Omega Quintet Coming To The West Spring 2015

By Ishaan . November 18, 2014 . 6:22pm

Idea Factory are bringing Compile Heart’s Omega Quintet to the West sometime in Spring 2015, the publisher announced this evening. The PlayStation 4 game will be available both at retail and as a download title.


Omega Quintet is a combination of RPG and idol simulation, and incorporates music into its battle system, providing stat boosts and other bonuses during battle. The player will take on the role of a manager and will be able to build relationships with each member of the group. Here’s a brief story summary:


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.


Idea Factory say they will release Omega Quintet with both English and Japanese voice-overs. Japanese screenshots for the game can be found below.

    For the love of all that is holy god please let the release date be May 5th my life would be complete.

  • animedemon

    omg i been wanting this game so much thank you IF

  • Christopher C

    Takuto -> Takt… PLEASE TELL ME THAT’S A TYPO

    • darke

      As far as random name changes go, that’s not too bad. But seriously, why do they even bother? It’s not as if people who buy these games care that the names are Japanese, so random mangling just seems totally pointless.

  • dispedia


  • klkAlexar

    Oh come on IFI! Release some of your otome games!

    Anyway, I forgot about this game. It didn’t do so well in Japan, right? I wonder if it will do better here.

    • I need more otome games from IF. ;u;

      • klkAlexar

        I keep expecting them to announce Amnesia and Hakuoki SSL since they’re both in IFI’s games list, but no such luck.

  • JeySigma

    dammit i was hoping this was on the Vita.. or at least on the PS3.
    Vita needs all the exclusivity it can get.

    Not to mention this doesnt even look like PS4 quality anyway

    • Theob Vious Choice

      So the Vita should have more JRPGs you’re saying, yeah, I agree with that despite the fact that it has plenty already.
      Still, the PS4 has zero in the west until this comes out, so yeah, this is a well placed title.

      • JeySigma

        yes, you’re also right actually. PS4 is still severely lacking in J-RPG’s now that you mention it

    • Satoshi Ookami

      Dude, Vita has so many JRPGs that it’s impossible to buy/play them all =D
      PS4 needs a share too =D

  • Spirit Macardi

    After Fairy Fencer F’s magnificent manservice, I was hoping for more along the lines of that. But nope, instead of beefcake it’s just more cheesecake -_-;

    • Hinataharem

      one day we will get more beefcake

      • Derek

        Not a chance in hell given how SEGA doesn’t even bother to give us localized games anymore.

        • Guest

          What the heck does that even have to do with what they were talking about? Take your Sega hate somewhere esle.

      • Terpsichore


    • DyLaN

      ……There were beefcakes in FFF? Since when does skinny bishounens = beefcakes 8P (Though there Bahus, but he not in any fanservice scenes)

  • Theob Vious Choice

    This is the best CH game since Neptune V, better than Mugen Souls and Z, better than Fairy Fencer F, next to the Neptune series, this is by far the best thing to come out of CH. After Fairy Fencer I sort of became apprehensive about the Galapagos RPG line, a lot of people love it, I personally found it to be boring and irritating.
    But yeah. the west is finally getting a JRPG for PS4.

  • Theob Vious Choice

    Also, I don’t know why people would prefer this on another system. That’s basically the equivalent of saying “There shouldn’t be JRPGs on PS4.” which is odd.
    The PS4 has zero JRPGs in the west, and only one in Japan. The only one released in Japan is this one, the next one to be released stateside is also this one. The next JRPG to be released in Japan is the Neptune game, after that you’ll wait til’ Q4 2015 to get anything new JRPG wise.

    I own a PS4, and I want more JRPGs for it.

    • DesmaX

      Eh, it’s just port begging

      • Theob Vious Choice

        It’d be nice if they simply said “I want this on Vita or PS3” instead of saying it shouldn’t be on the PS4 a console starving for JRPGs.
        Also, once they play it they will understand why it’s not for PS4 or Vita.

