We've got some brand new Conception II assets for you to peruse today, namely about the main character's best friend, Chlotz! "Boy," you think to yourself, "Chlotz sure is a weird name." And you're right! He has an older sister named Chloe (the redheaded super genius heroine), and she kind of set the trend for the family. More on that below...

The rest of the details about Chlotz and his role in Conception II are below, the assets can be downloaded here and posted immediately!

And in case you missed it:

  • Conception II is launching in stores and digitally in North America on April 15! ($39.99 for PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS!)
  • ATLUS is publishing Conception II in Europe in Q2 as a digital-only title! 
  • All North American pre-orders of Conception II and a limited first-run of physical copies will include the bonus soundtrack CD! 
 
 
 

It's the first day of school, and despite being told that you're a possible savior of mankind, it's still nice to have a buddy in your corner who's always got your back. In Conception II, the blunt but well-meaning Chlotz takes on that role. He admittedly is a bit of a doofus and a perpetual third wheel to God's Gift when it comes to interacting with heroines, but he's also a technical wizard and is constantly training to be a better Disciple. Like Ruby, the lead researcher, often notes: "For being an idiot, he's pretty smart."

 

Chlotz also deals with constantly being compared to his sister, Chloe. Not only is she one of the strongest of the heroines that God's Gift can bring into battle, she's also the smartest. Chlotz's sister has numerous published works and is so smart she's actually been promoted to teacher at the Aterra Academy. But despite living in the shadows of her accomplishments, he has plenty of his own talents and their bond as brother and sister can never be broken.  

A steadfast companion from the very beginning, Chlotz is always willing to sacrifice anything to help his friends, or slap some common sense into people. Even if he's horribly outmatched with no chance of winning, he's always there to step in if it means he can help save a life. The same can be said for when he's outmatched by some of the S-Rank girls. Even if he can't win over the affections of one on his own, he's always ready to hand out relationship insight to God's Gift. Most of it is usually good, too!  

So in a nutshell, the stranger you meet on the way to your first day of school rapidly becomes your best friend, and despite his general doofusness, lack of tact, and clownism, he winds up being one of the strongest supporting characters in all of Conception II. ...Sound familiar?
