Go back to space with Earth Defense Force for PS Vita


2:00 PM on 06.16.2012



There's nothing quite like a port of a five year-old game to get you stoked about your brand new system. Hey! Wait! Come back! I'm being serious! D3 Publisher is bringing Earth Defense Force 3 Portable to PlayStation Vita and I'm legitimately excited to take the "so bad it's good" shooter around for another spin.

Probably better known on this side of the Pacific as Earth Defense Force 2017, Sandlot's 2007 Xbox 360 release is shedding its exclusivity after half a decade to find a second home on the Vita with some subtle enhancements. No, the graphics are still as ugly as sin, but four player co-op might be a welcome addition if you have a few other friends interested in saving the world from giant bugs.

While it's currently only slated for an autumn release in Japan, I'd be surprised if D3 didn't bring the title westward at some point considering the series' cult popularity and the dearth of software available for Sony's new portable.

Onechanbara Z2: Chaos trailer full of tits, upskirts, and murder

Holy crap, that song it goes into around the 45-second mark is so damn bad. Onechanbara Z2: Chaos is hitting PS4 in Japan this October, where it can hopefully help shift some units, as the PS4 library isn't tickling the country's collective fancy. Looks I lot better than the Onechanbara I played on Wii. more

Sony's PlayStation 4 isn't setting Japan ablaze just yet, like it is in much of the world. Part of that has to do with the dearth of software specifically targeted toward Japanese audiences. Enter Onechanbara Z2: Chaos, ...more
