Today, via press release, Idea Factory International announced that it would be localizing Idol Sim/RPG Omega Quintet. The game will release on the PlayStation 4 console sometime in the Spring of 2015 in both North America and Europe. There will be digital and physical editions of the game available in both regions as well.

Here is a bit about the story and some key features straight from the press release:

Story
In a world overrun by a mysterious, malevolent darkness, the only hope for humanity rests in the music of singing idols known as “Verse Maidens”. Wielding weapons of sound, they are tasked with fighting back evil and restoring the world, but it won’t be easy! These five plucky girls – with the help of their manager Takt – will have to give the performance of a lifetime to stop this darkness from claiming the last of humanity. Will they be able to band together and blow this evil away, or will they fight only to discover that the darkness has been lurking within them the whole time…?

Key Features
Power of music! Harness the power of song to defeat evil! Every fight is a performance, and you’ve gotta give 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 mustalways 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!

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.




  • I’ve been dying to play this since I first saw it. PS4 is seriously lacking in the RPG department thus far and this is gonna look excellent. So colourful and crazy. I can’t wait. Really looking forward to it.

    OMG! I did not see that announcement coming, not one bit. When I first saw games like this in Japanese on “Live from PlayStation”, I couldn’t believe my eyes at all. Games like Omega Quintet do have an acquired “taste” for those who’re interested. I’m not sure whether or not it will appeal to me but it’s up to me to decide whether I would like to play this type of game or not.
