Yes, Earth Defense Force 4 Is In Development Too

By Spencer . December 24, 2010 . 12:11am

imageVicious Cycle, one of D3 Publisher’s internal studios in the States, is making Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. That online enabled, giant bug blasting game is *not* Earth Defense Force 4.


D3 Publisher announced Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon for Japan and its slated for a summer release, after it launches in North America sometime this winter.


D3 also announced Earth Defense Force 4, but didn’t say anything about the title other than its in development. Not even what console(s?) it will be on.


And if that’s not enough Earth Defense Force for you there’s also Earth Defense Force Legend for mobile phones. Out of all the EDF titles, it’s the one D3 plans on releasing first. Japan gets it in January.

  • It would great if it Sandlot is behind this one. I like what’s shown of Insect Armageddon so far, but Sandlot has a unique touch.
    I checked their site to see if they mentioned anything, but instead I got a very cute motto:

    Oh, and a countdown:
    I wonder if that’s it or a different game.

      It would also be great if Nintendo finally brought over Sandlot’s Zangeki no Reginliev to the states for the Wii

    • Booyashaka!
      Yeah, it was a countdown to all four EDF games; PSP, IA, Mobile, and 4. All had footage save for 4.

      Look at the trailer for EDFPSP and this from the PS2 game:

      The guy has the same uniform, so could be a port/remake of the PS2 game. Guess we’ll see.

    My guess(es):
    1. 3DS
    2. Wii
    (I want it to be a PS360 game but that’s not reasonable)

      I don’t see why not.

      • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

        Well, it wouldn’t make sense to release another EDF so close to Insect Armageddon so soon. They wouldn’t want to saturate the same audience or have 2 products with the same name compete against each other near simultaneously. It just doesn’t make business sense. So unless EDF 4 isn’t coming until 2012… not gonna happen.

        • It definitely won’t come until 2012, duder. Sandlot are a small company, no way they can pump put two games in one year.

          My prediction: I think this is gonna be the XBLA game they were hinting at years ago but I think they might consider turning it into a retail game depending on the sales success of Insect Armageddon.

          • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

            XBLA/PSN is a possibility.

    • This, I can’t see the PS3 and 360 getting two games so close to another, and this is most likely by Sandlot who most recently made Zangeki for Wii. (they also made a DS game, was that before or after EDF3?).

      I’d say 3DS over Wii, because they kept the platform secret, and they probably have far more faith in it than the Wii.

    • HPN

      I too would like this to be PS3/360

  • PrinceHeir

    so theres a EDF PSP game, mobile game, insect armageddon and 4 sometime in the future? that’s alot of EDF games ^^

    • It was a very good year~♪

  • Scallion


  • Wow, an explosion of new EDF games? Me likey.

  • As long as they don’t screw up multiplayer (and I mean split screen, not online) they can make as many EDF games as they want
