Earth Defense Force coming to Vita in Japan this September
Earth Defense Force 2017, the shooter that came to Xbox 360 in 2007, is returning this year as a PlayStation Vita game in Japan.
According to Dengeki PlayStation, the game is slated for release on September 27.
D3 Publisher's new portable version will feature ad-hoc and online multiplayer for up to four players, unlike the Xbox 360 game, which offered two-player local co-op.
Earth Defense Force 2017 was followed by Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC in 2011.
