Earth Defense Force: World Brothers, the latest title in the save-the-world-from-giant-bugs series, is coming to the West on Nintendo Switch and PS4 early next year, GameSpot can exclusively reveal. It features a voxel art style that’s a big departure from the series’ usual bleak and foreboding visuals.
D3 Publisher, which co-develops and publishes the series with Sandlot, XSEED Games, and several other studios, said that the change in style is meant to help their developers create a “fun and casual EDF to enjoy while [fans] wait for the next series title.” You can check out a new trailer below.
“We will continue to do our best to make this series constantly evolve for players,” said Earth Defense Force: World Brothers producer Nobuyuki Okajima. “However, doing so gives our dev teams tremendous pressure, leading us to longer development cycles for each title.”
