Loop8: Summer of Gods confirmed for Release in Spring 2023
We're excited to reveal that that Loop8: Summer of Gods will be released across Europe and Australia this coming spring on the Nintendo Switch™ system, PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and Windows PC via Steam.
Today’s trailer features a first look at the game’s English voices, which will be offered in addition to the original Japanese voices, giving you a sneak peek at the captivating characters in the quaint town of Ashihara circa 1983.
The team behind Loop8: Summer of Gods includes 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), concept artist Kitsuneiro (Amatsu Kitsune), mascot character designer Ryudai Murayama (Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin), and composer Noriyuki Iwadare (Ace Attorney series).
In this original coming-of-age RPG, step into the life of Nini, a newly earthbound teen who arrives in the quaint Japanese town of Ashihara in August 1983. Explore the town, befriend its people, and face off against the Kegai in turn-based battles where the outcomes depend on the relationships you’ve built and the decisions you’ve made. Use Nini’s special connection to the gods to reset the world, with each loop allowing Nini and his allies to relive the 8th month over and over until they get it right…or the Kegai overcome them entirely.
With one month until the world ends, how will you spend each day?
