Ghostlight to release hybrid JRPG/Idol Simulation Omega Quintet on PC!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BRAINTREE, UK – 13/04/2017

Hot on the heels of their recent announcement that Lost Dimension will be coming to PC, Ghostlight have today announced that they will also be bringing Idea Factory’s awesome hybrid JRPG/ Idol Simulation, Omega Quintet, to PC later this year!

Omega Quintet was developed by Compile Heart under the brand Galapagos RPG for PS4, whilst Fukahire handled the original character design. Originally released in Europe by Idea Factory International last year, Omega Quintet received a number of excellent reviews.

In their 4.5/5 review Digitally Downloaded were huge fans saying: "This is, effectively, an independent game from a small, creative team.  And it’s a massive success at being that.  It’s a deep JRPG mixed with both satire and humour, it’s something you haven’t seen before, and most importantly: it’s fun.  Real, genuine fun."

Meanwhile, RPGSite gave a very solid 7/10, saying: "Far and away, the best feature in Omega Quintet are the battles themselves.  Compile Heart put a lot of work into providing a complex system."

More on Omega Quintet

In a world overrun by a mysterious, malevolent darkness, the only hope for humanity rests in the music of singing idols Otoha, Kyoka, Kanadeko, Nene and Aria, known simply as the “Verse Maidens”.  Wielding weapons of sound, they are tasked with fighting back evil and restoring the world, but it won’t be easy!  These five plucky girls – along with the help of their manager, Takt – will have to give the performance of a lifetime to stop the darkness from claiming the last of humanity.  Will they be able to band together and blow this evil away, or will they fight only to discover that the darkness has been lurking within them the whole time…?

• Power of music!  Harness the power of song to defeat evil!  Every fight is a performance, and you’ve gotta give the audience what they want!  Enter “Concert Mode” to get musical boosts and fill your Voltage Gauge faster to perform special skills.

• Break a…garter?  It may be the end of the world, but your idols must always be ready to perform!  You’ll be able to customize their outfits, accessories, hair, and more!  Be careful though, as sustaining hits from enemies can cause a “Costume Break” which will compromise their outfits, leaving them vulnerable to more damage!

• Lethal harmonies!  An idol group combines their talents to create beautiful harmonies, and 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 – it’ll be music to your ears!

Ghostlight will be working hard to create the best PC version possible, offering support for multiple screen resolutions, Steam Achievements, Cloud saving, plus full mouse/keyboard and controller support.
