on May 8, 2014 3:04 AM

Compile Heart released today the key art (that you can see above) and the first trailer of the upcoming JRPG Omega Quintet, which will be the first PS4 exclusive entry in the genre.

Below you can see the trailer, which looks quite lovely, and while it doesn’t show gameplay, it does give us a glimpse on the game’s engine.

We also get a deeper description of the story, which is darker than one would imagine:

The world has been eroded by a mysterious phenomenon called the “Beep,” which undermines the spirit of humans and absorbs life. Every attempt to fight it failed, and now the “beep” covers almost the whole world.

All that’s left of humanity if a few tens of thousands people trapped in a small city. The only one that has a chance to fight the Beep is the “Wing Priestess,” a girl with special powers born only once every few generations.

Girls can fight the Beep with the power of songs and dancing, and they’ll use such power to protect the human race and give it back its hopes and dreams.

We also learn that the pre-order bonus will be a music CD with the soundtrack of the game, while the limited edition will include an artbook, a drama CD and a making of DVD.

The developer also opened the official website, that can be found here.
