Omega Quintet Out Today on PS4

You there! How’d you like to be an idol music star? On second thought, you look more like the behind-the-scenes type. How’d you like to make someone else an idol music star? Yes, I mean it! Well, today’s your chance. Did I mention you’ll need to save the world while you’re at it? So hurry up kid, and let’s take a glimpse behind the music.

Omega Quintet is the first ever hybrid RPG/idol simulation game to hit PS4! You’ll play the manager of the idol group Omega Quintet, who is tasked to save the world from the dark forces known as Beep. The game is first and foremost an RPG, and I’ve already covered how you’ll take part in turn-based RPG battles with a set of interchangeable weapons, strategizing turn orders and attacks to gain the upper hand, and combining skills to unleash ultra-flashy, ultra-deadly Harmonic Chain combinations on the enemy. But now it’s time to take a look at what your idol group does when it’s taking a break from saving the world.

In PVS Mode, you’ll lay your weapons down and turn the music up! Once you select from a variety of original songs in the Omega Quintet repertoire to perform, you can customize every bit of the performance. You’ve got the say in whether the whole group performs or just a few of them, but my favorite part is the choreography.

On top of that, you can choose who’s singing for each moment of the song and even where the camera goes! The right performance is all about knowing who should get the solo and close-ups, but I’d definitely try to make every idol feel like a star — you don’t want jealous idols on your hands.

Finally, did I mention you can join your idols onstage? Using the PlayStation 4 Camera, you can put yourself on the big screen behind the performers, dancing along to every move. Throw in the PlayStation Move controller and you’ll really make sparks fly with added special effects! Or you can use the regular controller to disrupt the main performance with items like bombs, which will temporarily fling the idols offstage. Believe me, it is consistently hilarious.

Now, I’m no mathologist, but with up to five different characters, nearly a hundred different dance moves, and complete control of how the video is created, you can create literally KRILLIONS of unique performances. All this depth in the optional game mode just goes to show how much work has been put into all of Omega Quintet.

So let your idol imagination run wild and create a PVS worthy of the stage — or blow your audience away with a completely off-the-wall visual cacophony of weird choreography. The choice is yours — and it’s sure to entertain!

  • I know there was some kind of DLC released for the Japanese version – is there any plans to bring such DLC here? Today, perhaps?

  • Got my disc copy a day early last night and it left a very good first impression. Fun battle system, characters flowing with energy, gorgeous visuals, and a catchy soundtrack. Makes me glad I got a PS4.

  • Has anything change from the Japanese version? I been waiting for this game and played some of the Japanese version.

    Keep bringing us awesome Japanese games!!!

  • Let me know when there’s DLC (or a new game) that lets me manage a bunch of cute K/J-pop boy bands, then I’ll be interested.

  • The only question is WHEN today is it coming out? lol

  • I’ll be buying it just don’t know when.

  • Well either way… If it comes out in time for me to download it before I start streaming tonight… I’ll be streaming it tonight. If not, the rest of the week it is haha.

  • It would be nice if we could pre-order next time and get a midnight release. I know that some people got the physical copy of the game a few days early (one person got the game last week). I know there are review copies, but I’m not talking about that. My point is, it would be nice if we knew exactly when we could start playing instead of it being an unknown factor.

    One way or another, I’m looking forward to this. The JP version was fun, but I can’t really buy the DLC there.

  • Nene <3

    Thanks for bringing this in, IFI!

  • When will it be available to buy on the store? I’m not seeing it yet…

  • Well I got my LE yesterday. Thanks guys.

  • Picking up my copy at Gamestop after work tonight! Thanks Compile Heart for making great games and Idea Factory for bringing this over to us!

  • Been waiting all day for the store to have this…

  • I’m still waiting for my LE to arrive.

  • Kinda worrying me that this isn’t up yet. The store is pretty much updated even has the FF 10 remaster pre order up. I’d rather not have to go to gamestop to get this mainly due to the fact that these types of games sell out instantly here. The neptune games were gone on day one when they came originally came out.

  • DLC has begun to be added to the PSN, the game itself should be added soon.

  • I’ll probably get this eventually but I want to play through Neptunia first, but the fact that it’s not ps4 is super enticing.

  • It’s now on the PSN.

  • Still not showing for me. I may restart my console to see if that refreshes the store.

  • You may need to go through the various options to find the game as it might not show up in all the sections or in search right away.

  • Interesting. I noticed that one or more of the DLC is priced differently than the JP version. Is this on purpose?

  • Are they cheaper or more expensive?

  • A lot cheaper

  • Like in the JP version, higher amounts of in-game currency are more expensive. In NA version, except for one item, the highest amount is the same price as the lowest amount.

    Essentially, things that were around 1~7 USD are now 1 USD.

    Things that were around 8~10 USD are now 2 USD

    But what I was confused about wasn’t that. That is somewhat ‘normal’. What I’m confused about is…

    One item is about 7 USD in JP version, in NA version… It is about 7 USD cheaper *cough*

    I’m mainly wondering if this is on purpose or not.

  • I forgot to mention “if I’m reading these prices correctly.”

  • @21 thanks for the link – wasn’t showing in the store for me but the link worked.

  • I love this game so much, its super fun battles, story so far is good and funny. I have upload photo’s of my copy of Qmega Quintet Collection Limit Edition on my facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/jose213jose or Jose213Jose and you’ll find video link with my unboxing on my page as well. I took photo on each item that came with my Qmega Quintet Collection Limit Edition so hope you like it. :) I’ll be steaming my gameplay soon so I hope everyone will come watch me play it today and over the weeks.

    You’ll find me on Twitch at NifesknightZero and you can watch the live feed at my website at http://nifescknight.weebly.com/ under Gaming and Social Network – My YouTube – Twitch Broadcast. Love to share more but I don’t won’t to go overboard so visit my page for news updates on the game from me or my steaming at Twitch for questions on the game Qmega Quintet and Collection Limit Edition item i got. Peace Out >.<

  • @28 You’re welcome!

  • Im stuck deciding if I want this game or Toukiden Kiwami :(

  • Am i hearing Johnny Yong Bosch as Takt in this?

    Anyway, i’m loving this game. I expected it to be totally cutesy moe, and it is, but i did not expect it to contain some hilarious jerks in it, too. And it’s been cracking me up all day. I love it.

  • @31 Here’s a tip: download the demo of Toukiden Kiwami; if it’s anything like the original it should last you quite a bit and you will be able to transfer your progress to the actual game once you buy it.

    That way you can buy Omega Quintet now, play both games, and buy Toukiden Kiwami once you can afford it.

  • Based IF which other games are you gonna bring to us?

  • Yes, but can I go into their cosmosphere and unlock new magic?

    (I am considering buying it, though)

  • Yay Arigatou! :) Fun For All.
