The problem with importing some popular Japanese titles to the West is that outsiders simply don’t get their unique sensibility. Beyond it being a simple case of lost in translation, the problem is lack of context. This applies to the JRPG Conception II, which comes to these shores almost a year after its Japanese release and without the benefit of its predecessor Conception, which wasn’t released in Europe. If you overlook this, what you have is an RPG that ticks all the boxes. Turn-based battle – check; manga-style adolescent characters – check; a weird quasi-sexual gameplay dynamic – check; and last but by no means least, demons – check. As hinted at in its title, Conception II sees players control a student who has a unique magical ability: the power to create star children by ‘classmating’ with his fellow pupils. That’s convenient considering the high school these sorcerers attend also doubles as a training ground for demon hunters and the one critical weakness of these monsters is – you guessed it – star children.
