D3 Publishes and develops Sandlot announced a release date for the Switch port on Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair.
Earth Defense Force 4.1 coming to Switch on December 22, 2022.
The bug-killing shooter was originally released for PlayStation 4 in Japan back in 2015. A western release came later that year and early 2016 to Europe. Finally, a Windows PC (via Steam) version was released in 2016 worldwide.
Here is an overview of Earth Defense Force 4.1:
We knew they would come. We did everything we could to prepare. But they still set the world on fire.
Ravagers, we called them. The world’s militaries fought them with everything they had, but in the end only one force stood a chance: the EDF, a coalition of humanity’s greatest soldiers and scientists. Finally we shot down their mother ship and brought peace to the world…
…for about eight years. It’s 2025 now, and our worst fears have come true: It was only the first wave.
But this is not the end. This time we ARE ready. EDF has developed over 500 different weapons and vehicles. Our Rangers are crack shots with all kinds of weapons. Our Wing Divers rain down death from above. Our Fencers are walking, steel-clad arsenals. And our Air Raiders can take control of the battlefield. If it takes four scores and seven games, if we have to fight in the streets, on the beaches or with our allies in cyberspace, we will fight and we will win.
It’s a battle for the planet’s future between the Ravagers, a merciless swarm of alien invaders, and the Earth Defense Force (EDF) in this third-person shooter.
The most overwhelmingly outnumbered forces of Ravagers the series has ever seen will take the EDF warriors to the depths of despair and back! Online co-op play supported.
Now and forever we are the Earth Defense Force.
