Atlus announced that Conception II will be getting a demo in North America on both the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita on March 25. Saves from the demo can be brought over to the full game, and players who complete the demo will earn an item set as well, although no details were given.
In addition, Atlus revealed some information about Mecunites in the game. A Mecunite is a combat robot unit that Star Children can form which can help out in tight situations. Below you can read some of Atlus's descriptions of these units and see the released screenshot batch. Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars releases on April 15th in North America.
Let me present a nightmare scenario for you: you've fought your way through all the floors of an intense dungeon and are finally at the boss. All the potions you thought you'd never use are now gone, your mana is empty and the debuffs and status effects keep getting reapplied every turn you try and take them off. Hope seems non-existent...until you remember your army of Star Children can "Mecunite" and form a deadly robot that's an elemental powerhouse!To make these robots in combat costs the hero's Bonding Points, so it should be used sparsely. It combines one whole team of children into a single unit, which takes on the primary element of that team. Meaning you should make sure the boss monster you're up against is weak to that element.Mecunite units have a mega-devastating single target attack, an AOE attack and a heal that heals allies for 100% of health, so it's something that can easily turn the tide of battle. And since it gets its own HP/MP, you can wait until you have a team of Star Children at critical health (but that can be a dangerous line to play...)They come with huge stat boosts too, so not only will you they dish out tons of damage, but their high speed stat gets them a lot of turns. As you might have guessed, it can quickly turn the tide of battle
