Set in the small Japanese village Yasumizu, a strange mist suddenly surrounds it and prevents everyone from leaving. This only means one thing: the ancient gods have returned for The Feast, where they hunt down the villagers one by one. Legend has it that five beast guardians lived on a mountain nearby the village. The villagers’ only hope to survive is to inherit these guardians’ powers, but they will never be able to save everyone.

Enter the protagonist, Haruaki Fusaishi, who visited the village at the absolute worst time. He becomes trapped in a Groundhog Day-esque loop, where no matter what he decides, he will die. But with each death, he will rise to repeat, this time with more knowledge about the situation.

Raging Loop will be available for PlayStation 4 and Switch when it releases mid-October.
