Omega Quintet aims to take the PS4 stage by storm in 2015.
Gamers may want to start practicing their harmonies. Why? Because the hybrid RPG/idol simulation known as Omega Quintet will be arriving in North America and Europe come Spring 2015. This title marks Idea Factory’s first PlayStation 4 game, and will be available both physically and digitally.
You’ll take on the role of an idol manager and be able to build relationships with each member of the group. These members will utilize music in order to provide themselves with stat boosts and more, thus making music quite the integral part in Omega Quintet’s battle system.
Omega Quintet won’t just be the first Idea Factory game on PlayStation 4, however. It will also be the very first title on the PlayStation 4 to utilize the PlayStation Move controller for special idol performances.
Omega Quintet takes place in a world that has been overrun by a mysterious, malevolent darkness. Humanity’s only hope rests in the music of singing idols called “Verse Maidens”. These Verse Maidens utilize the weapons of sound, and are tasked with restoring the world.
Five plucky Verse Maidens, along with their manager Takt, will take center stage in the upcoming game. If they have any hope of stopping the darkness from claiming the last of humanity, they’ll need to band together. But will they be able to?
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!
