features..

            from the rating on amazon, well yeah Extetra got lower rating than Conception II

      • Sergio Macellaro

        That’s relative:

        GoW Ascension IS a SHIT GAME, but the press says not….At least Exstetra have a gorgeous artwork and isn’t a Dungeon Crawler.

        My personal preference is the rest of TiTs games (the 2 ” trails of flash” games plus the new one), but….It will take time…

        • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

          When all the characters have the same face design, you know its a kuso-ge

  • Greg

    2014 is gonna be epic as hell! But damn my wallet is gonna cry next year. Another game to add to my wishlist.

    2014 3DS Wishlist: Bravely Default, Conception II, Ironfall, Super Smash Bros.

  • DesmaX

    “Since a Disciple’s powers expire when you turn 19 you need to create new disciples, which means “making” star children.”

    heh

  • Neppygear

    Yes. Yes! This is the best thing any branch of Atlus has ever done since P4 was first released.

  • Keko

    Haha! Time for waifus, sons and daughterus!

    • Kai2591

      Indeed! It is time for them!

    • God

      Your profile picture couldn’t be more fitting.

  • Yvonne Tsang

    Man, Atlus got balls.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      always had

  • Arcana Wiz

    Yesss! glad to see that Atlus continue to localize niche stuff :)

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Atlus never let down their fans <3

    • Strain42

      Until they do…and then people start screaming that Atlus doesn’t care about their fans…it always seems to be one extreme to the other, doesn’t it?

    • Go2hell66

      lets wait for the 24th before we start saying that…

  • Leon_Tekashi

    I actually thought NIS America was going to pick this up eventually. Nice work Atlus! They still got those balls of steel.

    • bigboss09

      NIS America will publish this game in Europe

      • Leon_Tekashi

        Still good.

  • http://mmv-wii.proboards.com/index.cgi Hero of Legend

    Can you find out if it’s coming to retail or digital only on both platforms?

  • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

    Getting 3DS version for the maps and stuff on touch screen.

  • dynamic-zx

    wow, thanks Atlus! didn’t expect this at all.

  • Kitestwinblades

    This was Teased Just 4 days ago. The news itself feels kind of Premature. but then again, so is birth in the actual game ( ̄ー ̄)
    THANK YOU ATLUS!

  • majestix1988

    atlus is so evil………making us to have big responsibilities on games(like teaching us to be good boyfriends on persona series(3 or 4) now…becoming a father

  • revenent hell

    Oh the dilemma I face…
    I like everything I have viewed of gameplay and such, its just the “star children” I have issue with.

  • Muffum

    Whoa now what.
    I mean what.
    I mean who in the what.

    I’ll probably get the game, but I expected hell to freeze over before it got released outside of Japan.
    Though maybe it has. Someone should check on that.

    • shinserph

      I did, it’s indeed frozen. According to testimony, it happened the day that teaser went up.

  • Learii

    oh thx Atlus I be waiting for more game
    should I get a vita version or 3DS version hmm

  • darkbartz

    Well, this is one obvious outcome. Atlus being Atlus I supposed. Do wish we got the first one too. Hey Atlus if this one does well, PSN release for the first? Slimmer hope than Atlus releasing TtT2 but still…

  • Lazulis

    RETAIL?! Or digital? I must know! Shame about the 1st one prob never being localized. Now gimme my kissing rpg, akibas trip & pl vs aa and my localization dreams will come true!

    • http://www.fogalchemist.com/ caleb1993

      Well, I don’t want to instil too much hope, but one of Xseed’s employees is lobbying for Akiba’s Trip 2 to get localized, especially since they’ve done Senran Kagura.

      • GH56734

        Didn’t they consider the first one for a while then announced they are dropping it?
        As for the second, It’s published by Sony in Korean and Chinese too so it has some chances to be localized by them (they did so with an obscure aquatic game back in 2009, I think)
        … I’d prefer Xseed do Game Retro Challenge 3 however.

        • M’iau M’iaut

          Let’s keep things on the subject of this game and not on wish lists please. Thanks.

        • InfectedAI

          What aquatic game?

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        …. But Akiba 2 is bad.
        Akiba 1 is the only good Akiba game

        • Renaldi Saputra

          I can see from the rating on amazon.jp.. yeah they prefer the first one

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            Akiba has no soul or substance

            I’d rather go to a place with Soul and Substance
            Like Akihabara.

    • GH56734

      PL VS AA was announced already. Nintendo-published in the US and Europe in early 2014. Where have you been :D

      • Lazulis

        huh, looks they did a ninty direct thing. I don’t watch those. also, there’s been no news on it recently or how it’s going. there’s been more ace 5 coverage than pl vs aa. NA just has the vague 2014 date, while PAL has early 2014…

  • Kornelious

    I KNEW IT!!! I love you Atlus! <3

  • DivinePhoenix69

    Never really payed much attention to this series but this announcement has me interested now. Anyone know if this will be a retail or digital release(or both?).

