Citizens of Earth: Second Term is a 2016 turn-based roleplaying game, and a sequel to the 2014 video game Citizens of Earth. The game will be released on the PC, Wii U, 3DS, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita on March 12th, 2016. Second Term features all-new citizens to recruit, a story that continues from where the previous game left off, and a bit more humor.
The story, like the original, is split into chapters, including a prologue.
The game begins with the Vice President from the first game sipping a cold drink as he relaxs on Crystal Beach. A newspaper flies up from the ground and hits him in the face. The headline reads "PRESIDENT OF EARTH MISSING; VICE PRESIDENT TO TAKE PLACE." Suddenly, the Vice President is thrust out of his chair and into a limo. He is given a change of clothes and the limo arrives at Nation's Capital. The Vice President gets out of the car and is sworn in as the temporary President of the World. The crowd of paparazzi parts to reveal the Vice President's mother and brother. His mother kisses him on the cheek and his brother gives him a high five, congratulating him on his sudden upgrade.
The Vice President and his two relatives decide to explore Nation's Capital, encountering several enemies whilst. They eventually enter Columbus Avenue, where they are approached by Cool Kid and his posse. The VP and his two teammates fight against the Cool Kid and win. The Kid cries because he got beaten up on his birthday, and the only way to win his trust is by heading to Mercury Comics and picking up a special present. As the Cool Kid runs off crying, the VP heads back into town and arrives at Mercury Comics.
When they walk in, the Comic Shop Owner is in a panic. The special present the Cool Kid wanted was a Limited Edition Superfan Issue 1 comic book, and the pages are missing. He asks the VP to find the missing pages that are scattered throughout Nation's Capital. The locations are as follows;
- Trash Can located on Columbus Avenue, right next to the Cool Kid's house.
- Rooftop of Mercury Comics. This page can only be accessed by using the Brother's Package Stack skill, which he gets at Level 3.
- Table inside of New World Diner, located in the main part of Nation's Capital.
- Dropped by a Glory Eagle on Columbus Avenue.
- In the bathroom of Cool Kid's house.
Once these are all found, return to Mercury Comics and ask the Comic Shop Owner to re-combine it. After doing so, the Comic Shop Owner joins your team. The team then heads back to Cool Kid's house. They find a party going strong for the kid, but he's nowhere to be seen. The boy's father suggests going upstairs.
The President enters Cool Kid's room with the restored comic wrapped in wrapping paper and in a box. He gives Cool Kid the present and the boy opens it, delighted. He joins your team. After celebrating Cool Kid's birthday, the President views a newscast revealing that several members of the Senate have been reported missing. The VP is surprised by this, and later discovers that a mysterious truck is bound for Twinett. Its contents are unknown, but the TSA (Truck Safety Association) says that there are lifeforms inside. The Cool Kid says that his uncle is part of the TSA, so he decides that the team should head to the TSA headquarters to get some more intelligence. However, before they can leave town, they encounter the Delivery Boy from earlier, except mutated into a hideous beast.
