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.
