If you are looking for a brand new, in-depth JRPG to get your teeth into, alike to the Persona series, then get your eyes on Loop8: Summer of Gods.

Available today across Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and PC, Loop8: Summer of Gods delivers some time-travelling, narrative-driven RPG action. 

Time-Travelling Chaos

It’s difficult enough to manoeuvre your way through the foundational teenage years without using the ability to time-travel, but in Loop8: Summer of Gods our protagonist Nini must do just this. 

The latest JRPG-come-life-sim, releasing today on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch and PC platforms throws you into 1980s rural Japan, besieged by a supernatural force known as the Kegai. In exactly one month, the Kegai will cause the end of the world – Nini and friends must therefore use Nini’s hotline to the gods to reset the world at the end of the 8th month, over and over again.

What follows is Groundhog Day, or Groundhog Month, where you will spend your days engaging in conversation with a variety of characters – furthering and altering your relationships with them – as well as engaging in colourful, bombastic turn-based combat against the Kegai. 

The outcomes of the battles will in fact be influenced by relationships with your party members, so don’t go skipping those important conversations!

Explore the Beauty of Japan

In your free time between fighting monsters, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the rural town of Ashihara. This comes complete with quaint restaurants and shops to attend with your party – all in the pursuit of making friends, of course.

It is this picturesque rural landscape that you are fighting for, after all. Having the ability to time-travel will allow Nina to return to the start of the 8th month, and alter the fate of Ashihara – there are many endings to unlock, boosting replayability.

The key features of Loop8: Summer of Gods are worth taking in

  • 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 your everyday actions impact your battles in the Underworld, and vice versa.
  • Choices That Can Change the World Loop8’s emotion-driven AI system responds to every action you take and decision you make. Characters’ emotions and stories will vary greatly based on your choices, making each playthrough wholly unique.
  • A Picturesque View of Rural Japan Your adventure takes place in a nostalgic and beautifully recreated snapshot of a rural Japanese townscape. Head downtown to recharge at a local restaurant, or hang out at the shops to strengthen your bonds with other characters.
  • 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.

Game Description

Step into the life of Nini, a newly earthbound teen who arrives in the quaint Japanese town of Ashihara in August 1983. Explore the town, befriend its people, and face off against the Kegai in turn-based battles where the outcomes depend on the relationships you’ve built and the decisions you’ve made.

Use Nini’s special connection to the gods to reset the world, with each loop allowing Nini and his allies to relive the 8th month over and over until they get it right…or the Kegai overcome them entirely. With one month until the world ends, how will you spend each day?

I'm an avid gamer who will play pretty much anything... but stick an open world or adventure game in front of me and I'm more than happy.