    • Renaldi Saputra

      nah we haven’t known ’bout that..
      and they only said that they’ll localize it but don’t know when

  • Bigabu Beaze

    Think this gives Metal Max 4 a better chance?

    • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

      Hahaha, no.

      • GH56734

        But Atlus DID localize the only English Metal Max game, aka Metal Saga for PS2 back in 2005.
        Why not another time :)

        • Lynx

          -2005

          There’s your answer

      • Bigabu Beaze

        Jeeze man crush my dreams.

        • Herok♞

          Dudes just being honest.

          • Bigabu Beaze

            He chose to say it that way tho.

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        Tis the change in artstyle

  • ZekeFreek

    Truly the best way to get pussy is to give girls random shit you find in caves and abandoned buildings.

  • Malon

    Does the game have any DLC ? I live in France and since it has only been announced for the US, I plan to import it, but I also don’t want to face the not-compatible-psn problem.

    • Oscar Alberto Abrego Suarez

      So far only the Daganrompa monobear DLC.

  • surakian

    Bless Atlus. I can finally experience the joys giving life to star children and having them fight for me!

  • Razlo

    Loved the demo of the first game on PSP and I never expected this to hit here. I will totally be getting this.

  • http://www.carpefulgur.com SpaceDrake

    So odd that they decided to move on the sequel when they passed on the original. More power to them, though!

    • DyLaN

      Well, the original is on PSP.

    • ZnTxn

      Seeing how the original was on the PSP, they had to abort that plan.

      • TheExile285

        lol

      • kthanxyousuck

        LOL I see what you did there!

  • Crazy_O

    YES!
    Now we just have to hope that they don’t decide to remove a language, just add both! DLC or whatever.

  • GH56734

    Awesome :D
    Yet somehow weird they are calling it “Conception II” , you’d think they would drop the number since the first one wasn’t even localized.
    I hoped Nayuta no Kiseki would have the same luck…

    • M’iau M’iaut

      I think the days of being to pull a Tales of Destiny II or other complete rename are pretty much over. The target audience knows what Conception is and what Conception II is, me thinks.

  • majestix1988

    good thing on this one is Vita TV Compatible + Atlus Release Date (it would be a good launch game for Vita TV

  • James Williams

    Is the only difference in versions the graphics?

  • Hraesvelgr

    I welcome the oncoming downvotes, but maaan, there are so many better games that they could’ve picked up over this one.

    • Go2hell66

      such as?

      • KuroNathan

        7th dragon 2020 pt 1 and 2!
        Valkyria Chronicles 3
        PSO2
        Etc
        etc

        • Go2hell66

          im pretty sure all those games are out of atlus’ hands unless they were approached by sega, they can’t just go and localise whichever games they want

          *edit*
          wait sega bought atlus almost forgot lol
          guess its possible then.
          unlikely but possible

        • DesmaX

          Those are PSP games

          Not even Xseed want to work with them

          And PSO2 is a whole another story

        • almostautumn

          Why you think SEGA would allow a different company to handle their games is beyond me. That isn’t how localization works, and if you’re going to clambor for it you might want to do some research first about how it actually goes.

      • Hraesvelgr

        What about the PSP release of Eternal Punishment? I’m well aware of how horrendous PSP sales were, even during its glory days, and that the first two Persona games weren’t hugely popular, but I’m not really convinced something like this will do much better, if at all better.

        • Go2hell66

          Eternal Punishment is a really dated game now, i’m sure its safer for them to localise something more recent

          • FlyingPony

            I do hope for localize if Eternal Punishment 2 or remake if it ever happen.

            Hell, any games that KuroNathan list above.

    • Oscar Alberto Abrego Suarez

      Nah this game will be great.

      And P2 is on a dead system, its done for.

    • British_Otaku

      As much as I want E.X. Troopers and Valkyria Chronicles 3 and am pretty sure either of them are better experiences, that isn’t really a reason to complain over something getting localised which is unrelated entirely.

    • almostautumn

      Like what?
      Don’t forget that the crazily desired stuff like E.X. Troopers, Valkyria Chronicles 3, Type-0, Fantasy Life, and many more will NEVER be handled by companies outside of their parent companies, and it isn’t in Atlus/Xseed power to pick any of them up.

      • Hraesvelgr

        I’m not really sure I’d consider EX Troopers “crazily desired”… Personally, I’m not even sure why Capcom put money into it.

