Earth Defense Force: World Brothers looks a hell of a lot of fun


Don't you mean Blocko shirt?

D3 Publisher has released a lengthy Japanese trailer showcasing new footage of EDF: World Brothers, an upcoming spin-off entry in the bug-busting Earth Defense Force franchise.

Previously revealed back in June, Earth Defense Force: World Brothers will capture all of the frenetic, pulse-pounding, monster-squishing action of the EDF series, but stylised in a super-cute voxel world. As is the franchise wont, World Brothers will see players tacking an army of ants, wasps, spiders and other skyscraper-sized critters as they lay waste to some of Earth's most beloved locations and also Parliament.

The new seven-minute showcase not only gives us a great look at the game in action, but also spotlights the array of wacky costumes and skins with which to adorn your favourite EDF operative - including ninja getup, a cat-girl maid, not Harley Quinn, not Boba Fett, and not Gundam. I think it's shaping up to be an absolute blast, and will slide perfectly into those cathartic "end of the work day" gaming hours.

Earth Defense Force: World Brothers will launch in Japan on PS4 and Nintendo Switch December 24. A western localisation has been confirmed for 2021.
