About Loop8: Summer of Gods
A coming-of-age adventure, Loop8: Summer of Gods follows protagonist Nini and his classmates as they try to defeat the Kegai, demonic entities who have forced humanity to the brink of extinction. Raised on a failed space station known as “Hope,” Nini returns to Earth to spend his summer in Ashihara, one of humanity’s last remaining sanctuaries. Gifted with “Demon Sight,” Nini can use his special connection to the gods to reset the world, with each loop allowing him and his allies to relive the 8th month over and over until they get it right…or the Kegai overwhelm them entirely.
Physical editions will also be available at launch on consoles, including a standard edition available for a MSRP of $49.99, and a limited Celestial Edition, available through the XSEED Games Store and participating retailers, for a MSRP of $69.99. A special “Digital Deluxe” edition featuring the original soundtrack and artbook will also be available for purchase on Steam for $59.99.
Tour of Ashihara
To coincide with the announcement, the publisher has released a new video tour of Ashihara and its residents circa August 1983, the fateful month over which the game takes place. Ashihara holds many mysteries for players to discover, all while they defend the town from the ever-present threat of the monstrous Kegai.
Lastly, Loop8: Summer of Gods releases first in Japan on June 1 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
