A teaser website was set up for Earth Defense Force 4 last July. Since then we have not heard much about the game not until now any ways. This week’s issue of Famitsu however, has officially announced the title, revealing that it will launch in 2013 in Japan for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Currently, we know very little about Earth Defense Force 4, other than it is 55% complete (Famitsu regularly states what percentage of an announced game is completed) and that this new entry will have support for “online play for a large number of people.”
Earth Defense Force 2017 or Earth Defense Force 3 was released in Japan back in 2007. So far, a Western release for the game has not been announced.
