Omega Quintet Launches for PC on December 15

Ghostlight has announced the PC release date for Omega Quintet.

The Idea Factory-developed musical-themed RPG will launch on December 15th for PC, via Steam. The game will have a 40% discount from its regular price for a time, before reverting back to its $29.99 price.

Here’s a rundown on the game:

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

Omega Quintet has been available for PlayStation 4 worldwide.

    I do not suggest this game for anyone unless you REALLY enjoy grinding and punishing jRPG mechanics. Let me elaborate:
    Omega Quintet has a mechanic in it called Order Break which I will refer to as “OB” for the rest of this comment. What OB means, is that for any reason the game decides, at any time, no matter what your party is doing (with one, and only one, exception), the enemy monsters can initiate an OB and take their turn. The monsters can do this multiple times in a row. What’s more, the monsters in this game like to inflict status effects on your characters… often times ALL of them, including instant death. OB can also happen when you get a surprise attack on the monsters. You can go into battle with all your characters poised to get the first strike, only to have the monsters OB you multiple times in a row and literally wipe your party out before you even get a chance to attack.
    As a result of Order Break, the best (and really only) strategy to beat Omega Quintet is to use one particularly effective strategy that involves having all five characters equipped with the same weapon type and spamming the same combination of attacks in EVERY. SINGLE. BATTLE. There is only one time when the enemies can not OB your party and that is when you use a mechanic called Harmonics which allows you to take up to all five of your characters’ turns together as a single mega turn. But because of the potential for OB, said strategy basically requires that you defeat the enemy formation in a single turn. And that includes bosses. Anything you don’t beat in a single Harmonics chain will turn into a 30+ minute slugfest as you struggle to keep your characters alive and able to do any damage.

    What options other than leveling (items, skills, etc.) are available to you for augmenting your party’s defense stats? I don’t usually rely on them a lot, but may have to change my habit if grinding isn’t enough to compensate for the game’s cheating tendencies.

    Nothing can save you from being Order Broken aside from playing on an easier difficulty… but if you play on anything other than hard you are locked out of end game content. And the NG+ system in this game is also terrible. Very few things carry over.
