We’ve got some bad news friends. Atlus announced today that the upcoming Citizens of Earth will be pushed back from its original October release date to sometime in November. While this means you fine folks will have to wait a bit longer to jump into the shoes of the Vice-President of the world and and battle evil on the taxpayers dime, it also means you will have more time to salivate over these most excellent screen shots and dream about how awesome the game will be when it is finally released.
In Citizens of Earth, you play as the newly elected Vice-President of the World who, after returning to his home town for some well deserved rest, discovers that something is most definitely wrong in the world…somewhere…maybe! With some help from the local townsfolk, as all of the game’s non-player characters can be recruited, the Vice-President must prove his suspicions and possibly even save the world in the process.
Citizens of Earth features a retro-inspired gameplay experience that draws from such classic games as Earthbound and other 16-bit RPGs and promises over 30 hours of gameplay. With it’s classic, yet modern aesthetic and gameplay that promises less grinding and more discovery, fans of all ages will be able to enjoy when Citizens of Earth lands on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, and PC this November for $14.99.
So, what would you do if you were vice-president of Earth? Would you institute mandatory “bring your alligator to work days”? Or perhaps even change the nation anthem to “We will Rock you” by the band Queen? Tell us in the comments and make sure to follow us on Twitter at @APGNation!
