Have you ever wanted to be President? Well too bad, but you can definitely be Vice President in this new game announced by Atlus.
Citizens of Earth is a new game from Atlus where there are no NPCs, everyone is recruit-able, and your mission is to save the world from whatever it is that’s happening. Something sure is going on, but it’s up to you to find out what!
Here’s the official description from the press release;
“You’re the newly elected Vice President of the World, spending some time in your home town after winning a hard-fought election campaign. But suddenly, the whole world goes crazy-eight bonkers and you’ll need all the help you can get to save it. In Citizens of Earth, the new RPG from ATLUS and Eden Industries, help comes in the form of 40 recruitable citizens, each with unique abilities. Everyone can lend a hand — from the way-too-jittery Barista and the ever-optimistic Weatherlady to the notoriously skeezy Car Salesman.”
