Vicious Cycle, one of D3 Publisher’s internal studios in the States, is making Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. That online enabled, giant bug blasting game is *not* Earth Defense Force 4.
D3 Publisher announced Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon for Japan and its slated for a summer release, after it launches in North America sometime this winter.
D3 also announced Earth Defense Force 4, but didn’t say anything about the title other than its in development. Not even what console(s?) it will be on.
And if that’s not enough Earth Defense Force for you there’s also Earth Defense Force Legend for mobile phones. Out of all the EDF titles, it’s the one D3 plans on releasing first. Japan gets it in January.