    • subsamuel01

      It’s time for people to start moving on to the PS4, its almost been a full year since the console has been out and its sales are just skyrocketing. Soon developers will just skip the PS3 completely its almost inevitable. The only thing I play on my PS3 are JRPG so I’m happy their finally moving on to the PS4.

      • DesmaX

        Man, did you see the PS3 version of Shadow of Mordor?

        It’s definitely proof that it’s time to move to current gen

      • Suicunesol

        The only country in which PS4 sales are ‘skyrocketing’ is the US (the West in general).

        Japan. No way.

    • Well, when it looks like an early PS3 game…. people should expect it on the PS3. Heck, early gen titles like Eternal Sonata and Tales of Vesperia look better than this in many, many, many areas.

      Of course PS4 should have JRPGs. But you’d like to think that they’d be “next gen” in most ways. Not only visually, but with features like seamless worlds versus chunking up the game world into areas broken up by gating and load times (something that pisses me off in PS3 JRPGs) and more populated worlds with more dynamic NPCs.

      When you look around and see more exciting, dynamic next gen JRPGs coming out like Xenoblade X, Final Fantasy XV/Type-0 and Dragon Quest Heroes (if FF XV counts as an RPG with Nomura’s signature “I really just want a stylish, dumb action game” gameplay, than Omega Force’s DQ Heroes should count as an action-RPG too… especially since it seems to be following up on a lot of the ideas present in their actual action-RPG, Trinity), one’s expectations for PS4 should be higher than what this can deliver. Don’t just take it ‘cuz it’s the first thing dangled in front of you. The “Quest 64” strategy shouldn’t be successful in 2014. :)

      Oh and also, the PS4 has Final Fantasy XIV Realm Reborn son. Don’t discount it just ‘cuz it’s an MMO. It’s a beast.

      • Theob Vious Choice

        Alright, here is the definitive answer to the “It looks like an early PS3 game” argument.that disproves nothing of what I said. Compile Heart have NEVER been up to par with other companies when it comes to graphics, they’ve never tried. They still aren’t trying very hard, but they caught up to Tales games in terms of zone size finally and fixed the framerate issues. I’d know, I own the game. It’s at the point where when I think I’ve explored an entire zone, I unlock another entire area, it’s great.

        I think you’re sort of fighting back at me with unrelated points to derail my argument. My argument was mainly against the people who say this game should be on PS3 because the PS3 can handle it, despite the fact that it’s just another Compile Heart game. They’re fun and they have their niche, and the main point I am trying to make is that it’s good that the PS4 has at least one JRPG at this point, and it’s stupid to suggest that it shouldn’t.

        Beyond that, you named off a bunch of titles that are coming out in late 2015/2016, which yeah, they look great, but that’s just making another argument for the sake of an argument. I get that you’re hyped for PS4 JRPGs and I get that there are plenty of them confirmed from triple A groups, and that’s awesome. The only part of what I was saying that had anything to do with that was the fact that Omega Quintet is the only JRPG for PS4 right now.

        My expectations for the PS4 ARE NOT Omega Quintet-tier, I am a fan of Compile Heart’s games, I own every single one of them and enjoy most of them quite a lot. I play all sorts of games, CH is just a niche studio I really like.

        The last point you made was about a game that you have to pay $15 a month to subscribe for, that I’ve played and enjoyed. It’s not a JRPG though, it’s an MMORPG from Japan, there is a distinct difference and that was just a name drop.

        Anyway, my main point is that Omega Quintet being on PS4 is a good thing. Enough said, I really don’t feel like having a deep conversation about JRPGs right now.

      • Tarkovsky

        The one thing people need to remember is that budget=quality of graphics and expansiveness of games. Companies like Compile Heart, Gust, NIS, Falcom, D3 and many other smaller companies have very little resources to work with. Does that mean they should never release games on the PS4 and stick with PS3 for the rest of their lives? I think it’s rather silly for people to think that. Sooner or later, support for the PS3 is going to stop.

