D3 Publisher is bringing the Xbox 360 game Earth Defense Force 2017 to PlayStation Vita in Japan. The portable version adds a four player cooperative mode via ad-hoc connectivity or over the Internet play. There are also a handful of bonus weapons you can get by purchasing Earth Defense Force 3 Portable at launch.
The Electropara Blaster, a top secret weapon made with alien technology, comes with the game at launch.
Grab the double pack which has two copies of the game so you can play with a buddy and you’ll get two different weapons. The Reverse Drone launches nanomachines at the allies on the battlefield frontline. Nanomachines heal players, which allows one player to be a healer, if they want. Limit Booster increases the power of vehicles like the bike, helicopter, mech, and tank.
D3 is also giving an additional weapon if you purchase Earth Defense Force 3 Portable from their online store. Heat Blaster is an incredibly powerful short range laser gun. It’s so strong you can’t reload it in battle.
Players can access these extra weapons by redeeming a product code on PlayStation Network. D3 Publisher haven’t said if these bug busters will be available for purchase or if there will be any other downloadable content.
Earth Defense Force 3 Portable comes out on September 27.
