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.”
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…?
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.
