The time-travel RPG Loop8: Summer of Gods is finally coming to North America in spring 2023. It will be available on PC through Steam, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

Loop8: Summer of Gods is a coming-of-age adventure that follows Nini and his classmates on their journey to defeat the Kegai. These are demonic entities responsible for pushing humanity to the brink of extinction. Nini was raised on a failed space station named "Hope." He returned to earth to spend the summer in Ashihara, one of the last remaining sanctuaries of humanity. He has a gift known as "Demon Sight" which allows Nini to use his special connection to the gods and reset the world. Each loop lets him and his allies relive the eighth month over and over again until they get it right or be overwhelmed by the Kegai.

The game is sure to be a treat with the creative minds behind it:

  • Senior producer Yoichi Miyaji (Lunar series, Grandia series)
  • Game designer Yuri Shibamura (Gunparade March, Touken Ranbu)
  • Character designers Shingo Adachi (Sword Art Online) and En Morikura (Kizuna Ai)
