New Earth Defense Force 5 trailer shows off the EDF forces


The EDF deploys!

D3 Publisher has debuted a new trailer for the upcoming PS4 game Earth Defense Force 5, which has turned out to be a real treat.

I always love trailers like this to have a little fun while showing off the game. It's got everything you could need! Comedy, action, drama, giant alien bugs, mechs, and explosions! In addition, D3 Publisher has shared some more details about the game in the description of the video.

"Humanity, rise up and oppose your fate!

In 2013, 7 years after Earth Defense Force 3, the long-awaited sequel Earth Defense Force 4 arrived on the scene bringing the ultimate in despair and exhilaration. In 2015, new missions were added and the game took the battle to the PS4 with more content and intensity than ever before as Earth Defense Force 4.1 The Shadow of New Despair.

Now, in 2017, prepare yourself for a whole new fight in Earth Defense Force 5, an all-new tale of invasion by unknown alien forces and humanity's confrontation against them.

The 5th installment in the series brings with it the shocking arrival of a humanoid enemy! Is humanity destined for destruction in the face of this unprecedented threat?

Humanity, rise up and overcome your despair! Oppose your fate!"

Truth be told, I've never played an Earth Defense Force game before. It seems like it has everything I would enjoy in a game, but every time one comes out, I either completely forget or another title I was waiting for comes out and I buy that instead. Maybe that changes with this one.

Currently the game only has a summer 2017 release window for Japan. However, given the English subs in the trailer, we should receive an international release window as well soon.
