Earth Defense Force 2025’s Independence Day-Like Mothership And Three Player Tank

By Spencer . January 10, 2013 . 5:28pm


What’s more dangerous than gigantic ants? How about the mothership in Earth Defense Force 2025. This flying orb packs a giant gun that shoots a laser that decimates buildings. Say good by to comic, CD, and game retailer Torus which is actually a nod to a Tsutaya, an actual Japanese retailer. Earth Defense Force 2025 has a Wing Diver unit that can fly up and shoot the laser cannon before it fires.

This quadruped fortress is armed with a with a plasma cannon and it drops Hectors. The key to taking down mobile fortresses is shooting its hatch when it opens. I think the Wing Diver would be best for this job.

Earth Defense Force 2025 has a couple of new vehicles you can use in multiplayer mode.


Epsilon Armored Railgun can carry up to three people. One player uses the railgun and the other two can use turrets to keep shooting ants while the railgun recharges.

HU04 Bruto is an armored helicopter with two turrets players can control. While you can shoot enemies in the sky, the Bruto’s side turrets can’t aim downwards. Up to three players can ride the Bruto.

E651 Titan is another vehicle that can carry three players. One person fires the Requiem cannon and the other two use the side turrets.

      It’s not that you can’t help but say it. It’s that it’s mandatory!

      EDF! EDF! EDF!

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Seeing EDF here keep making me remember of Kaijuu Busters lol. Minus the factor that we are playing in Cities vs Alien.
    Here hoping that Bamco will still continue Kaijuu Busters series.^_^ As what game is better than a game that allowed you facing Godzilla one on one with tanks?

    You forgot one last thing that gigantic orb shaped mothership can do (at least what it could do in 2017).

    It can open up and start it’s massive multi-death-laser-midnight-rave-mode. All that’s missing is the music to go along with the lightshow of death!

    Is EDF 2025 coming to North America?

  • Alex Cattaneo

    Looking awesome! cant wait.

  • MIke R

    I’m not kidding when I say that this is one of the greatest video game series of all time.

  • Göran Isacson

    …. If this games equivalent to the White House blowing up in Independence Day is a very famous retailer of otaku goods blowing up, that would be outright nerdiest thing I’ve ever seen.

    And the most GLORIOUS.
