Earth Defense Force: World Brothers is making its way to Nintendo Switch and PS4 starting May 27, 2021. Brought to you by D3PUBLISHER and YUKE’S Co, Earth Defense Force: World Brothers is the long-awaited third-person voxel-style shooter, first announced last year at the Tokyo Game Show. This is the first time the Earth Defense Force series sees a completely different look, but still packs the same amount of action and content as before.
For new players unfamiliar with the EDF series, they can look forward to defeating gigantic enemies, from insects to robots and aliens, all composed of 3D pixels and access to a large arsenal of weapons and soldier classes; each class can maximize their unique abilities to lay waste on their enemies in Earth Defense Force: World Brothers. The popular third-person shooter series’ exciting debut in a brand-new market aims to create a fun, new appearance, and gameplay experience for both EDF fans and new recruits alike.
Though players can save the world in the Earth Defense Force: World Brothers campaign solo with AI teammates, they can also enlist with friends in 4-player online Co-op Play on each platform; however, the game does not support cross-platform play. Players can also look forward to playing offline with two-player split-screen on the PS4 system and four-player LAN Co-op on the Nintendo Switch system, which requires players and their friends to each have their own Nintendo Switch and copy of Earth Defense Force: World Brothers.
