Indie developer Eden Industries has announced that its upcoming RPG, Citizens of Earth, will be coming to the Wii U eShop. Players will take on the role of "Vice President of the World" and will rally citizens of a small rural town to battle enemies and complete various tasks to earn money and gain more power. There will be over 50 characters to recruit, and the game has quite a sense of humor as well.
Siliconera recently took a look at the indie title and described it as "Earthbound meets Little King's Story." Here is an excerpt from their preview.
The game has wacky enemies like a Honey Bear… which is a honey filled bear shaped like a bottle of honey and a Toupee Eagle. Bald Eagle. Toupee Eagle, get it? Players will also run into a Rastafarian Samurai, but you won’t run into him randomly. Citizens of Earth puts enemies on the map and you can command your followers to strike mobs first to start combat. In battle, you have three followers and fight using a turn based system. Citizens of Earth also has an online versus mode where you can bring a team of characters and fight with a friend.
Citizens of Earth is also coming to the PC, Mac, iPhone, and Android.
