Loop8: Summer Of Gods is a time-travel RPG that follows protagonist Nini and his classmates as they try to defeat the Kegai, demonic entities who have forced humanity to the brink of extinction.

Loop8: Summer Of Gods is a narrative-driven, time traveling RPG using an emotion-based AI system, where the players' decisions and interactions with other characters impact their emotions and how their stories unfold. These interactions can also impact how allies perform during combat, creating a unique experience for players as their decisions can change the outcome of battle. With the power to travel back in time, players can rectify mistakes or chart a new path forward to explore the myriad possibilities of an August that never ends.

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.

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 En Morikura (Kizuna Ai) and Shingo Adachi (Sword Art Online), mascot character designer Ryudai Murayama (Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin), concept artist Kitsuneiro (Amatsu Kitsune) and composer Noriyuki Iwadare (Ace Attorney series).


Publisher XSEED Games released the first fully translated trailer, highlighting the cast of characters and their interactions with the protagonist in Ashihara, including a closer look at the turn-based combat in the title.

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 – 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 your hands. Repeatedly return to the start of August, alter your actions, and see how they turn the tides of destiny across multiple endings.

Loop8: Summer Of Gods is coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam) in Spring 2023.
