Earth Defense Force 2025 gameplay trailer explodes bugs

The behemoth bug-smashing Earth Defense Force didn't fare so well under another developer in EDF Insect Armageddon, but the series is back with creator Sandlot for Earth Defense Force 2025. A few minutes of gameplay skittered under the door and went unnoticed in all the Christmas hubbub, but now we're back at work let's take a few minutes out to enjoy how squishing colossal ants, spiders and robots should look.

The behemoth bug-smashing Earth Defense Force didn't fare so well under another developer in EDF Insect Armageddon, but the series is back with creator Sandlot for Earth Defense Force 2025.

As you can see, EDF 2025 involves shooting oversized insects and other invertebrates until they stop rampaging across Earth's cities. If you, or they, should knock down a building or two in the fight, well, I'm sure we citizens will understand a little collateral damage is inevitable. It packs four-player multiplayer, too.

Earth Defense Force 2025 is due on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 some time in 2013.

      This looks awesome, much closer to 2017. I liked many of Insect Armageddon's features such as online coop and character classes. Just cut and paste those into the greater enemy and level diversity of the first game and you've got a winner.

        I actually loved the handling on the jetpack guy in IA. Too bad he was pretty toothless in a fight.

          All the classes were better than the way the guys move in 2017. The way they did dodge/roll/dash/run was so much better than spam rolling in 2017.
          I just want those classes and the levels and weapons from 2017 and I'd be happy.

      I don't know what that video is for but it looks way better than EDF.
