Earth Defense Force 4 coming to North America in 2013 as EDF 2025

D3Publisher will bring Sandlot's bug-slaying and alien-crushing action game Earth Defense Force 4 to North America sometime next year under the name Earth Defense Force 2025.

Players will have the option of saving the planet from total destruction on either the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 in 2013, taking down giant creatures amid huge explosions and B-movie caliber dialogue. Earth Defense Force 2025 offers a variety of classes, including the traditional on-foot soldier and the flying Pale Wing, and dozens of weapons to choose from.

We had a chance to go hands-on with Earth Defense Force 2025 during Tokyo Game Show this year. You can read our thoughts on the matter here.
