XSEED Games is bringing the narrative-driven, time-traveling RPG, Loop8: Summer of Gods to Switch in Spring 2023. Specifically in Japan, the game was slated for a March 16th, 2023 release. Unfortunately, publisher Marvelous and developer SIEG Games have now confirmed a delay in Japan to June 1st, 2023. This delay is due to the team wanting to improve the quality of the game. No subsequent delay in North America or Europe has been announced at this time.
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.
