Earth Defense Force is best known for its B-movie production values, as the melodramatic Earth Defense Force 5 trailer we posted earlier demonstrates. But another instalment is on the way courtesy of Yuke’s Media Creations: Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain. To us, this looks like a more mature, more pol
EDF! EDF! EDF
There were two Earth Defense Force games shown during Sony’s TGS 2017 press conference, but lets start with the janky one, shall we? D3 Publisher has announced that Earth Defense Force 5 will plunge framerates with low-quality assets from 7th December in Japan. Again, there’s no word on a Western release date just yet, but we’d...
Not safe for work, of course
School Girl Zombie Hunter. Is that not the most Japanese game name you've ever heard? This trailer for D3Publisher's zombie hunter almost looks like self-parody from where we're sitting, but no… It's a real game, releasing on the PlayStation 4. You may want to avoid watching this one at work – it all gets a bit...
Love simulation Happy Manager announced
Summer Lesson won't be the only risqué virtual reality release on PlayStation VR's docket in Japan. At the Tokyo Game Show this week, D3Publisher has announced Happy Manager – a "love simulation" which will see you take on the role of an apartment owner, where three attractive young ladies just so happen...
EDF! EDF! EDF!
The Push Square office erupted into chants of "EDF! EDF! EDF!" earlier today when Earth Defense Force 5's existence was confirmed at Sony's Tokyo Game Show 2016 press conference. The title's first trailer is exactly what you'd expect: stupidly oversized bugs, utter chaos, and more clipping than your eyes can handle. The game...
More monsters, more fun
B-movie bug busters Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair and Earth Defense Force 2: Invaders from Planet Space are looking to be released on 12th February in Europe. Earth Defence Force 2 will be hitting Vita consoles in Europe, which is considered a late release since it was distributed in North America...
We could totally go for a new Afrika right about now. Going on Safari, expensive Nikon in hand, may have been an acquired taste on the PlayStation 3 – but it was something wholly different in an industry dominated by shooters and sidescrollers. Natsuiro High School, an open world photography game from D3 Publisher, has potential, then...
Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair, an enhanced re-release of the PlayStation 3's Earth Defense Force 2025, launches in just over a week in its native Japan, but we've got a new nine minute trailer to bolster your hype levels as we wait patiently for a Western release date. As you can imagine, the chaotic shooter looks...
Japan hasn’t yet embraced the PlayStation 4 to the degree that we’d all like, but there are a stream of niche releases starting to make their way to the next-gen machine. Also due out on the PlayStation 3 next year, Nairo High School: Seishun Hakusho is a photography simulator, which will see you capturing daily life in the open...
Keeping you abreast of the situation
We’re not ones to get our noses out of joint over a little titillation, but this OneChanbara Z2: Chaos booth at the Tokyo Game Show is a little too ridiculous for even our occasionally vulgar tastes. Sure, the game may be all about scantily clad women offing the undead – but did D3Publisher really have to...
Get off my planet
Earth Defense Force is one of the those franchises that clicks because of its simplistic, focused nature. Our planet is in danger, we grab guns, we shoot absolutely everything within a five mile radius, and we get a bigger gun as a reward for our services. It knows that it's a daft game, and it doesn't strive for anything other...
The PlayStation Vita is a pretty nifty piece of tech, but it is woefully lacking when it comes to giant robots. That shouldn't be a problem for much longer, though, as a recent report from Gematsu suggests that fondly remembered PlayStation 2 title Earth Defence Force 2 will soon be ported to the handheld. What's more, it's...
Not exactly backward in coming forward
The first trailer for upcoming PlayStation 4 zombie slayer OneChanbara Z2: Chaos doesn’t serve up too many surprises, as it appears to be just as outrageous as previous instalments. Once again, you’ll play as a scantily clad samurai, carving through Satan’s spawn in swimwear. This version seems to boast...
Undead and undressed
When dealing with violent zombie hordes, we’d probably want to keep our flesh covered up. Appropriate clothing is not a phrase that exists in OneChanbara Z2: Chaos’ lexicon, however, as the upcoming PlayStation 4 undead-a-thon will see you attempting to save the world in little other than a bikini top and a thong. It’s a...
Alien ant harm
The biggest bugs in Earth Defense Force 2025 are not the iconic silver-backed ants that grace its outrageously ostentatious box art. The latest entry in Sandlot’s cult co-operative shooter series is a technical disaster, running a gamut of performance blunders larger than its colossal robotic adversaries. However, franchise fans...
We can't recommend a reason either
Adventure Time is ridiculously exuberant. Its characters are eccentric and weird, its storylines are convoluted and odd, and its humour is a mix of silly, low brow, and exceptionally well timed. It's a show of complexity and deep lore based on the insane. Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON'T KNOW!...
A bug's life
To celebrate the release of Earth Defense Forces 3 Portable in Japan, D3 Publisher has announced that the game’s heading overseas. Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable – as it will be named on Western shores – will arrive on North American consoles at some point in the near future. Unfortunately, the company has yet to announce a...
More buggy antics
The upcoming PlayStation Vita port of Earth Defense Forces 3 clearly isn’t enough to sate Japan’s hunger for oversized bugs – series overlord D3Publisher has announced that follow-up Earth Defense Forces 4 is also currently in development for PS3. The sequel promises to stick closely to the blueprint of previous entries,...
Not content with the upcoming Earth Defense Forces 3 Portable for PlayStation Vita, D3 Publisher has announced a fourth entry in the popular bug bashing series. The sequel – which is currently only confirmed for Japan – was revealed via a teaser website overnight. While the title is unlikely to skip on a Western release, the...
Entomophobics will do well to divert their attention now, because this extended Earth Defense Forces 3 Portable trailer is certainly not for the faint-hearted. It boasts more bugs than a giant ant farm on a sultry summer’s day. Seriously, even we’re starting to feel a little bit itchy...
One, two, flea
If you’re still getting antsy over the lack of PlayStation Vita content, then this Earth Defense Forces 3 Portable trailer should help to improve your mood. The locust port includes lice HD visuals and thousands of weevil bugs to swat on the move. The game's due out later this year in Japan. We promise not to use another pun until...
As teased yesterday, Earth Defense Forces 3 Portable is officially heading to PlayStation Vita. The updated port of the Xbox 360 exclusive is set to release in Japan later this year, and will boast full four-player co-operative multiplayer via ad-hoc and online. In Japan, the game will retail for ¥6,090 on its own, or as part of a...
D3 Publisher has announced that it’s bringing a new Earth Defense Force title to Japanese PlayStation Vitas this fall. Details are scarce, but we’re going to guess the game includes guns and bugs. Lots of bugs.
Despite Sony announcing White Knight Chronicles 2 for Europe a couple of weeks back, word of a North American release has been significantly more muted
That's because Sony's not publishing the game in the US, instead handing off the rights to D3 Publisher. The game will release on PS3 this summer, complete with the new game and the "remastered" version of the original (as in Japan). So,..
We're always caught in two minds when we post news about a game like Earth Defense Force: Instect Armageddon: to pun or not to pun, that is the question
See, we could have just told you that, according to the game's official Facebook page, Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon is due out on July 5th. But that wouldn't really catch your attention like a big swat to the head would it? That's why we..
Now here's a novel idea: D3 Publisher has announced that the limited edition for Earth Defence Force 2 Portable will include two full retail copies of the game
We know what you're thinking, "Why?" There's method behind the madness. EDF2P features plenty of co-op gameplay, and the limited edition double pack is available for ¥6,279 ($76). Buying two copies of the game separately would set..
