Coming-of-Age Time Travel RPG ‘Loop8: Summer of Gods’ Reveals English Gameplay Trailer; New Screenshots

XSEED Games and Marvelous Europe have shared the first English gameplay trailer for their coming-of-age time travel RPG, Loop8: Summer of Gods. The title’s general premise is reiterated alongside the combat system. Character bonds are dependent on strength for the latter to succeed feasibly.

Throughout this game, the protagonist Nini and his classmates try to fend off demonic entities known as Kegai. They have driven mankind to the verge of extinction. Nini, raised on a failed space station called “Hope,” decides to spend his summer in Ashihara, one of humanity’s final sanctuaries. However, he finds himself having to use a gift from the gods, the ability to reset the world. With this skill, the cast repeatedly relives the eighth month to hopefully defeat the Kegai once and for all.

This title takes place around 1983 in the setting of Ashihara. The vast cast can be bonded with, and they all have their own secrets to uncover, with player choice determining their potential antagonism or friendliness.

Additionally, the first official English screenshots were shared, viewable via our gallery below:
