Back in April, D3 Publisher announced that it would bring Earth Defense Force 5 to the west, but did not provide any further details on when and how besides a “summer” release window.

Today we get a trailer from Sony Interactive Entertainment showcasing the game with just a “coming soon” and revealing the inevitable PS4 version. At the moment of this writing there is no news of other platforms and the official website is not yet open.

If you’re not familiar with the series,¬†Earth Defense Force¬†is basically the only one among D3 Publisher’s productions that doesn’t focus on a lot of fanservice, shifting the camera on wacky alien invasions with tons of giant insects and flying saucers, that the player needs to counter in the heavy booths of the EDF.

The game launched in Japan last year, and the last thing we heard is that it sold over 300,000 copies for PS4.

At the moment, there is no release date for the west, but hopefully, we’ll hear more before the summer season ends.
