Alongside the reveal of Earth Defense Force 6 before, D3 Publisher previously announced a brand new Earth Defense Force experience for Nintendo Switch and PS4 in the form of Earth Defense Force: World Brothers. Since then, Earth Defense Force: World Brothers has been confirmed for PC release on the same day as the console versions. Earth Defense Force: World Brothers is set in a voxel-styled world bringing the Earth Defense Force gameplay to a new visual style. Today, Earth Defense Force: World Brothers has finally released in the West on PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC alongside DLC in the form of additional characters including characters from OneeChanbara, Earth Defense Force 5, Iron Rain, and more. Watch the Earth Defense Force: World Brothers launch trailer below:
