Over My Dead Body 2 Shows How You’ll Be Expanding Your Family Tree

By Sato . March 7, 2014 . 4:32pm

In Over My Dead Body 2, you’ll be playing as a family with a cursed bloodline that allows them to only live with a lifespan of about two years, due to a curse by the ventriloquist villain Abeno Seimei. In order to keep your family tree growing, you’ll need to pass your offspring through various gods and deities.


Another effect from the curse makes it so that the cursed bloodline can no longer mate with normal people. However, they can bear offspring through other cursed families, or through a ritual with gods.


In order to do so, you’ll need “Dedication Points” to offer to the gods, which can be acquired through winning battles.


As seen in the above images, the one on the left indicates how many Dedication Points you’ll be needing to pass an offspring through those gods in particular. The more powerful the gods are, the stronger your kids will be. However, they’ll also require more points.


From there, the child will inherit the gods’ powers, which are divided into different attributes. They’ll also inherit physical traits from the gods, such as face and body types.



The graphs indicate ability parameters for heart, skills, and body. They’ll all have elemental attributes from fire, water, wind, and earth.


Horns and other distinct features will also be passed on from the gods, so you might want to think about appearances if you’re picky about those kind of things, to go with the abilities.


Here’s a look at four new gods who’ll be candidates for the inheritance ritual:

Over My Dead Body 2 is slated for release this summer for PlayStation Vita in Japan.

    Sounds good

  • harmonyworld

    shark man….or veggie boy….hmmmm
    which should I choose? hmmm

    • Enma_Kozato

      Here, here! I would like to know the intimate workings of shark men and plant boys before I make a decision.

  • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

    Why is no one excite?

    • harmonyworld

      hmm not a lot of hype it seems~
      Someone get this hype train rollin’!

    • Lalum

      Probably no localization.

      • MaximDualBlade

        It will. Yoshida said he would be surprised if the game wasn’t localized

        • Lalum

          Talk is cheap. Also it comes off to me that he’d be sad if we didn’t get it, not surprised.

          • xavier axol

            if any one have a saying in that matter is him. remember that he’s the president of world wide studios and that besides andy house, he alone have the final word.

          • MaximDualBlade

            If you are dead set on no localization, I don’t see this discussion progressing

          • Lalum

            Dead set, not really. Just really doubtful.

          • MaximDualBlade

            We are getting games like Jojo all star battle, Akiba’s Trip 2 and even Monster Monpiece.

            This game looks beautiful and I will lose hope until a year after it’s japanese release.

          • ishyg

            And a month after, voila!
            Sometimes I think we can trust yosp’s words.

    • Arcana Drill

      Localization doubts? the first never made to the west, but this is a first party.. so 50/50 chances i guess?

      • katamari damacy

        If Conception 2 somehow made it despite being far more overt in what was happening (it’s in the title), this has at least some likelihood of making it.

        • Arcana Drill

          Sadly Conception being localized doesnt affect the chances at all, this is a first party game so is Sony that decides if its localized or not, and Sony isnt Atlus…..

    • katamari damacy

      I am very excite. sounds like Fire Emblem Awakening’s children system, which was awesome.

    • MaximDualBlade

      I am really excited!

      Does this mean we can mate with other players characters? It says we can reproduce with other cursed families, so that’s why I think that

  • Can’t wait for localization!

  • ArmoredBoar

    oh hey it’s a snorunt

  • s07195

    I’m hyped for this game, but I still don’t have a Vita to actually play it on…

  • This game keeps getting crazier… Love it though! Will be picking this up Day One if I can. (Assuming it’s localized, of course. But I feel confident about this one???)

  • tubers

    Digging the watercolor look ;)

  • MaximDualBlade

    The art is so beautiful to me. does anyone know how it’s called the type of art in this game?

    • harmonyworld

      It like the Okami ukiyo-e type cell shading

  • The transition from artwork to in-game graphics has to be one of the best I’ve seen in a while. Really need this game in the west.

    Kukurihime, please have my babies!

    Didn’t know Kisame had a relative in this game?

  • The artwork is a feast for my eyeballs! Man I want to play this!

  • Arcana Drill

    I need this… controlling my family genetics.. so interesting, so many possibilities….

  • Reki Honoo

    This seems really fun to play. Hopefully it makes it over to the west.

  • iheartyou

    I lovedd the first game, and now I’m dying for this to get localized. C’mon Sony, don’t screw us over!!!

  • Marco Tinè

    Sony should actually consider bringing this game over, as it looks very peculiar and well made. The Vita could really use something so unique…

  • chroma816

    So, is this like Conception 2 + old-world Japanese aesthetics?

    I hope it gets brought over.

  • CDM

    I need this game in my life.

  • Ritsuioko23

    There needs to be a localization pls, this game looks amazing
