The year is 2017 and Earth is under the threat of the Ravagers, insect aliens bent on the total annihilation of humanity. As a member of the Earth Defense Force, you and your team are the only ones who can stop them.
Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable is one the first games Vita owners get to look forward to in 2013. Thanks to the folks at the PlayStation Blog, we now know the third-person arcade shooter developed by Sandlot is coming out on January 8th on the PlayStation Vita in North America for $39.99 on the PSN. An interesting point to note is that the assistant producer, Miki Takahashi, did not mention a retail version of the game. While in an earlier post on the PlayStation Blog, Miki showed off the box art for EDF 2017 Portable.
The game originally debuted on the PS3 in 2007, the revamped Vita version of EDF includes the same arcade gameplay but boasts a number of new additions as well:
- Online Co-op & Versus Multiplayer Modes
- 7 New Missions
- More Than 230 Weapons
- New Types of Enemies
- Pale Wing, APlayable Female Character Equipped with a Jet Pack, Rapier and Laser Rifle
