D3 Publisher and Namco Bandai have announced that Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable will release in North America on January 8, 2013 and January 16, 2013 in Europe. The Playstation Vita port of the 360 title will feature a new soldier class known as ‘Pale Wing’, new enemies, seven additional levels, and even more. I would be a little wary though… Apparently they didn’t even bother to fix the framerate issues which played the original version, so it’s basically a direct port that looks a little nicer.
They’re also expecting you to pay $40 for it and it’s going to be a digital download release only in North America. So, just be aware of the problems with the port before deciding to purchase it. Other than that, have fun killing bugs!
