D3 Publisher has launched the primary trailer for Earth Defense Force: World Brothers, the voxel-styled EDF spin-off revealed earlier this week. The video begins with a short overview of the sequence’ storied historical past, earlier than diving proper into the pint-sized motion.
In the two-minute trailer, we see quite a lot of totally different troopers from the world’s best combating pressure laying waste to armies of ants, wasps, spiders, and different creepy crawlies throughout Minecraft-style replications of well-known international places. Battles happen on the bottom and up within the air, with an array of explosive weaponry and even some ninja-based melee fight. We are additionally handled to a collection of enjoyable skins, comparable to a rootin’ tootin’ gunslinger and a kawaii maid.
I used to be truly just a little stunned by the dearth of enthusiasm that greeted the preliminary announcement, as I believe this new design is a welcome change of tempo from the standard EDF aesthetic. This trailer additionally seems to point out that World Brothers‘ gameplay shall be very related in playstyle to the primary sequence, and as such I believe it seems to be prefer it might be a variety of enjoyable. Hopefully, we’ll obtain information of a western localisation in some unspecified time in the future down the road.
Earth Defense Force: World Brothers is at the moment in improvement for PS4 and Nintendo Switch. It will launch in Japan later in 2020. For the extra conventional EDF followers amongst you, Earth Defense Force 6 can also be in improvement for a 2021 launch.
