Rocketeer Eat Your Heart Out, Earth Defense Force 3 Has Jetpacks

By Spencer . July 5, 2012 . 2:42pm

A new EDF unit is flying into Earth Defense Force 3 Portable. The PlayStation Vita port of Earth Defense Force 2017 includes the female trooper with a jetpack from Earth Defense Force 2 as a playable character.


The jetpack fighter can fly for short bursts and blow up ants from the sky. Earth Defense Force 3 Portable also has the standard ground-only soldier and a bunch of vehicles like tanks to drive. New weapons in the game include a reverse drone that heals allied units and another gun that boosts vehicles. It’s almost like having a "white mage" class… for a bug blasting game.

    Awesome! So they added PaleWing to EDF 2017? That’s a great idea.

    So next has to be a touch controls version of Zangeki no Reginleiv right? I will import everything out of both these games if need be. That bite-sized mission structure is just perfect for a portable system.

      I’m still personally hoping these games gets ported over.

      Though considering there’s so little buzz here when an article about EDF comes up, it makes me pretty sad about the possible results.

      Well, at worst, I’ll just import. But I would really love it if it came out in English.
