Conception sequel being localized, coming spring 2014 to NA

The sequel to the Japanese role-playing game Conception is being localized for the West and published by Atlus and Spike Chunsoft as Conception 2: Children of the Seven Stars, the companies announced today.

It will be available in spring 2014 on PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS for $39.99. Atlus teased the announcement last week with a website featuring an ultrasound image of what appeared to be a fetus.

Conception 2 will be the first game in the turn-based RPG series to be translated into English, but according to Atlus and Spike Chunsoft, it tells its own story, so Western audiences will be able to play it without having experienced the first game. The original Conception was released by Spike, before the company merged with Chunsoft to become Spike Chunsoft, in April 2012 on PlayStation Portable in Japan.

You can check out eight screenshots of Conception 2 in the gallery below.

Update: Here are a few story details from Atlus and Spike Chunsoft. In Conception 2, the player takes the role of a Disciple, a young man imbued with the powers of one of the Star Gods. It's up to the Disciples to use their powers to fight the monsters spawning from the Pandora Labyrinth. But Disciples only retain their powers until they become adults (i.e., turn 18), so they have to create new Disciples by combining each other's powers to create Star Children. The Disciples can bond with seven different heroines to make their Star Children stronger.
