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.
