While we were all expecting roleplaying game (RPG) Citizens of Earth to release right about now, the indie titled picked up by publisher Atlus came about some last-minute delays. There is, however, a new release date locked in.
Regrettably for the impatient minds among us, Citizens of Earth is yet another game that passes up 2014 for a delay that goes into 2015. It will now release on January 20, 2015.
There is some good news involved with the announcement though. For one, Citizens of Earth will release both in North America and Europe at the same time.
Moreover, publisher Atlus will abide to fair regional pricing, with a tag of either $14.99 or €11.99.
Citizens of Earth has made it clear that it wants to polish up before its release. In a Facebook post, there’s an outline of three major issues.
On one hand, it wants to ensure players are given a balanced experience, which was unsure in a point in the game where quests can be done in an open order. In its extent, explanations for quests need improvements, as some were too vague.
Another issue appeared on the map, where players spend a lot of time. To prevent getting lost, these problems needed to be handled.
Especially fans of classic RPGs should look forward to Citizens of Earth. It takes a lot of inspiration from the iconic Earthbound series.
In this game, however, players portray a Vice President, who delegates fighting roles to recruited campaign supporters. People can be found in various locations and each one can be put to use in the party, after completing certain requirements.
Citizens of Earth will release for PC, Playstation 4, PS Vita, Nintendo Wii U and 3DS. There was originally a Mac version planned for the game as well, but the developer recently stated that it had no money left for a port.
