Deepen Your Bonds Through Communication with the Star Maidens

To take on the Stardust Labyrinth and install the Star Seals—that is the role of God’s Gift (the protagonist). To fulfill his role, he needs the help of Star Children with the power to fight. And to produce even stronger Star Children, it is important to proactively communicate and deepen your bonds with the 12 Star Maidens that act as Love Ceremony partners and. The deeper your bonds, the stronger the initial abilities of the Star Children you produce, and you can even raise their maximum level.

In conversing with the Star Maidens, you will have many opportunities to choose a response. The result will have a big effect on their mood and bond, so consider their personality and standpoint before choosing your response. Also, depending on the flow of the conversation, “Touch Communication” where you can touch the Star Maiden’s body will occur.

Eliminate Enemies with Consecutive Attacks

By attacking impurities with consecutive attacks in battle, you can activate a “chain” or “overchain.” A chain significantly delays the turn order of a single target impurity, creating the chance for party members to attack in a row. An overchain is an expanded version of a chain, affecting the turn order of all impurities in battle. Attacks on chain state impurities become combos, and the damage dealt increases for each combo attack. Additionally, you will get an experience points and KP (Kizuna Points) bonus based on the combo number when the battle ends.

Mahiru Konatsuki’s Change

In the PSP version of Conception, Mahiru Konatsuki was very ill-tempered towards Itsuki, and some said that “she didn’t appear too much like a main heroine.” In the PlayStation 4 version, Mahiru’s behavior has been changed to be more friendly and charming.
