Conception II introduces Chloe, Tori, and Serina

Plus, three new battle system elements.

Famitsu.com‘s latest Conception II preview introduces three new characters and new battle system elements in Spike Chunsoft’s upcoming handheld RPG.

Characters

Chloe (CV: Satomi Sato)

The older sister of the main character’s classmate Kurotsugu. Though she is a disciple, she also works as an academy teacher and receives excellent grades. Despite being a disciple, she is proud of her idol-like popularity within the academy because she can connect with her classmates.

Tori (CV: Mai Kadowaki)

Because she was raised in a laboratory, she is naive and will believe anything she is told. A young girl brought up in a closed world, she has a strong desire for the “sky.”

Serina (CV: Kaori Mizuhashi)

Despite her short, child-like appearance, she is a senior disciple with great power. Though she has a kind personality, she also has a surprisingly emboldened side. She seems to harbor a strong complex regarding her outward appearance.

New Battle System Elements

Ether Gauge

To fight monsters, you’ll need “Ether Energy,” represented through a gauge in four levels of concentration, from 0 to 3. If your Ether Gauge level is high, your partners’ speed will increase, and your Overchain Gauge can be more easily accumulated.

Seventh Barrette

The protagonist and a heroine can cooperate to perform a powerful attack known as the Seventh Barrette, which differs for each heroine. By adding a Star Child into the mix, the attack can become more effective.

Intercept

When your allies are in a pinch, you can defend them from an enemy attack with Intercept, a new feature triggered at random. The stronger your bonds with the Star Children are, the more likely you’ll trigger an Intercept.
