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.
What caught my attention regarding Loop8 is not only the English cast but the team working on the game. This 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).
Talk about a stacked development team working on a pretty exciting game that will launch next year.
