It’s not easy being God’s Gift. The main character of Conception II, the roleplaying game from ATLUS and developed by Spike Chunsoft has his work cut out for him. Between having to manage personal relationships with seven heroines, saving the world by fighting monsters, and figuring out his role with the overseeing AngelMarker Industries, managing the hero’s time is a daunting task. Conception II will be available in Q2 for Nintendo 3DS™ and PlayStation®Vita as a digital-only title in Europe. Keep up with official news here: In Conception II players are “God’s Gift” – a human teenager bestowed with the blessings of the Star God with power levels that are off the charts. His Ether is the only thing in the world that allows him and his fellow classmates to enter and fight the evil contained within Dusk Circles – monster-filled labyrinths that threaten human existence. To aid him in labyrinths, his power allows him to create Star Children. But only by maintaining relationships with the game’s heroines will players be able to create an army of better, stronger, faster Star Children with suitable elemental powers. The complex elements of managing relationships are only matched by the intricate combat systems, where positioning, attack chains, and combos are vital for survival.The European version of Conception II will only be available digitally via the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Network.

    Going to be honest, I’m not sure if I’m more excited by the fact that we’re getting the game, or by the fact that Atlus are publishing it themselves.

    Hopefully this is a trend that continues, so we get more Atlus games closer to the North American release. Still waiting for SMTIV and EO Untold!

    • ~ハセヲさん~

      I’d have preferred them to leave it to other European publishers, honestly. I’m not a fan of digital-only releases, especially if their main region does have a physical one. If Atlus can’t offer the bare minimum that other publishers do (including NISA, that it’s smaller and always distributes physical copies of their games in Europe) then it’s better they don’t even try. I don’t mind waiting some time, as long as I know I can buy it physically from my country.

    • Charlotte Buckingham

      I completely disagree with you there. I’d rather get it sooner, and I want this trend to continue so we can consistently get Atlus titles sooner. I have no problems with a digital-only release; I actually want to move to having my entire game library (and other things) in digital form. So I am absolutely fine with this.

    • ~ハセヲさん~

      Different strokes for different folks, I’d say.
      I’m kind of a fetishist for physical copies XD That’s why most digital-only releases tend to demolish my enthusiasm for a game. Especially those I was really looking forward to like this one. Keep in mind that I was really confident of the fact that NISA was going to publish it in Europe, like they did for most Atlus games last year. That’s another reason why I’m so disappointed right now.

    • Charlotte Buckingham

      Different strokes indeed! My reasoning largely has to do with the fact that I’m currently studying Conservation Biology; I want to consume as little as possible so as much is possible is left untouched.

      I still feel there are few issues that need to be addressed before I’m totally comfortable making the leap to total digital (largely to do with Nintendo; they just tied multiple eShop accounts to on Miiverse account, but I’m not sure if this is as good Sony’s system yet), but I definitely want to start.
