Conception II Has Archers, Divas And Merchants

By Ishaan . February 21, 2014 . 11:29am

Atlus USA have shared details on more of the classes that you’ll have access to in Conception II, in the form of your Star Children. In case you missed the first lot of classes, you can catch up with them here. There are 30 classes in total.



This early-to-mid game unit excels at hitting weak points with bows and tricky movement. Archers are good attackers that can add effects to their attacks, be it debuffs, status conditions, etc.



This master of weaponry can wear down opponents with repeated smashing. Can break enemies’ defense, and shatter enemy power. They’re a fairly powerful unit to acquire early game, but drop off in mid-to-late game.



With dapper hats and tuxedo outfits, Bondsmen are late-game units that require maxing out your relationship bond with their mother. They wield lances and unlike most other units, they use Bond Points for their magic attacks and heals instead of mana.



This pop idol-like musician is a stronger version of the minstrel. This support unit requires an extremely rare item to create. But in addition to buffing allies and debuffing enemies, she can also revive her teammates.


Gun Saint

Take a paladin, give him a gun, and you get a Gun Saint. This late-game unit requires a special rare drop, but with gold armor and a powerful weapon, the GS can penetrate any armor.



Strong attacking class that excels at building Chain gauge quickly to help immobilize units. Deals an incredible amount of damage in the right team composition, and are available mid game.



This early game unit is great for wheeling and dealing, as well as axing monsters right in their face. In addition to strong attacks, Merchants also have the ability to summon a shop to buy or sell items, in case you find yourself mid-dungeon without enough health or mana potions.



Rangers are quick to adapt to a multitude of roles within a party. They have effective heals, and debilitating debuff attacks. Their defense also allows them to be solid protectors. Rangers are a good mid-game choice for all but the most specialized parties.


Conception II will be available on Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita on April 15th in North America and sometime during Q2 in Europe.

    And here i am, broke.

  • Noor Mahmoud

    I am wondering what the potential differences between the 3DS and Vita versions will be.

  • DanijoEX ♬ the Cosmic Owl

    I’m leaning on the Vita version but will consider the 3DS version as back-up if I’m unable to get the latter.

    • TheExile285

      why would you not be able to get the Vita version?

    • God

      I agree with TheExile why wouldn’t you? It’s region free…

  • Warren

    Thats alot of children what happen to using birth control? Or will that make some other type of child? Don’t get me wrong I still want them all.

    • Arcana Drill

      they arent conceived by normal means, just by infusing energy in golems.

      • God

        Thanks, anti-joke chicken!

        • TheExile285


        • Arcana Drill

          it was nothing god

  • TheExile285

    I really like the designs for Blacksmith, Gun Saint & Lancer. The artwork in general is nice.

    • Kaetsu

      Gunsaint and Lancer are my favourite :)

    • TheGioG

      Here I though I was gonna stick to fathering the Swordis class to uphold my Hylian family name. Those gorgeous Lancers though…

  • Firion Hope

    So many classes Gunsaint and bondsman sounds great.

    I really want this game!

  • Serge

    I like how this became a discussion about Vita Vs 3DS… Weirdly enough, almost all articles about 3DS have at least one discussion about Vita Vs 3DS.

    *Dark-skinned children.*
    NTR doujins WHEN?!

    • TheExile285

      This comment…. rotfl

    • Kango234

      Th-that actually does raise some questions…

    • nick_54g

      ( ._.)

  • $51888021

    Dangit, this is gonna end up just like Disgaea. I’m just gonna go for all the cutest-looking units and put strategic party-planning in the background.

    Darn these games and their great artwork…!

    • ZnTxn

      Don’t worry that much. Most of the strategy involved in this game is related to your position on the battlefield and how to move, sure, there’s your typical “**** that boss” fight but it’s still beatable with pretty much any class combination.

  • TheGioG

    Why can’t I hold all these illegitimate childs?!
    Hehe… just kidding Serina baby. Sassy as you are, you’re my one and only.

  • NeptuniasBeard

    This is starting to sound like a very sexy Bravely Default

    • Kango234

      That should be the tag line.

  • Oh man… This and Bravely Default will now own my life D:

  • Gun Saint! Diva! Daddy’s a-coming!

  • Makar85

    can someone tell me what differences there will be between the 3ds and vita versions?

    • sakusakusakura_nyo

      I want to know too before I preorder one.

    • kthanxyousuck

      Gameplay wise there is no difference.

      I heard there’s minor technical difference. Obviously vita graphics and I think the load times were a little better on Vita as well. 3DS uses 3D (if you like that)

      The bottom screen of the 3DS really just acts as a constant open menu and doesn’t do too much more. For example, the little part that shows you whose turn is coming up next is on the bottom screen and the battling is on the top screen instead of sharing the screen like on the vita version.

      • Makar85

        Thx! that was really informative!

    • Lalum

      Vita version is better looking.

  • Pdugna

    Finally preordered this today and cannot wait, getting a PS4 and some games for my Vita and PS4 this summer is gunna be great.

  • SlickRoach

    I want nendoroids…for ALL of them. That’s just too much kawaii to not merchandise.

  • The Gun Saint is adorable <3

  • kthanxyousuck

    Their outfits are too damn adorable!

  • natchu96

    Why did they have to name the kid Lancer?!?

    People named Lancer will always die in horribly unfair and cruel ways. That is their fate. Being Lancer is suffering.

  • TerrenceEncore Jones

    I can’t wait to see how the “conception” aspect of the game is explained.

  • Eric Harris

    I know it’s hard to compare via internet videos but have there been any comparison videos between 3DS and Vita? Will the 3DS scale back a bit or is it pretty much only a resolution and screen (OLED) difference?

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Lol looks like it has Super training form X/Y XD the outfits are so cute! I can’t want to play this

  • iamakii

    My body is ready! (to make babies)

  • GoombaJMR

    Merchant actually looks like a very interesting class :o
