Loop8: Summer of Gods

Today Xseed Games and Marvelous Europe revealed a new trailer of the brand-new coming-of-age JRPG Loop8: Summer of Gods

The trailer focuses on showing off the opening cutscene of the game and providing a look at its large cast of characters. It also includes the theme song “Genfunkei” performed by NaHo/QiSui.

We already know that the game is releasing in the west on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on June 6, which is just a few days after the release date for Japan.

You can watch the trailer below.

If you're unfamiliar with the game, below you can find an official description directly from Xseed's press release. It certainly comes with rather obvious Persona and Shin Megami Tensei vibes, but it also appears to have interesting elements that set it apart from other JRPGs with a school setting and adolescent protagonists. 

"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."
