Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair is coming to North America, courtesy of Xseed. The game will be released this Fall. The game is a “reimaginging” of Earth Defense Force 2025 with a better framerate and more content. Here’s a quick feature summary:
After selecting from one of four unique playable classes and customizing their weapons, players will lead NPC troops into city-wide battles against hordes of seemingly endless giant bugs, robots, and other colossal enemies. Two players can enjoy local co-op and versus modes, while online co-op supports up to four players to increase the odds against this massive alien threat.
