Omega Quintet, a RPG where a group of idols have to save the world, is Compile Heart’s first PlayStation 4 game. It was slated for release on September 18 and bumped back a bit to October 2. Compile Heart didn’t give specifics just saying various reasons caused the delay.
How does being an idol factor into battles? This video gives us a look at fights and the Voltage Gauge which fills up when Takuto, the protagonist and idol manager, protects the idols or when you attack enemies. When the Voltage Gauge rises you can activate Live Mode, which changes the background music and gives the idols bonuses. It looks like adjusting the turn order is key in Omega Quintet since you can do Harmonics, team attacks with multiple idols, if characters act one after another. That’s where you come in as Takuto and manage moves to get the idols in place.
Omega Quintet has only been announced for Japan at this point.