    • Harry Potter

      what about Persona 5 i want more jrpgs on my Ps4

      • Theob Vious Choice

        Yeah, Persona 5 doesn’t even have a set release date, it comes out “some time in 2015” at this point. I’ll assume Q2 the earliest, and even considering all of the reveals, it’s not really a lot. We still don’t have any word on a PS4 JRPG from several makers.

        But yeah, Persona 5 does look quite good all things considered, I’m looking forward to it myself.

    • Tarkovsky

      “The only one released in Japan is this one, the next one to be released stateside is also this one.”

      I wouldn’t exactly say that. Yakuza games are very much RPGs even though they don’t look like it. Action RPG but still an RPG and I would consider Yakuza Isshin and Zero as JRPGs as I would the Ys and Drakengard series. People may disagree with me but that’s how I see it personally. All I can say to convince people is imagine a Yakuza game set in a fantasy setting with all it’s mechanics intact.

      “The next JRPG to be released in Japan is the Neptune game, after that you’ll wait til’ Q4 2015 to get anything new JRPG wise.”

      There’s Disgaea 5 too. :)

      • Theob Vious Choice

        The definition of RPG has become extremely vague I’ve noticed. I dunno, I guess when Final Fantasy XV more or less has become a open world roaming action game the genre really has a confusing definition. So by the logic of Final Fantasy XV being a JRPG, I can easily see Yakuza also being a JRPG.
        It’s tough commenting about JRPGs because I have to be ultra-specific about literally everything or I’ll end up replying to tons of different people, lol. I mean, back in the early 00’s, Tales and Star Ocean were considered Action RPGs, because their combat system was action based rather than turn-based. Nowadays, you can easily say Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was a JRPG, when to me, it was as much of an RPG as Super Mario 64 short of having an actual inventory.

        Disgaea 5, yeah; I can agree with that, I personally can’t get into Disgaea, I like the characters and the concepts, but I hate strategy RPGs. It might be because I started the series by playing the original, which to me, was completely broken. Vague stat grinding mages and random exponential boosts in difficulty from one zone to the next is irritating, it’s irritatingly grindy. I don’t know if they fixed that in the later games, but I don’t feel like dropping dollars to check unfortunately.

    • dispedia

      yes man yes i hear you that’s exactly my thoughts…. I wish we can just move on completely to PS4 now

  • Tijani Palmer

    Japan: Making the strangest combinations since Sexy Parodius.

    Idol Simulation and RPG mixed together…really?

    Just gonna wait for the New 3DS with Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Final Fantasy Explorers(if localized), and One Piece: Super Grand Battle X. It’s the same crap Compile Heart pulls out every year besides the forever milked Hyperdimension Neptunia series

    • Slayven19

      Why would you even mention those 3ds games? This game is on ps4 and has nothing to do with anything you just named.

      • Harry Potter

        because he only got a 3ds

        • Tijani Palmer

          …I also have a PS4, but I just feel like they’re localizing the wrong things.

          • Harry Potter

            this is simple….. don’t buy it! wait for another game of you’re choice..and i won’t buy this game too because games like this is more suitable for vita all i want on my ps4 is Persona 5 and GE2 that’s all i want for now

          • Tijani Palmer

            Yeah, you have a point. Can’t wait for Persona 5 though; it is the only reason I want a PS4 right now. Persona Q was canon right; I hope we will get to see Rei and Zen or even Sho somehow.

          • Harry Potter

            i think they will not because there will be no returning characters on Persona 5 seriously man there’s no comeback characters on main persona series but the universe is the same but in spin-offs yes

    • Harry Potter

      Seriously Neptunia game is like Persona series they’re all good!

      • Rentekabond

        Let’s not get crazy, Hyperdimension isn’t even in Persona’s shadow, let alone its league.

