Today Spike Chunsoft offered an update about the PC version of its JRPG Conception Plus: Maidens of the Twelve Stars.
While they announced a few days ago that the PS4 version would be censored, the PC version won’t be altered at all and will remain the same as the original Japanese release.
In case you missed it, the PS4 will be altered in the following way.
“During the Classmating rituals, the Star Maidens’ 3D models will appear as blue and purple (rather than flesh-colored) and will not have detailed facial features. The animation itself is identical.
This change does not affect gameplay and no other content has been modified.”
While it is a pity that the PS4 version is censored, at least those who want to play the game in its original form have a way to.
Conception Plus: Maidens of the Twelve Stars is a PS4 remake of Conception: Ore no Kodomo o Undekure!, which was launched in 2012 for PSP. While the original game was never released in the west, its 2013 sequel Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars did come to North America and Europe.
The western localization has been announced a few days ago at Anime Expo, and it’s coming on November 5, 2019.
It’s worth mentioning that the Japanese version itself had a feature removed from the PSP original due to “various circumstances.” While the specific reason has never been officially revealed, I’m positive many have taken a wild guess already.
