Earth Defense Force 5 will be released for PS4 in 2017 (in Japan)

It looks like the Earth is going to need defending one one more time, as D3 Publisher announced that Earth Defense Force 5 will be released for the PS4 in Japan in 2017. Revealed yesterday during their Tokyo Game Show presentation, the fifth game in the increasingly over-the-top action franchise will add new enemy types including frog-like monsters and humanoid ground troops. They’ll join the invasion alongside the series’s standard assortment of alien ants, bees, and spiders.

XSEED Games publishes the Earth Defense Force franchise outside of Japan, so hopefully they’ll make first contact soon and let us know when Earth Defense Force 5 will be available in North America.
