Earth Defense Force: World Brothers shows off more cute bug-bustin’ action


One of the quirkiest looking releases on the horizon has to be Sandlot’s cute voxel shooter Earth Defense Force: World Brothers. This spin-off title to the popular EDF franchise will take the series’ typical monster-mashing action and stylize it with adorable voxel visuals.

As EDF: World Brothers‘ Japanese release approaches D3 Publisher has launched a new weekly video series, that will offer overviews of a variety of elements found within World Brothers‘ colorful, insect-infested universe.

The first episode, which you can check out below, focuses on the arsenal of weapons, items, and gear available to your pint-sized party of agents, as they do battle with ants, wasps, and the most adorable giant spiders you ever did see. I think it looks an absolute blast, but perhaps a little too slow-paced.

Earth Defense Force: World Brothers launches in Japan on PS4 and Nintendo Switch on December 24. Fret not, a western localization has already been confirmed, expected to arrive in early 2021.
