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.

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.
Developed by SIEG Games and published by XSEED Games, Loop8: Summer of Gods will release on June 6, 2023. The game will be released on console platforms by publisher Marvelous Europe in Europe. The title has been rated “T for Teen” by the ESRB.
