Japanese game publisher D3PUBLISHER Inc. and developer team YUKE recently announced a new third-person shooter EARTH DEFENSE FORCE: WORLD BROTHERS.
This will be the first title of the EDF series that will be released on the Nintendo Switch in addition to the PlayStation 4 console. World Brothers will be taking on a completely different look from the rest of the series with the new voxel art style.
The game will launch in North America and Europe early next year on the Nintendo eShop and PlayStation Store. The game publisher is aiming to deliver the ultimate EDF game that is packed with a lot of content for new and returning EDF fans.
In a parallel universe where everything is in 3D voxel art, a new battlefield has taken stage in the EDF series. Voxel Earth is falling apart into square pieces, breaking its blocky peace, as alien invaders in large motherships have caused a catastrophic rift in their massive attack. With the world in turmoil from an alien attack by enemies from the EDF series, the player and the “EARTH DEFENSE FORCE” must rise to the occasion and save the day to restore a shattered Voxel Earth to one peace in “EARTH DEFENSE FORCE: WORLD BROTHERS.”
