Idol JRPG Omega Quintet rocks North America in April

Idol games have started to slowly make their over to the West thanks to the huge popularity of Hatsune Miku. While it will still be a long while till games like IdoM@ster gain acceptance, as the saying goes “We all got to start somewhere”. And that somewhere for idol games might be Omega Quintet for the PS4.



Developed by Complie Heart, onr of the developers of the Hyperdimention Neptunia franchise, Idea Factory International brings to the West Omega Quintet. Omega Quintet is a JRPG/idol sim of sorts. On the JRPG side you are Takt, a manager to a group of idols known as Verse Maidens. One day an evil force overruns the world plunging it into darkness and despair. It is you to you and the Verse Maidens to fight back against evil and restore the world as it was. But don’t these idols fool you, they’re not just cute girls singing, they can bring the pain when they need to, as seen in this battle trailer for the game:



The game will have the following key features:

  • Power of music!Harness the power of song to defeat evil! Every fight is a performance, and you’ve gottagive the audience what they want! By entering “Concert Mode” you’ll get boosts from your music, as well as be able to fill up your Voltage Gauge faster to perform special skills.
  • Break a…garter?It may be the end of the world, but you’ve also got idols on your hand and they must always be ready to perform! You’ll be able to customize their outfits, accessories, hair, and more! Be careful, though, because sustaining hits from the enemies can cause a “Costume Break”, which will compromise their outfits and leave them vulnerable to more damage!
  • Lethal harmonies!An idol group combines their talents to create beautiful harmonies, and with the “Harmonics” system, you can sing your enemies right into their graves! Create deadly super chains of attacks, utilizing each idol’s skill in the right order to keep the pain coming –it’ll be music to your ears!
  • Dance or die!Create performances for your idols and share them with the PlayStation®4 Share function! You can build each routine, move by move, and even use the PlayStation®4 Camera to project yourself into the performance, as well as the Move controller to add special effects! The better your shows, the more moves you’ll be able to pass onto your idols!


Omega Quintet will be shaking the roof down on April 28, 2015 in North America and May 1, 2015 in Europe.
