Citizens of Earth pulled from eShop following Humble Bundle appearance


Hopefully they fix it soon

[Update: Atlus has provided the following statement to Destructoid: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to immediately remove Citizens of Earth from the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS. Both Atlus and Nintendo are working together to get Citizens of Earth back up on the eShop. We apologize for the inconvenience to anyone affected by this, and assure you that we're working to restore it as quickly as possible."]

Talk about the worst time to uncover an exploit in a game.

Following up on VVVVVVCitizens of Earth has been pulled from the 3DS eShop due to a homebrew vulnerability being found, which wouldn't be as big of a deal if it wasn't featured in the newest Nintendo Humble Bundle offering. Folks can't find the game on the storefront, but Humble codes should still work.

As of right now, the bundle landing page also doesn't say anything about the situation with Citizens, so people are rightly confused. We've reached out to Atlus to see what's going on.
