The alien bugs and futuristic samurais of EDF 2025

A trailer and a batch of screenshots released today for Earth Defense Force 2025 show off the alien bugs and the Fencer soldier headed to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in February 2014.

Press play above to see what publisher D3 calls "an action shooting bonanza," which involves a war waged between giant extra terrestrial insects and earth's last, best hope: the EDF. The trailer pays particular attention to the Fencer soldier, the "samurai of the 21st century," whose copious firepower and ninja-like reflexes take center stage.

For more on the game, you can also check out an episode of Today I Played in which Polygon puts the Japanese version of the game (where it's known as Earth Defense Force 4) through its paces.
