Late last night, Atlus announced that the EarthBound-inspired RPG, Citizens of Earth, has been pushed back from its original November release date until January 20, 2015.
While no word was given regarding the reason for the game’s delay, it is safe to assume that Atlus is intent on polishing the game to its fullest before letting the public get their hands on this whimsical, pop-culture infused RPG experience.
About Citizens of Earth:
Citizens of Earth pits players as the second-highest-paid bureaucrat in the land. The game begins just after winning a long, drawn-out candidacy, and the VP returns to his hometown for some taxpayer-funded rest and relaxation. But after just one night passes, the VP awakens to find the world gone berserk! As elected official he has two responsibilities: investigate what’s caused people to go crazy… and delegate as much of the dirty work as possible. Citizens of Earth has 40 wacky citizens the VP can recruit to form a party and send into battle in his place.
Citizens of Earth is shaping up to be the kind of RPG that players absolutely have to experience. Stay tuned for more information regarding this interesting title as it becomes available.
