Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars is a sequel to Conception: Ore No Kodomo O Undekure, a game exclusive to the Japanese region. For the sequel, it is the first one of the series to ever have localization, and this standalone story will be available for the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS.

In Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars, players take on the role of a young man starting his education to be a Disciple, gifted with the divine powers of the Star Gods. Disciples can combine powers with seven heroines. Together, they'll create ethereal creatures called “Star Children” to aid and fight for them in battles. Indeed, it's baby-making time! It brings a new meaning to the phrase “after-school activities”. These feisty progeny then take their parents' skills and lead the turn-based action against the evil monsters of the Pandora Labyrinths.

Exclusive to both versions is the "“Conception 2 Original Soundtrack CD” - a 10 track CD for insight into the beautiful compositions of Conception!

Street date has been announced: Apr 15th!
