Earth Defense Force 4 Is Coming To The West As Earth Defense Force 2025

By Spencer . December 13, 2012 . 12:01pm


D3Publisher couldn’t contain the giant ants and spiders in Japan. Massive bugs are coming to the West when D3Publisher releases Earth Defense Force 2025 (aka Earth Defense Force 4) for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in North America next year.


Earth Defense Force 2025 has new giant insects like the Retiarius spider that covers buildings with webbing and Wing Divers that can fly around the battlefield. There’s also an interesting new Air Raider unit that summons tanks and supports a squad by placing health restoring beacons.

    Yes! EDF! EDF! EDF!

    YESSSSSSSSS (though the rumor of 2017 Vita being digital only is kind of a bummer)

    • Testsubject909

      Yeah. I’m a fan of the physical copy and knowing that it loads faster from the game cartridge then it does from the harddrive makes me like physical copies on the Vita all the more. But hey, I’ll take it in any way. Portable EDF and me screaming EDF like an idiot down the street just sounds so appealing to me… Okay, maybe not that last bit but hey, it’s bound to happen.

      D: I hope that’s false. I had to import New Little King’s Story from Europe to avoid digital only and get it in English. Luckily Dokuro had tons of language options right off the bat.

  • Ladius

    Day one, both for this and for the PSV port of EDF3.

  • Wake

    Yes please. B movie goodness! I was hoping Tank! Tank! Tank! would replicate the greatness of EDF, that failed miserably.

  • Koji Kabuto

    Very good news, but please, give us Onechanbara Z:Kagura too.

  • Oh cool gotta grab this when it does.

  • Testsubject909

    This is going to get awkward 2021 sequels down the line.

    But until then. YES! YES! EDF! EDF! EDF!

  • JazzWithAttitude

    Will have splitscreen for the story mode?

  • Göran Isacson

    Blowing up giant insects and saving the world… feels good, man. Feels good.

  • AaqibRawat

    i need more ammo.
    storm 1 we need back up
