Loop8: The first scene of Summer of Gods
The introductory film for the young adult role-playing game Loop8: Summer of Gods has been made available by publishers XSEED Games and Marvelous Europe.
The publishers have provided the following synopsis of the game and its trailer:
The trailer serves as the opening cinematic for the game and gives players a look at some of the many characters to befriend, locales to explore, and enemies to face throughout their journey. The cinematic also showcases the game’s stunning art style, with its detailed, watercolor-inspired scenery and anime-influenced character designs over a musical backdrop provided by the original song “Genfunkei” sung by NaHo/QiSui, which sets the poignant tone.
A coming-of-age RPG, 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.
In Japan, Summer of Gods will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch on June 1; elsewhere, it will be available on June 6 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam.
