posted on by Alex Mateo
The official YouTube channel for PlayStation began streaming on Monday the opening movie for Spike Chunsoft's Conception PLUS: Maidens of the Twelve Stars (Conception: Ore no Kodomo wo Undekure!), an upgraded version of its Conception: Ore no Kodomo wo Undekure! (Conception: Please Give Birth to My Child!) game for PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam.
The game will launch in North America on November 5 and in Europe on November 8. The release will include the original Japanese audio as well as an English dub. Digital pre-orders will open on Monday, and people who pre-order in North America will receive an exclusive theme. The Star God's Blessing Edition will be exclusive to NIS America's online store and bundle an art book, two-disc soundtrack, art cards, and beach towel. The Day 1 Edition bundles a mini astrology-themed calendar.
The story of the game revolves around Itsuki Yūge, a high school student who finds out on the day of his graduation ceremony that his cousin and childhood friend Mahiru is pregnant. Immediately afterward, Itsuki and Mahiru are taken to a magical world called Granvania, which is currently being invaded by monsters. The only people who can fight and exorcise the monsters are the "star children," and the star children can only be produced by the 12 "shrine maidens of the constellations." In order to defeat the monsters and return to his own world, Itsuki must father the star children with the maidens.
The game shipped in Japan in January.
