Between the extended trailer shown for Earth Defense Force 4 and the announcement of Earth Defense Force 3 Portable coming to North America, it has been a good day for EDF fans! D3 Publisher announced on their Facebook page a few hours ago that Earth Defense Force 3 Portable is coming to North America under the title Earth Defense Force 2017. The game was actually a port of a XBOX360 game with the title Earth Defense Force 2017, but was changed to Earth Defense Force 3 Portable when ported to the Playstation Vita.
That port saw a release in Japan today actually, so it is quite interesting to see news of localization on the same day it releases overseas! A release date hasn’t been stated yet, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted, so check back later for additional details.
