Idea Factory International have confirmed the release schedule for Omega Quintet‘s Western launch. The idol simulation and roleplaying game will roll out as follows: both physical and digital formats will be available in North America from April 28; physical copies will be available in Europe from May 1; and digital downloads will be possible in Europe from May 6.

The press release of this announcement also came with a handy summary of Omega Quintet‘s gameplay:

Music plays an integral role in the game’s battle system, providing stat boosts and more during battle, and as the manager of the idols, players will be able to build relationships with each unique member of the group. This will also be the first title on the PlayStation®4 to utilize the Move controller for special idol performances!

Key Features

  • Power of music! 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? 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! 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.
  • 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!
