Compile HeartandGalapagos RPGare bringing us a brand PS4 title (the first of many we hope!)- mixing elements of the Idol simulation and JRPG genres into a stunning new IP! Set to be the first 1080p JRPG for the PS4, Omega Quintet will feature stunning artwork fromFukahire.
The game follows protagonist Takuto as he manages and protects the 'Verse Maidens', five pop idols (Otoha, Kyoka, Kanadeko, Nene, and Aria)who have the ability to defeat the invading 'beep' with the power of theirsong and dance!
Alongside detailed descriptions of the pop idol's personalities Compile Heart have already included descriptions of their richcast of charactersthat hint at a number of clashing personalities and budding friendships.
The combat and gameplay seems to imply a turn-based RPG, but it would not be a true Compile Heart game without theconfirmedSenran Kagura-inspired desctructable clothing (and big numbers when you attack, lots of big numbers)!
As a genre crossover don't expect fighting to take up all your time, you have some idol managing to do! Compile Heart have released a video showing off the "PVS" (Promotion Video System)a feature in the game that lets you make your own dance videos - allowing you to customize the live performances to your liking.

The story in this game is garbage. It's filled to the brim with every single anime moe-girl trope possible, and doesn't have an original bone in its body. The plot is incredibly predictable, boring, and just so dumb.
Look, I know most people don't play these games for the story, so I'll just cut straight to the chase - the girls in this are dumber than a bag of bricks and make me want to rip my PS4 in half. They all have a very generic design, they're cute and all, but that's literally ALL they have going for them. They have no personality outside of the generic anime-girl tropes associated with each of their characters. You have the quiet one, the super cute and bright childhood friend, the 'apparently they're 30 but they look 15' girl, and so on.
The game play is about as fun as eating a bag of cockroaches, it's the most bare-bones JRPG combat system you can get, and while I can definitely get behind something like that, it kind of sucks that the game is ridiculously easy and thus takes away any potential fun you can get from this game. I started on hard and was still wrecking everything. To be honest, I think I put around 10 hours into this game before I realized how bad it was, so maybe stuff actually starts to get difficult later, but I wasn't going to force myself to play such a horrible game to get to that point.
Everyone just avoid this mess, there are so many other options out for the PS2, the PS3, and hell, even the VITA has a billion better options than this crap.
Full of Fan service!!!
great game, must play!
In my opinion, Omega Quintet will be enjoyable the most for the fans of anime in general.
If you watch anime now, or enjoyed it in earlier years of your life, Omega Quintet will give you a lot of fun conversations with good sence of humor, girls in sexy outfits included.
But if you're not an anime fan at all, I cannot recommend this game, because outside of anime-like story telling which is very enjoyable for the fans, player is left with mediocre mob grind experience, which for 2016 is really not the way to go.
In a conclusion, if you don't like anime, you're better off looking somewhere else. But for anime fans, it's a solid choice. I found myself able to tolerate mob grind to see the story unfold.
Next to Digimon, this is the only true old school turn based JRPG on the system. The battle system isn't as in depth as the Neptunia/FFF games, as those have an element of strategy to them. The leveling, though, has an extensive grid which allows to you customize which weapon you want each girl to use, and also let's you pick your skills as you see fit. I really enjoyed this game and recommend it!
