London, United Kingdom – 12 September 2022 – Marvelous Europe today announced 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 players 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). 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.
KEY FEATURES Choices That Can Change the World – Loop8’s emotion-driven AI system responds to every action and decision players make. Characters’ emotions and stories will vary greatly based on player choices, making each playthrough wholly unique.
A Beautiful Seaside Town Brimming with Mystery – A nostalgic and beautifully recreated snapshot of rural Japan circa 1983, Ashihara is home to a colorful cast of characters, each harboring their own secrets to uncover. Will players’ choices make them trusted allies...or mortal enemies?
Live an Ordinary Life, Fight Extraordinary Enemies – Nini will build bonds with Ashihara's residents while protecting the town from the ever-present threat of the Kegai, repeating the cycle to uncover how everyday actions impact battles in the Underworld, and vice versa.
Relive the Past to Alter the Future – Though the deadline for humanity’s extinction draws ever closer, Ashihara’s fate remains in players’ hands. Repeatedly return to the start of August, alter Nini’s actions, and see how they turn the tides of destiny across multiple endings.