        • Harry Potter

          i know man i’m saying is Neptunia games are Majestic like Persona …Persona RULEZZ!!

        • Harry Potter

          i compare them because they both milking each other

        • ivanchu77

          Well, neptunia is at least fun to play, while persona is boring and slow as hell during normal gameplay and is only saved by it’s story and characters

          Personally i enjoy neptunia much more

      • Derek

        It’s good if you enjoy watching the anime fandom be labeled even creepier and big companies sees us as a lost cause

        • Shippoyasha

          That was that way for decades on end. It’s really nothing new. And these games are pretty niche anyway. People making broad assumptions about anime culture and fandom likely don’t have the nuance to understand or care for that to begin with. Nobody is stopping the more mass appeal games being made at all. Because they have never stopped doing so.

          • Derek

            They are not being localized, that is the big problem, the mass appeal games from Japan isn’t being localized while the crappy niche crap is.

          • Slayven19

            The mass appeal games like what? Give me some examples because you are talkingcrap right now.

          • Derek

            Yakuza, Gaist Crusher, PSO2. you know games that doesn’t creep out people.

    • Shippoyasha

      Let’s not forget Macross, one of the most iconic anime ever made and it’s an unlikely mix of idols/music and mecha/space-opera.

      I think that brashness to mix totally strange combinations is the strong point of Japanese entertainment.

      And Neptunia is being released on a pretty good schedule of one major game every few years. Rebirth is just a re-release on the Vita and the side games are decent for what they are. If the fans are happy, I don’t see why that matters to people who just calls the franchise crap. Nobody is obligated to play them. I’m just glad for the fans.

      • Ni ~Algidus~

        the think is. The storyline in Macross is actually good and made millions of people have interest on it. not to say that character development and story telling on Macross is on a level that these otaku-centric Idol games/animes/mangas will never get.

  • Shinobikens

    IF is bringing it over. NISA BTFO

    • SlickRoach

      Rest in NISA

    • Y’know, something tells me that they aren’t really losing any sleep over not getting this one :)

      “Compile Heart’s first PlayStation 4 game, Omega Quintet, opened at just over 9,000 sales.”

      This was a bit of a turd in Japan. Can’t imagine Compile Hearts’ international audience will generate better numbers. Not when previous numbers for their games are anything to go by. (Here’s a link for Fairy Fencer’s sales… don’t click if easily depressed:

      Sounds more to me like NISA is cutting loose Compile Heart. Probably sitting pretty enjoying their partnership with Atlus (releasing a ton of their games to Europe) and their anime distribution business, or just plain looking for new developer partners in Japan (like with Kadokawa and Natural Doctrine). Ones who can generate more sales than just a few thousand units…

      • Shinobikens

        I don’t care too much. I just want NISA to lose everything unless they decide to never censor or alter anything ever again

        • Herok♞

          When things like this happen: you can see why somethings will get censored(Like Criminal Girls, heck in a way even games like Dead or Alive with its busty women have their ages changed internationally are censored ) and I find that perfectly reasonable. So to want NISA to want to go out of business for doing what makes sense to release games in a region is very petty in my opinion. Sure people in the community don’t take issue with it but as a business you have to deal with the watchful eye of the media and avoid lawsuits. Unless the world adopts the same philosophy as Japan then games will have to be altered in some way to even be sold. I don’t like the way it is myself but you can’t just treat things as if censorship isn’t only done when needed.

          • Shinobikens

            The censoring of media is bad regardless. Some things are appropriate to censor yes but ANY creative media being censored is not good in any way. NISA censors and butchers games BEFORE even taking the games to the ESRB

          • M’iau M’iaut

            Let’s not continue this old assumption/story please. Asking a member of the board ‘what would this get’ without having to pay for a rating one cannot use is certainly an acceptable business practice. These games are not produced in versions for every individual county, so when you have a country where simply buying a game where ‘girls in school uniforms in provocative poses’ can get their customers CONVICTED — making changes is again an acceptable business practice.

