D3 Publisher is bringing Earth Defense Force 4 to North America for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2013 as Earth Defense Force 2025, it has announced. Namco Bandai Games will localize the title for Europe.

The series’ alien insect enemies return in the Sandlot-developed sequel, and attempt to put an end to human life with what the publisher describes as “over-the-top action” and “massive city-leveling explosions.”

The game will offer “tons of missions,” four-person multiplayer, and more. Players will be able to choose their soldier class and equip them with more weapons than ever before.

New screenshots from Japan were released earlier this morning. View them here.
