More On: Earth Defense Force 5

D3 Publisher has revealed a new trailer for their upcoming 3rd person shooter, Earth Defense Force 5, and it is every bit as silly as you would expect from one in the series. It's a welcome thing when a game understands itself and embraces its own zaniness, and I'd have to say that's true for Earth Defense Force. This is a game that is much more Mars Attacks than War of the Worlds, and the Japense news report that frames this trailer does that every bit of justice.

Earth Defense Force 5 is a reboot of the series playing on the idea that this is humanity's first encounter with the invading Ravagers. The game will available for PS4 sometime in 2017, probably summer, in Japan. There is no word whether the game will see releases in other territories.
