Today ATLUS announced that Citizens of Earth will be releasing in November instead of the previously planned October. It will launch of five platforms simultaneously, including PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, and the PC. No specific reason was given for the delay, but given that elections are typically held in November, perhaps the devs wanted to be a bit thematic.

Either way, the bad news of the slight delay should be tempered with news of the price, as the game will be released for $14.99 on all platforms and will have up to 30+ hours of classic JRPG-inspired gameplay. Earthbound lovers will feel right at home with the combat system of Citizens of Earth. Either way, we’re happy to see the low price on this title. Will you be picking it up when it’s released in November?

    If it’s anything like Earthbound, I’ll pass.

    • CydeFxt

      Do you not like Earthbound?

      • anthony optimo

        Played it, experienced the story, and beat it; and I can say that I have played better Nintendo games, and much better SNES RPGs.

        • CydeFxt

          Fair enough

        • we all have… but, earthbound is kind of the weirdest game´s out there… like, when you fight those 5 beavers that say “i´m the 3rd most stronger beaver” and the next one is like “he was not the 3rd strongest… i´m!!!” and the next one says the same thing, you´re just like WTF?! And it´s so funny because of that!

          “For some reason there is some giant pencil blocking your way”

          things like that… is not the best Snes RPG, but it´s kind of the most unique. IMO

            To Earthbound’s credit, the music is the only redeeming factor. Onett’s theme and Paula’s theme are the ones that stood out most to me.

  • Jared Lytle

    I like earthbound, but (and keeping in mind I don’t usually discriminate this way) I HATE the way this game looks.

    • TheBoldman67

      The art style is rather un-attractive.

      • Pablo Lavín

        Something like that, yeah… Feels weird and unconfortable to see.

        • Prizm

          maybe that’s because it looks like an app

  • Agent721

    You guys need to link the petition to have Robin Williams in the next Zelda. That would be awesome…have him & his daughter in the game, as NPCs in a town, maybe doing a gig.

    • cement

      robin Williams daughters name is Zelda that might affect the game. :/ I mean for Nintendo standards

      • TheBoldman67

        How about an easter egg or something?

  • Arkamarky

    I think I might pick it up because of the low price! 😀

  • Zach

    Hey, Could someone help me get in back in contact with Wii U Daily?

  • Darius

    why am i interested in this game!?!
