On the PlayStation Blog today, David Alonzo of Idea Factory International announced that Omega Quintet, the idol simulation/RPG will be releasing for the PlayStation 4 on April 28th and in Europe on May 1st physically and May 6th digitally. Omega Quintet puts you in control of an all-female idol group, the Verse Maidens, who are tasked with saving the world from a menace known as “the Blare”, monsters hellbent on wiping out all of humanity. As the people’s last bastion of hope, you must overcome this threat, fighting back with the power of J-Pop music! You’ll play as the girls’ manager, Takt, so it’s up to you to work together in harmony with your girl group in turn-based battles to save the world.

Along with the RPG combat, you can also try out the idol simulation mode, or “PVS mode”. This allows you to put on your own show with the girls, dress them up, use various camera angles, and choose from hundreds of different moves to show off.  Omega Quintet will also support the PlayStation Move controller as well as the PlayStation 4 camera, so you can actually put your image up in the game and upload your saved performance using the PlayStation Share function.

My take: I think the combination of idol simulation and traditional RPG gameplay could be an interesting mix, and I’d like to see just how good Compile Heart and Idea Factory’s first outing on the PlayStation 4 is. The last time I played a music-themed RPG was last fall’s Ar NoSurge, which I ended up loving in spite of its flaws. What do you think? Is Omega Quintet something you’re looking forward to?
