Earth Defense Force 4 has 4-player co-op
A few more details on Earth Defense Force 4 have surfaced courtesy of this week’s Famitsu magazine. The game will support 1-4 players and will be the first numbered entry in the game to have actual online co-op. The producer is D3P’s Nobuyuki Okajima, with Sandlot returning as the developer. The game is current 55% complete.
One of the new design aesthetics for EDF4 appears to be armor designs. Both the Soldier and Pale Wing character from the original games have gotten a face lift as more aggressive armored variants – The Ranger and Wing Diver. Even the giant monsters featured in the series are getting armor-plating forms, a sign that perhaps defense is the best offense after all!
