Citizens Of Earth Release Date Delay; Retro 16 Bit RPG Will Take Its Oath Of Office In January For The Whole World To See
Attention, people of Earth! I must regret to inform you that Citizens of Earth, the upcoming retro 16-bit game from ATLUS, has been delayed until next year. Now is the time for unity and understanding.
The newly elected representative of the free world will be taking office on January 20, 2015. I am sure ATLUS is aware that the 20th of January is the date reserved for the president and vice-president of the United States to take the oath of office. Perfect timing.
After a long drawn out political battle, you, the Vice President and the second most powerful man in the world, awake one morning and find out that the whole world has gone crazy. At the very least, crazier than it already was. Naturally, it is up to you to discover the root of the problem and take all the credit, while doing none of the work. Please, the Vice President doesn't actually do anything, and neither should you!
The game is modeled after the 16-bit JRPGs of the 90s era. The fun part is that there are no NPCs in the game. Everyone you encounter can be recruited and each brings a unique, and at times, bizarre set of skills to your group. There are 40 to choose from, so you'll never be without some amusement.
Citizens of Earth will be available for $14.99/€11.99 in North America and Europe beginning on Jan. 20, 2015 as a download-only title for the PS4, PS Vita, 3DS, Wii U and PC.
