Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair brings the series to PS4
Adds Pacific Rim-like giant mechs and monsters.
Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair brings this year's PS3 and Xbox 360 giant insect-slaying adventure, Earth Defense Force 2025, to the PS4.
Better yet, it adds playable giant mechs that you can use to face off against Godzilla-sized monsters.
Some footage of this was captured at Tokyo Games Show this year, while NeoGAF found some nice images of this from Famitsu.
The Earth Defense Force series was always something of an acquired taste. Eurogamer contributor Cara Ellison wasn't feeling EDF 2025 and noted that "EDF has sort of lost its weaponised bukkake novelty" in her Earth Defense Force 2025 review. But perhaps these new Pacific Rim-like features and ostensibly smoother framerate will sway you towards this next-gen release?
Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair is set to come out in Japan next year and hasn't yet announced a western release.
