Earth Defense Force 5 Announced for Japan

The next title in the Earth Defense Force series will be launching in Japan later this year. Confirmed at the Sony Tokyo Game Show Press Conference, Earth Defense Force 5 is set for a December 7th 2017 release.

Along with the release date, we got a new trailer for the game which shows the series mainstay giant insect enemies along with new deadlier baddies and bigger kaiju-like monsters then we’ve seen in the previous instalments of the series.

While no release date has been stated for North America as of yet, we’re expecting that the latest instalment makes the jump west after the last titles impressive outing.
