The lights are on
Atlus USA is working on bringing an RPG called Conception II to North American shores. The title casts the player as the “God’s Gift.” By undergoing the “classmating” ritual with female classmates, the player will create Star Children, which are used to battle monsters in the game’s labyrinth.
Additionally, strengthening bonds with the female partners enhances their abilities in dungeons. The title sounds like a cross between Persona’s social links and Pokemon’s minion-based combat (if you actually made the pocket monsters yourself instead of capturing them).
Conception II is coming in Spring 2014, and it will be getting a first-run special edition. This version comes with a special box and 10-track audio CD. Both the 3DS and Vita versions will retail for $39.99.

You think this sounds bad? You should play Pokemon. Breeding in Pokemon all takes place at a daycare center and the goal of breeding is to make perfect Pokemon and discarding the rest; or in other words, eugenics. That sounds awfully familiar to a certain group of people in WW2 that spoke German... Oh and Ditto is the class whore who does it with anyone.
So what I found out by reading these comments is that western gamers think relationships are gross and offensive.
Honestly I don't see how a game about fostering relationships and then using magic to create monsters together is anymore offensive than a particularly po***r series about children who capture wild animals and then force them to fight each other for money.
I guess gamers never stopped being afraid of cooties.
This sounds like a very awesome idea.
You mean pregnant female partners or born from something like "Social Links" from Persona series.
So they made a dating sim with a combat rpg mechanic and are selling it state side.
i remember reading about this before pretty funny lol
Well...now I feel strangely compelled to play this, lol
Couldn't stop laughing after reading the article. I applaud the devs for making a realistic concept in a very nonsensical fashion. If I got the story right, you go banging highschool girls and then toss the ***s into the cold harsh world.
Is... playboy associated with this game or something?
The idea of a cross between Persona's social links and Pokemon's battles is like some sort of beautiful golden dream game but...does it have to come from having sex with your classmates?
Sounds so weird I might actually buy it.
I'm going to get this game just to see how strange it is.
