This morning’s Tokyo Game Show brings news that giant bugs and terrifying mechs are set to plague the planet once more, as D3’s long-running kaiju-battle series Earth Defense Force is getting a new sequel for PS4.

Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain will see the elite monster-stompers of the EDF charge headlong into battle to clear the planet of huge insects, aliens, robots and other threats, armed with a mass array of explosive weaponry, and even some new tech, such as as slick tank and some airborne power-armour.

A trailer was also released alongside the news, narrated by an uncannily familiar voice, can you place it?

Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain will launch on PS4 in 2018.
