so, after the disappointment that was Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon (save for the Inferno ending), they've gone ahead and announced Earth Defense Force 4 for them Japanese folk for PS3 and 360 with online co-op. it's by Sandlot, the dudes who made EDF2017, and pretty much every other EDF game except EDF:IA. thank god for that.
anyway. i'm crossing my fingers that this game comes to North America because i absolutely adored EDF2017 and EDF:IA was fun for a bit before i realized how boring it actually was.
edit: oops. it looks like this was announced a year ago and it's only being detailed now. nice going, me. well.. there ya go! online co-op. could somebody also attach this to the EDF4 page please?
