Earth Defense Force 2025 coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 next year

D3's giant insect franchise is coming back next year.

D3's giant insect franchise is coming back next year. Earth Defense Force 2025 is slated for release on PS3 and Xbox 360. Unlike 2011's Insect Armageddon, this follow-up is from Japanese developer Sandlot, creator of the original series. As typical for the franchise, you can expect "over-the-top action and massive city-leveling explosions." Man, property values must be really terrible in D3's apocalyptic vision of the future.

New to 2025 is a four-player multiplayer mode. In addition, this iteration promises to feature the most missions in the franchise so far. And of course, you can expect some really silly mech costumes (pictured above).

            So I take it you guys are all fans of the EDF games. Any of you play it on the PC? Does it have online co-op like the xbox?

      This has nothing to do with Diablo 3 and now I'm sad.

          I don't even know what to make of this post.

          I wanted to have a snarky reply but I honestly am not sure if you are poking fun at the game or not.

              Yeah, I read my post and thought, "Oh, it sounds like I'm happy because HE is unhappy." Not so! This is what happens when we post first and think later.

                Haha, you misunderstand. I hope you were poking fun at D3 because I dislike D3.

            Had a headache and was tired; ambiguous pronoun resulted. I meant I was happy that D3 and Sandlot were paired up for a new EDF, rather than the D3 initials having anything to do with Diablo 3.

      Is this being developed by Vicious Cycle Software?

      Hopefully they will have 100+ levels like the first one and not just a handfull like IA... I liked both but missed a lot of things from the first one...
