Compile Heart began streaming a teaser video for its new PlayStation 4 idol role-playing game *ω*Quintet (Omega Quintet) on Thursday.
The video reveals the story: Entities known as "beep" suddenly began attacking humanity. Defenseless against these attacks, homes and lives were lost. But as the world faced its demise, "utamiko" (singing maidens) emerged as the beacon of hope for humanity.
The game stars five "pure of heart" idols:
Rui Tanabe as Kyouka
Moe Toyota as Kanadeko
Inori Minase as Nene
Erii Yamazaki as Aria
The game's staff includes:
Music Production: Lantis
Music Producer: (idea) WILL
Character Design: Fukahire
The game will ship on September 18. The regular edition will cost 6,980 yen (about US$70) before taxes, while the download version will be 6,000 yen (US$60). The limited edition will bundle an exclusive box and special booklet for 8,980 yen (US$90). People who pre-order will receive an original soundtrack CD. More details are in Thursday's issue of Kadokawa's Weekly Famitsu magazine, and the complete version of the above video will debut on Monday.
