Apart from how Nini came to attend Ashihara High, not much is known about his personality. His special power is Demon Sight, and it lets him see invisible to normal people. In English, his full name is Novus Nemo. His Japanese name is Taichiro Oyama.

In the Japanese version of Loop8, Gakuto Kajiwara will voice Nini. Kajiwara previously voiced Asta in Black Clover and Shinra Kusakabe in Fire Force. The English website for Loop8 has not listed a voice actor for him or if there will be a dub for the game.

Loop8 will have a turn-based battle system and is a JRPG with multiple endings and paths. You will be able to affect the story through dialog choices. Nini and his friends all have special powers that they can use in battle. You will also have to mange your time wisely, as there will be both a calendar and clock in-game.

Loop8 is in development and will come out on the Nintendo Switch on March 16, 2023 in Japan. The English version will come out in 2023 as well, though there is no official date as of yet.