            Take concerns up with your lawmakers first, please.

          • Herok♞

            Well here’s the thing once you do things for a while you start to learn things and become more efficient. If they submitted content similar to the ESRB and they said it was a No-no the first time, do you really think it would be necessary to do the same thing again to get the same answer with a different game? That’s a thing you have to consider when thinking about this type of thing.

        • Guest

          Take your insane NISA hate somewhere else.

      • zazza345

        1. Don’t use Vgchartz for anything. The numbers aren’t real, even in the imagination of the owners;
        2. The shipment was 20,000 copies, which was way lower than normal CH stuff;
        3) While it underperformed, it’s unclear if it met the sales target or not, as CH doesn’t disclose this information.

        Since IFI is bringing it over, they assume it can generate a profit (considering there’s the song licensing in this one).

    • Who says they aren’t helping with distribution?

      • Shinobikens

        Because they aren’t. IF distributed Neptunia Re;Birth

      • Renaldi Saputra

        The strange thing is in the website there’s Atlus USA in the credits

  • Alex Sargeant

    Yes! Cannot exactly believe I’m excited about a game these guys are making, but the demo fixed basically every problem I have with their games usually. Jesus christ it ran smooth.

    Definitely giving this a shot when it’s out.

  • Best news I’ve heard all day lol =^_^=

  • NeptuniasBeard

    Oh man forgot about this game. Great news, now I can start my rants about the generic MC anew. I’ll refrr to him as Steve from now on. Please be excited

    • Lol, I was thinking the same but refrained from typing it.

    • TheManWithPants

      “Brad” would be much more appropriate.

    • KazukiNanbu

      Why do you hate Generic Steve soy much?

      • zazza345

        Except Takuto has a personality, interacts with everyone and he’s very abrasive / sarcastic.

        • KazukiNanbu

          so he is not generic, good, i like main characters with personality

          • zazza345

            I could point a couple examples in which he actually behaves a bit differently than the norm, but that would be spoilers.
            In general, he’s annoyed at a lot of the girls behaviour towards him or work.

          • KazukiNanbu

            if there is some kind of character development for the MC then he will no the generic self insert character that everyone claim him to be

          • zazza345

            He certainly isn’t though you can “direct” him towards certain additional scenes with the girls if you fulfill certain conditions at a certain point of the story.

    • Demeanor

      Hey, aside from the super-generic MC name, Fang was pretty awesome! XD looking forward to this!

  • Mr_SP

    But the real question is… Is it any good?

    • DyLaN

      Its decent from the impressions I’ve seen. Though apparently the normal ending sucks.

    • zazza345

      It’s decent I’d say. Some of the systems are underutilzed and while it gets to 60 fps during battles, on certain occasions isn’t stable.
      The story is good, though don’t expect anything groundbreaking.

  • Matty

    PC version please :((

  • Bob Slim

    Good job If keep it up its 1 more game I want from them now NU

  • I forgot this even released in Japan.

  • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

    I’m very excited. With the initial concept and Japanese release numbers, I wasn’t sure we were going to get this. I’m happy that the PS4 can now have a JRPG for the early part of 2015.

  • Harry Potter

    This game should be a role model to God Eater 2

  • TheManWithPants

    Fuck it, I’ll buy it. I need more games for my PS4, and this looks interesting enough. Besides, I need more CH content coming westward in my life.

  • WhyWai

    Nowadays Compile Heart’s games have higher probability of getting a translation than all big names in Japan combined.

    • Derek

      Preach, while good games remains beyond our reach, shit like this is localized.

      • Shippoyasha

        I think CH games aren’t bad at all. Especially in the slate of the last few years, it’s a perfect game for enthusiasts of these types of games while stuff like Fairy Fencer actually garnered some broader praise for the combat system.

