Spike Chunsoft, whom you may know for games such as 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, Virtue’s Last Reward, or games in the Mystery Dungeon series, may be trying to bring another one of their games outside of Japan. Ever since 2010, the company has been sending out press releases in English for most of their games, even those that have not ended up being released outside of Japan. Examples of this include a game called  Danganronpa which was a visual novel style adventure game, along with Conception: Please Have My Babies(pictured), a very odd dungeon-crawler RPG where you have to meet “Star Maidens” and conceive children. These children, called “Star Children,” will assist you in combat. Both of these games had English press releases for Japan. However, neither of them have been released outside of Japan so far.

Speaking of Conception, the company just sent out a press release in English for the upcoming sequel: Conception 2. The press release stated that the game is set to be released during the summer for the PlayStation Vita and the Nintendo 3DS, however, it also notes that “The retail price is TBD and North American and/or European releases of the game are also TBD.”

This probably means that the company is willing to bring their titles over if another company can publish it. Aksys Games have published both games in the Zero Escape  series, while Nintendo and Sega publish the Mystery Dungeon/Shiren games.

If Conception 2 gets confirmed for a Western release, which company do you think will handle the localization? Would you be interested in playing it?

  • I want the conception rpg series

  • I’d so want to play Conception 2!
    I think it could be handled by Aksys/XSEED in America and Rising Star Games in Europe.

  • sounds interesting

  • MCL

    I don’t care who publishes it. So long as I can buy it, I’ll be all over it.

  • Sounds interesting and unique.

  • If I had the money I would localize all of these titles.

  • wiiarebrothers

    I’d love Spike Chunsoft to make an Homeland-like game on Wii U!

  • Tails the Foxhound

    Ever since I read about it on Siliconera, I’ve been interested in playing that Conception game. It sounds ridiculous, lol.

  • This is relevant to my interests.

  • The Conception games sound really interesting (and bizarre). I’d love having the chance to play one of them.

  • I’d be all for Spike bringing the Kenka Bancho series to the 3DS and localizing it. Any Wii U support’d be great too, as would a 3DS port and localization of Jawa: Mammoth to Himitsu no Ishi from the Wii, since that sadly missed the west this past generation and looked impressive.

    What I WOULD like to see, seeing as they have re-released Fire Pro Wrestling Returns on the PS3, is the chance to play it on the xbox 360…. the one they released where you use your avatar is ok, but I grew up playing the originals on the SNES (thanks to my trusty converter!) and would love to play it again!