        • almostautumn

          …there’s no way you’ve played it. E.X. Troopers is one of the most engaging, entertaining, and downright solid videogames released for consoles across this entire gen. Very simple game, but extremely fun and one of the tightest gameplay experiences around.
          Why it flopped is beyond me, and I suspect beyond just about anyone else who has played it as well. The game is straight up pristine.

          But besides that! What other titles are you talking about?

        • British_Otaku

          E.X. Troopers has quite a large cult following, a good number of Lost Planet and Megaman fans are hungry for it, the importers (including myself)and small player base enjoyed it immensely (my game of the year).

          It isn’t on the level of Senran Kagura, Mother/Earthbound anything or Yakuza/Valkyria Chronicles as far as noise, but it gets mentioned frequently with an uproar of support and even the page on Capcom Unity to support the localisation isn’t doing too bad.

          Link: http://www.capcom-unity.com/capcom_games_discussion/go/thread/view/7341/30030505/ex-troopers-localization-support-topic-ps3-3ds-title

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            The game is amazing on the 3DS. I want it here.

            Level 5 also needs to localize all their games

  • http://www.falgram.com/ Falmung

    0_0 OH MY GOD! Buying this day one and any collector’s edition they might offer.

  • Herok♞

    SO SEGA DIDN”T SCREW ANYTHING UP! This is awesome news now we all know for sure Atlus is doing business as usual.

  • vileBrenman

    Thanks based Atlus! No really though this is great! Now all we need is akiba strip 2 and all my localization dreams will be true.

  • vileBrenman

    Oh i hope we get that monokuma dlc they had for this

    • http://Youtube.com/Dyjuan1 Rising Overlord

      Hopefully we well Atlus is not the type to leave DLC behind.

  • RazeXI

    so in layman’s terms what’s this game play like . _ .

    • http://Youtube.com/Dyjuan1 Rising Overlord

      3 Kittens in two sets of mittens.

    • Oscar Alberto Abrego Suarez

      Dungeon Craling RPG with date sim elements pretty much with party creation.

  • British_Otaku

    Brilliant news, I enjoyed the demo for what it was worth but not enough to import the game. I hope Europe’s localisation comes too without an issue but I guess importing the American Vita version (even if ideally I want to play on the 3DS) is pretty dope as well.

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      IF we get Amazoness we’ll have too many dungeon crawlers XD

      • British_Otaku

        I know that too well as I haven’t finished any of the Etrian Odyssey games yet. >_>

        I still want Ages of Amazones to come around and probably will import a copy before the year ends even if the infamous pervy portable games like Senran Kagura are making it over and uncensored in spades.

  • Heriel

    BASED ATLUS STRIKES AGAIN ;___;

  • Oscar Alberto Abrego Suarez

    Ha ha ha ATLUS surprised me with this, the Sega bought out will work just fine for ATLUS USA it seems.

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    My army of wives and children will finally be a reality =^_^=

  • DarthSithZero

    Mind 0 Next please

    • almostautumn

      That’s the one I’m waiting for also. Unforunately though, with Demongaze coming out soon it’d be a pretty inopportune time to release that anywhere near it. Even if it were picked up it probably wouldn’t be released until late 2014.

  • AndreasStalin

    YES! My Vita awaits thee babymaker.

  • cloudcaelum

    So no Persona 5?..

    • Oscar Alberto Abrego Suarez

      The 11/24 teaser site has Teddie in it so P5 doesnt seem to be ready for announcement.

      Spect news in 2014

      • cloudcaelum

        Oh, thanks for this. I’m relieved now.

  • Betrayer

    Well, I’m happy with this.

  • Kaetsu

    THANK YOU ATLUS!

  • Yan Zhao

    More niche JRPGs localized is always good news! Now the question is, Vita or 3DS, hmmm.

  • Mister_Nep

    Awesome news. This is one series I didn’t think would actually get localized, but I’m happy it is. This is a definite purchase!

  • SirRichard

    We’re entering an interesting time for localisation studios, aren’t we? Games that seemed like they’d never have a chance are getting picked up left and right, it’s promising.

  • http://vindictushots.tumblr.com/ Okuni-chan

    All my soul are belong to Atlus…
    I AM SO EXCITE OMG!!!!! *cheeers*

  • nathaniel

    all of my yes :)

  • Rinne111

    Nis America will probably localize this for Europe

    • Romored

      I hope so, I would buy it D1.

  • Ganali Castillo

    Sweet baby Jezuz. All these games in Febuary right on my birthday :)

  • Raltrios

    All the fans that wanted Atlus’ babies…now, you CAN!

  • http://twitter.com/puchixseda puchinri

    Awwww. So you can’t romance your guy friend? ;o;
    Well, I’ll still pick this up~. I hope it’s as fun as it looks. ^u^

    And while we’re on the subject of localization. . . what’s the chance of a DS title of their’s coming over on e-shop only? Or is that just never gonna happen? ;u;

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      The game play is really innovate, i was really impressed when i played the first games demo and i can say it’s still fun this time around having played the second games demo

      • http://twitter.com/puchixseda puchinri

        Oh, yay! I’m glad to hear that. I’m looking forward to playing it~.