        Also, the people behind localizing these games aren’t weighing upon the rest of the industry. It’s none of their business to. Idea Factory, NISA and other niche companies does an amazing job catering to their world wide fanbase and it should be praised, not vilified. They have no control over the localization practices of other companies’ games. That is not their sin to bear.

        • Derek

          They should not be praised for localizing horrible games that continue to make an already shaky reputation even worse than before. Back then Japan was given some leeway but nowadays the media will not tolerate any more crap from Japan.

          This fact is made worse that the big companies have abandoned us.

          • Aristides

            The media won’t tolerate any more crap from Japan? They can bang their heads on the wall and scream till they’re blue in the face for all I care (And just about everyone who supports niche games). Just because something doesn’t break mainstream doesn’t mean it shouldn’t exist. I’ll be the first to say CH games are by no means stellar but I give them props for sticking their neck out and catering to their fanbase even after all the heat they’ve taken.

          • Shippoyasha

            The media has drummed nonsense about gaming and gamers for a long time though. This really isn’t anything new. And like you just said, the big companies should step it up in their own arena. A niche developer has no business telling Konami, Capcom, Sega and others to make more games.

          • Derek

            But the big companies view the hate the niche devs get journalists as hating Japan as a whole.

          • Shippoyasha

            My hope is that people can open a dialogue into making it more apparent that JRPGs are not a monolith. That’s kind of what I’m into doing whenever I post in comments sections for these types of games.

    • DyLaN

      Like what exactly? Because when you said big names, I immediately thought of FFXV and Zestiria which ady got localized.

      If you mean Sen no Kiseki/Kiseki its due to the amount of texts and nobody aside from XSEED wanting to tackle it.

    • Ni ~Algidus~

      Type-0, XV, KHIII, Tales of Zestiria, Monster Hunter and Persona 5 are all coming to the west.
      Now if you are talking about games like Yakuza. the franchise were not selling all that well here. Also I believe that we will get PS Nova in the future.
      And CH should not be praised for localizing their games since they tend to be horrible on optmization and have gameplay issues. it’s also easier for CH since their titles don’t need to break the 100k-500k+ mark to be profitable like the Big Hits

  • AndyError

    YES. I’ve been waiting for this!

  • awat

    oh sweet

  • KazukiNanbu

    I still don’t like the character design (and i like Tsunako art style so it not that i hate moe design) maybe is how the characters are draw
    so, its the game good? i know the game works fine (i have the slightly idea that CH were not well optimized because the ps3 was a hard system to work with) but how does it play?

    • zazza345

      The battle system is turn based but is set up in a way that you actually have multiple attacks in a turn. Also you can see the target of the enemies during their turn. Certain enemies can disrupt the turn order, though.
      One important concept is that the game rewards you for doing more than simple attacks. There’s a whole list of bonuses you can get in battle that boost the XP up to 300%.
      The only big downside I can find is that on Normal difficulty the game is super easy, while on Hard an Very Hard the enemies just murder you out of the blue.
      There’s a “clothing destruction” mechanic, but fanservice aside getting it means trouble, as the clothes destroyed lose the attributes and bonuses, as well as blocking certain mechanics. Not to mention, repairing them costs money…

      • KazukiNanbu

        a game with fan service that encourage you to no get the fan service, how will everyone react to that?
        ok im interested in the game now, thanks for the info

  • Harry Potter

    compile heart and atlus are my heroes

  • I could have told you this, because it seems most times I import a game the week after receiving it gets announced for the west =P

    May play it a bit more then ebay it then

  • Learii

    thank compile heart I love you

    Sweet! I wasn’t expecting to get a localization announcement so early, And it’s getting an English Dub, looks like this is gonna be the first Compile Hearts game to grace my PS4! :D (Good because my PS4 s starting to look very….Westerny, Though Akibas Trip will tip that spike :P)

    Though it seems !f is handling the localization….I didn’t think they were doing anything outside of the Hyperdimensions (Kinds thought they would announce Action Neptunia U next)…..But there localization of Rebirth was good so as long as they give us a decent Limited Edition (THAT WILL BE DISTRIBUTED BETTER!) Then I don’t mind to much :)

  • E.T.993

    Moe kawaii girls. Now exclusive on PS4.(Still looks better than KillZone:Shadowfall)

    • DyLaN

      I find this statement to be really amusing considering that in one of the interviews CH stated that PS4 is more suited for realistic graphic so they have trouble developing Omega Quintet for it in addition to lacking powerful PCs.

