Earth Defense Force 4 Releasing (in Japan) by Independence Day, Gets a New Trailer

on April 1, 2013 12:53 PM

Among the crowd of April Fools here’s some actual news. D3 Publisher just announced that Earth Defense Force 4 (also known as Earth Defense Force 2025) will launch in Japan on July the 4th for PS3 and Xbox 360. The release date for the already confirmed western localization is still to be determined.

Together with the announcement the publisher released a rather lovely new gameplay trailer showcasing massive weapons and a whole ton of explosions, that you can see below.

The notable thing about Earth Defense Force 4 is that, after the not very fortunate western-developed parenthesis with Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon, we see a return of the original Japanese developmentb studio Sandlot. At the very least armor design looks way cooler, doesn’t it?
