Atlus Revives Failed Earthbound-Inspired Kickstarter RPG

Last Fall, the developers of modern JRPG Citizens of Earth took to Kickstarter to raise $100,000 for their project. Sadly, it didn't work out. But now, thanks to Atlus, the game is going to be completed on time after all.

So if you're on the lookout for a good comedy RPG based in modern times (we really don't have enough of those), make a note that Citizens of Earth will be available for PS4, PS Vita, Wii U, 3DS and PC (via Steam) in September. The trailer up there should give you an idea what it'll be like, and you can also trawl the old Kickstarter page for some (possibly outdated) info.

It may be a solid game, but the character designs aren't exactly appealing and when you're pitting something as "inspired by earthbound" that's kind of an important series to stand against.
