After a failed Kickstarter campaign, the RPG adventure Citizens of Earth was fortunate enough to be picked up by publisher Atlus to help bring it to the world successfully. Since then, the game has come along very nicely, and its latest teaser trailers shows its heavy influences from the Nintendo’s classic Earthbound more than ever.
Instead of a child imbued with psychokinetic abilities, however, Citizens of Earth has you playing as Vice President of the World, recruiting various citizens to join you in your adventure to save the world. From the general navigation to the battle system, the traditional RPG style is all there, and it will be interesting to see how a new game handles these mechanics so lovingly borrowed from Earthbound. While there may not be another game in Nintendo’s series for a while (or maybe ever), Citizens of Earth may hit that spot many have been craving.
Citizens of Earth is set to be released this September for PC, 3DS, Wii U, Vita, and PS4.
