If you were hoping for a sequel to the 2D RPG Citizens of Earth by Eden Industries, you're in luck. SEGA has announced Citizens of Space for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It will release on June 18 and feature an all-new combat system, deeper recruitment mechanics, and plenty of unique worlds to explore.
You'll play as the newly elected Ambassador of Earth to the Galactic Federation of Planets. Everything seems like smooth sailing until you arrive at the Federation headquarters for your first Assembly. You will find that Earth, the very planet you're supposed to represent, is gone missing. Now, out of a job (and a home), it will be up to you to recruit Citizens from across the galaxy and figure out who is responsible so you can get back to your cushy job as an Ambassador,
With access to over 40 recruitable Citizens, all available at any moment in the story, and each with their own role to fill in and out of combat, there's plenty to see and do. According to the developers, everything has been streamlined so you'll spend a lot less time managing and more time leading your Citizens. A brand-new battle system will have you put your skills to the test, as your ability to leverage timing and reflex-based minigames makes all the difference between a landslide victory and a concession speech. And now you'll have new worlds to explore beyond Earth. You can journey from your home planet to a variety of humorous, wacky worlds, each brought to life with vivid art and organic environments.
Citizens of Space will be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on Steam on June 18 for $14.99. You can see more information about the game on the official website.
