First Trailer for PC Version of Musical JRPG Omega Quintet

Ghostlight has shared the first trailer for the PC version of Omega Quintet.

Featured above, the new trailer shows off the musically-themed RPG’s main cast of characters, as well as tidbits of combat and some of its mechanics and systems.

The Idea Factory-developed Japanese RPG will launch for PC sometime next month, via Steam.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via Ghostlight:

Humanity is in peril! A deadly phenomenon known as Blare threatens to consume all life on earth and is eating away at the minds of humans worldwide. No conventional forces can stop the Blare and it has rapidly spread worldwide. But in one city, a small population holds out against this deadly threat…

Enter the Verse Maidens: five exceptional girls with powerful musical abilities are the only ones who offer any hope. These inspiring, adorable idols must use their powers of song and dance to wipe out the Blare forever. Now the Verse Maidens’ strength and courage are all that’s left to protect the people, their hopes and their dreams…

Omega Quintet is a hybrid JRPG and Idol Simulation. Use your five super-cute idols’ sound weapons against the Blare’s evil forces. Build an arsenal of deadly attacks and skills and hype up your fans to unlock powerful combo attacks.

Key Features:

  • Every battle is a stage, so play to the crowd! In Concert Mode gain a boost from your music, fill your Voltage Gauge faster and unlock your most powerful special skills.
  • Extensively customize your idols’ looks. Change outfits, accessories, hair and mics. Be careful enemies don’t hit you with an outfit-busting “Costume Break”, leaving you vulnerable to attack and red-faced in front of your fans!
  • Sing your foes into oblivion using the “Harmonics” system: weave different idols’ skills into incredibly deadly chain combos. Add each skill in the correct order to multiply the pain!
  • Use the powerful PVS system to choreograph and produce unique music videos of your idols greatest hits. Use your mouse to throw in extra effects during the concert.

    Playing this when it first came out on PS4 was pretty wild. Seeing a game from Idea Factory running at a smooth 60fps nearly brought a tear to my eye.

    Too bad the main female lead is the most horrendous case of universe loved Mary sue. Also there’s only one romance option

    Literally the only IF game I gave up on, wait for a deep discount if you gotta have it.

    PC. Musical. And JRPG. Those words alone make it sound enticing. Then you play the trailer and the first thing that pops up is “Idea Factory”! Looking at the comments below, it doesn’t seem to be too well received, but I’m hyped!

    December 1, 2017 at 7:31 am

    This game was a mistake that IF have learned from at least >_> the writing has never been as bad as this since this game came out

    To be honest, I thought you were talking about Fairy Fencer in that first paragraph you wrote. I’ll take that as a good sign because I like that game. (I’ve yet to beat it, but it’s so obvious Tiara is going end up with the MC, so it’ll be the same as Omega Quintet.)

    I still have my doubts about getting this, because “Ghostlight”

    No there are multiple romance routes in Fairy Fencer >_> Especially in ADvent Dark Force

    That’s news to me. I’ve poured 60+ hours into Fairy Fencer F so far and haven’t come across any indication of there being other potential love interests besides Tiara. Plotwise, the spotlight is usually on her, and since I’m well into the game, I assumed there wouldn’t be any others emerging this late. Now I’m really curious to see who else has feelings for the MC. (I hope Lola is one of them. She’s voiced by one of my favorite seiyuu.)

    Tiara was quite the selfish personality too, and the game universe also seems to favor her plotwise as well, so that’s why I thought you were talking about her at first.

    I’m getting it. I remember when this was one of the few exclusives PS4 had, and I had completely forgotten about it, but it’s nice to have almost all the modern IF games on one platform

    There are ending with Ethel, an ending with Eryn, and an ending with Harley.

    Advent dark force gives you an ending with Marianna too >_>

    The two main ones are Eryn and Tiara in the original with Ethel and Harley being secondary but still

    Tiara is NOT favored by the universe given her background and her secret >_> you must have been just doing the same dungeon over and over for those 60 hours. >_>
