They don’t always need to be thoughtful big-budget blockbusters. As Sandlot’s Earth Defense Force series has proven multiple times over the past decade, sometimes all we need is some mindless fun, and a heaping helping just landed on the PlayStation 4.
The next Earth Defense Force game, another in the line of giant bug-killing shoot 'em ups, is being made by an American team, not original developer Sandlot. Maybe it's the best thing to ever happen to Earth Defense Force...
Sandlot's lovable Earth Defense Force series will live to see another massive invasion. Publisher D3 has cryptically and modestly revealed the next entry in the giant bug and 'bot shooter, Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon.
Zangeki no REGINLEIV, the upcoming Wii action game from Japanese studio Sandlot, will be out on February 11. The game has been development for years.
Nintendo is letting another game that isn't New Super Mario Bros. Wii break the tradition of white Wii game cases, giving Sandlot's Zangeki no REGINLEIV a chance to stand out from its peers with a sharp looking black box.
Nintendo isn't normally in the business of publishing bloody, violent M-rated—or, in Japan's case, CERO D rated—games for its hardware. In fact, Zangeki No Reginleiv will likely be the first Wii game to carry such a high rating.
