Earth Defense Force 5 Getting Physical Release In The West

PQube have announced they’ll be bringing a physical version of Earth Defense Force 5 to the west soon.

The popular arcade shooter has already had its fifth incarnation release digitally only, but now we’re finally going to be able to get our hands on a physical version of Earth Defense Force 5 on PS4 in Europe and North America – which is due out on September 18.

Along with the news, PQube also released a trailer:

A description, via PQube:


  • The Invasion has Begun! – Japan, 2022. An immense fleet of starships have laid siege to an EDF base located in the rough city outskirts in the Kanto region.
  • Even More Realistic Battles – Watch as enemy armour disintegrates and shelter from disgusting fluids as they spill across the battlefield. EDF 5 brings you even closer to the action!
  • More Weapons Than Ever – Choose from over 1000 guns, rocket launchers, grenades, lasers and more!
  • Take on “Inferno Mode” – Battle hard and unlock the epic “inferno mode” to experience the ultimate test against hordes and hordes of assailants!
  • The Series’ First Humanoid Aliens – Battling against these intelligent foes will send you to the depths of despair, but victories will take you to the highest of highs!
  • Four Powered Up Classes – Choose between Ranger, Wing Diver, Air Raider and Fencer classes. You can switch between each class before every mission.
  • Battle Together with Friends – All missions support online co-op of up to 4 players, as well as local split-screen.

The game is currently up for pre-order on VideoGamesPlus and Amazon UK (It looks like Amazon may be taking a little longer to open pre-orders).

The announcement comes pretty quickly after the reveal of Earth Defense Force 6 and a voxel spin-off, so now’s a great time to catch up.
