Loop8: Summer of Gods is launching in North America this June 6. A while back, XSEED Games upped the hype with a cinematic trailer, which featured the opening scene of the game. This time, we're treated to a new video that features a guided gameplay tour.

This new video offers a deep look at the game's unique mechanics along with the systems which defined this RPG. The video is narrated by Phillip Roper, who is a marketing coordinator at XSEED Games. He walks viewers through interactions with some of Ashihara's residents and shows how relationships factor into the narrative and gameplay. The video then culminates in a fight against one of the Kegai which threatens the town.

A Coming-of-Age Adventure

Loop8: Summer of Gods offers a coming-of-age adventure where players follow protagonist Nini and his classmates in their quest to defeat the Kegai, demonic entities that pushed humanity to the brink of extinction. Having been raised on a failed space station known as "Hope," Nini decides to go down back to Earth and spend his summer in Ashihara, one of the last remaining sanctuaries of humanity. With the gift of "Demon Sight," Nini can use his special connection to the gods to reset the world.
