March 18, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

Idea Factory International announced today that Omega Quintet will be releasing for the PlayStation 4 on April 28 in North America and April 29 in Europe. Judging by pre-order information, you’ll be able to pick the game up through retail stores or the PlayStation Store in both territories.

A JRPG/idol simulation mash-up, Omega Quintet sees you playing as Takt, who finds himself as the bodyguard and manager of the Verse Maidens: Otoha, your childhood friend, who makes up for her lack of experience with enthusiasm; Kyouka, the wise and responsible one; Kanadeko, who’s driven by impulse; Nene, the shy one with a fierce side in battle; and Aria, who is a vortex of mystery and confusion.

Here’s the description and features for Omega Quintet, which includes the ability to use the PlayStation Camera and PlayStation Move controller:

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 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.
