XSEED and Marvelous will launch Loop8: Summer of Gods this June, the publisher confirmed today via a new trailer. The time-travelling adventure created by some of the minds behind the Lunar and Grandia series is shaping up nicely from the looks of it.
Described as a coming-of-age tale, Loop8: Summer of Gods features protagonist Nini and his classmates who must work together as they aim to defeat Kegai, a demonic species bent on wiping out humanity. Humans reside on the space station Hope and some return to Earth. In Nini’s case, he returns to Ashihara, one of the few remaining sanctuaries on the surface. Nini is gifted with Demon Sight and is able to reset the world, allowing him and his allies to loop and relive the 8th month over and over until things go right or risk it all and watch as the Kegai swarm the planet.
Physical editions will also be available at launch on consoles, including a standard edition available for $49.99($54 CAD), and a limited Celestial Edition, available through the XSEED Game Store and participating retailers, for $69.99($94 CAD). A special “Digital Deluxe” edition featuring the original soundtrack and artbook will also be available for purchase on Steam for $59.99 ($66 CAD).
Loop8: Summer of Gods will launch on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on June 6, 2023.
