Yuke and D3 Publisher announced at Sony's PlayStation conference at Tokyo Game Show on Tuesday that the Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain game for PlayStation 4 will debut in 2018. D3 Publisher also began streaming the game's first trailer on Tuesday.
D3 Publisher announced in June that it is delaying its Earth Defense Force 5 PS4 game from the original summer 2017 release window in order to enhance the game's quality. The game is slated to ship in Japan on December 7.
In the game, the Earth is at peace when suddenly an alien life form called "immigrants" attack, and the EDF must again take up arms against the invaders. The new enemy in this latest game in the series is a humanoid enemy.
XSEED released Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair in North America on the PS4 in December 2015, and D3 Publisher released the game worldwide on Steam in July 2016. The PS4 game originally shipped in Japan in April 2015.