      • E.T.993

        I was more talking about the game in general,but I see your point.

  • First the new Disgaea now Omega Quintet. Kinda leaning to the PS4 more…

    • And dont forget Neptunia

      • Aristides

        Never forget Neptunia! lol

  • artemisthemp

    So the first JRPG for PS4 is coming to the West :)

    • Natural Doctrine was a JSRPG and FFXIV was before that

      If you count them its the third

      • artemisthemp

        ffxiv is technically a JRPG but, it’s list as MMORPG + it released on PC first.

        I had totally forgotten about Natural Doctrine but, that game is a SRPG to my knowledge and from what I hear not a very good one.

        • That’s why I put JSRPG =P
          Its not too bad, just very frustrating and unforgiving

          FFXVI is still an JRPG even if it is MMORG regardless of if it was on PC first or not, “you said first JRPG for PS4 is coming to the West”

          Not PS4 exclusive

    • Where They At Doe

      *cough* Type-0 HD

      • artemisthemp

        Type-0 HD is a remake and is it even out in Japan?

        • Where They At Doe

          Type-0 HD comes out in the West before Omega Quintet, and the original was never officially released in the West, so technically speaking, it IS the first PS4 JRPG

          • artemisthemp

            Yes the West but, Omega Quintet is out in Japan

  • Vash bane

    so this game plays similar to those neptunia games huh

    I only looked at a vid and half and lol the game has anti-panty shots XD
    (I only know that because the player accidently moved the camera down then purposely did it 3 more times afterwards lol)

  • Yan Zhao

    So is this the west’s first true idol simulation game? That Neptunia game didnt really count.

    • Satoshi Ookami

      This isn’t really idol simulator in its true meaning…
      It’s more like hybrid =D

  • Satoshi Ookami

    I knew PS4 was worth.

    • Crimrui

      Not was… is! There is so much to come probably. ˇˇ

  • Aristides

    m/ Pure Awesomeness, keep up the momentum !FI. I’m now actually glad I bought a PS move oh so many years ago, now I’ll actually get to use it for something XDXDXD

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    the game looks way to cute and girly for me… cuteness overload if I play I might end up in a magical girl outfit like a certin zomibe

    • KuroNathan

      zombie idols are good too. though is that really a zombie?

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        just some undead pervert

        Totally not the same

  • Crimrui

    Nice, so endings with individual girl is pretty much something that should naturally be in eh?

    • zazza345

      Yes and no. There’s an “extra” ending for the girl of your choice (provided you fulfill certain conditions) but only if you obtain the “general” true ending.
      While I’m at it, I suggest to everyone who wants to buy the game to completely avoid the normal ending, as it’s “normal” just in name, and people would really be disappointed by it.

  • SupaPhly

    so… uh, is europe getting it physically?
    no biggie, since I can import a us version, but just asking

  • sunK1D

    Still look like sht. Waiting for HDN V-2.

  • BentoBlame

    *Log Horizon Database OP tune*

    Reasons to get PS4 Rising….!

  • Beetle

    I don’t care anymore if people see me use idols to beat monsters.
    I need some JRPG in the PS4 D:

  • Smoo

    YES! It’s getting a fucking ENGLISH DUB!! Thank you!!!!!! I did not buy Tales of Hearts simply because there is no dub. I play RPGs to feel connected to some of the characters and it’s hard to get truly attached to them when you don’t really know what tone they are using in their speech. You’re just guessing what part of the sentence they were yelling about.
