Spike Chunsoft released a new trailer for Conception Plus, the PS4 remake of Conception, an RPG that released for PSP in 2012. The trailer introduces the main characters, including protagonist Itsuki and the twelves Star Maidens he must make Star Children with, to save the world he was summoned to. The game’s story, the Star Maidens and their voices actresses were previously detailed here.
New details about the game were revealed too. As you progress in dungeons, you’ll need stronger and stronger Star Children. To do so, you’ll need to spend time with the Star Maidens and further your bond with them. That way, the next Star Children will be born with higher base stats and a higher level limit.
You’ll often be prompted for answers when speaking with the Star Maidens, and some answers will further your bond quicker. At some points, you’ll also be able to do “Touch Communication”.
The battle’s chain system was also explained. Chains activate when you attack the same monster successively in battle. Their turn gets delayed, allowing Itsuki and the Star Children to keep attacking them without interruption. As you keep doing Chains, a gauge allowing you to do an Over Chain fills. Over Chain will delay not one but all monsters’ turns, letting you do many combos. At the end of the battle, you’ll also get bonus experience and Kizuna Points according to the number of combos you did. You can read more about the battle system here.
Spike Chunsoft also pointed out how Mahiru’s design is quite different compared the original version of the game for PSP. In Conception Plus, her personality is different as well, she’s much friendlier to Itsuki and less of a tsundere. The gallery below has a comparison between the PSP Mahiru and the PS4 Mahiru.
Conception Plus was announced back in September, and will release for PS4 on January 31 in Japan. The game has multiple shop specific pre-order bonuses. There’s also an anime adaptation airing nowadays.