  • Devinja

    This gives me hope for that girl RPG and other niche stuff. Glad to see Atlus is still Atlus afterall.

    • http://twitter.com/puchixseda puchinri

      Which is that~?

      • Devinja

        Sorry, ToshinToshi where you collect monster girlsto fight for you. Siliconera had a article a bit ago about Iit.

        • http://twitter.com/puchixseda puchinri

          Oh~! Haha, I wouldn’t have guessed it, but that makes sense.

  • artemisthemp

    Looking forward to seen Vita Special Edition.
    May wait on EU version, if they release not to far apart.

  • LogicIncarnate

    3DS day 1 for me!

  • Ric Vazquez

    THE MATING SEASON BEGINS!

  • Shane Guidaboni

    So, everyone is all excited about this. Is this game actually any good? It sounds ridiculous and I don’t trust it.

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      Yes yes yes

    • Arcana Wiz

      I heard good things about the battle system…. and importers said it’s fun too.

    • Hyli

      I felt the same way at first! But the art style and character designs are nice(imo), and ive heard nothing but good things about it.

  • Sergio Briceño

    This is actually great news! A game where you get several girls pregnant and then take your children to battle?! You know someone is doing a hell of a good job when you get a game like that localized. Starring the article!

  • SetzerGabbiani

    This does seem more like something NISA would publish.

    This is as niche as it gets…need to watch a few gameplay videos before I decide if I need to pick it up or not.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      NISA has been working on too many games for this time, I can understand it

  • Yaggyu

    Time to save up money

  • Jirin

    This game sounds like something somebody gross from Game of Thrones would do.

  • An Tran

    I wonder if they’ll ship more of the Vita version than the 3DS like in Japan.

  • chroma816

    I’m pleasantly surprised – I didn’t expect that this would make it over at all.

  • icecoffemix

    YISS, tis’ a good time to have Vita.

  • http://denpanosekai.blogspot.com denpanosekai

    I hope the Limited Edition is… “family-friendly”.

  • Rogerrmark

    Atlus US is my eternal Hero.

  • http://amc9988.deviantart.com/ amc99

    Been a while since I last excited about atlus announcement!!! Yeah!

    But which platform should I buy it for… the 3ds or vita (I have both handheld btw)? What’s the difference between the two?

  • http://confitdent.com thedood7

    O_O Whoa. Here I thought it wasn’t gonna make it….

    ATLUS… you RULE! Hehehehehhe…

    So, how am I gonna explain to people who will look at me playing this game what this game is all about? That I’m playing a game about making babies? XD Getting this one when it’s out.

  • Detrimont

    i’m guessing that the first game is going to stay overseas(even though it has better characters(imo))

  • laurenhiya21

    Oh man I never would of expected this :D But do we know if they are localizing it for 3DS, Vita or both? Either way… Can’t wait!~

    • Renaldi Saputra

      I think both

  • Fire.fire.kun

    WHAT A CONCEPT-ION!

  • Hinataharem

    Yup. Hell just froze over.

  • Zak Ledward

    And this is why I fell in love with Atlus. If I was a woman and it was possible to conceive a child with a company, Atlus would be my baby-making partner

  • awat

    f** awesome thank you ATLUS <3

  • Kamakuma

    …. Atlus I bow to you. Hell until this comes out I’ll buy every game I missed so far you win. XD

  • DragKudo

    I’d like to apologize to everyone who said it was C2 i was a fool. I didn’t want to be

    lieve itwas C2

  • Dagobert

    Just to be sure again, this is a standalone sequel right and I do not need to play the first one to understand the sequel right?

    • http://s932.photobucket.com/ usagi_san

      Yes, that is correct.

  • BentoBlame

    Excellent news I’m looking forward to this.

    Wait for me Tori!

  • Oltheros

    Yay typical Atlus dub-only for a game like this.

    Still happy games like this and Senran Kagura are being localized though, despite negative perceptions

  • http://www.midnightgaming.blogspot.com MidnightScott

    I preordered on Amazon, I have no idea what these games are about but I love that Atlus and other companies are localizing Japanese games for 3DS. :) Now if only Japanese companies were making Wii U games that Atlus could localize. Can we have a new Trauma Center game Atlus? :))))

  • Kaetsu

    Atlus has sent out an e-mail for this game and in the e-mail they tease that they will be announcing pre order bonuses soon.

  • Vash bane

    oh my

    -dusts of vita-

    wasn’t expecting this … but I was expecting over 200 comments lol
