Japanese gaming mag Famitsu revealed today on it's website a new title from developer Spike, known for the Dragonball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi series, that centers around, of all things, paternity.
No it's not the Fatherly alternative to Babysitting Mama
regrettably, rather it's a new RPG titled Conception: Ore no Kodomo wo Undekure! (Conception: Please Give Birth to My Child!)
The title centers around a young man named Itsuki. On the day of his graduation he finds out that his cousin/childhood friend Mahiru is pregnant and before hilarity can ensue the two are whisked away to another world known as Granbaria. The magical land is under attack by monsters, and the only creatures capable of defeating them are known as 'Star Children.' It just so happens that the only way to create a Star Child is to go and impregnate the 12 legendary 'Shrine Maidens of the Constellations' and, of course, Itsuki is the only man for the job.
It's dating-sim meets JRPG meets Pokemon meets Big Love, with gameplay switching between interaction with the 12 maidens and battling alongside your collected offspring. The fruits of Itsuki's loins form your battle party and in order to make the little brats stronger you need to maintain positive relationships with their respective mothers.
You can't make this stuff up.
The 'fantasy love' RPG will be released on both the PSP and as a download the Playstation Network, but no release date has been specified just yet.
You can get more info, albeit in Japanese, and images at the official Famitsu website.
