EDF2017 is still the third-person shooter many fans have come to love, now with added features as it arrives on the Vita this winter. These new features include online co-op, PvP online modes, a new character in Pale Wing and an enormous assortment of over 150 weapons.
Players may gather up to three other friends and play 4-player co-op through the campaign of the game, while chatting to each other through their Vitas and coordinating strategies and equipment choices. As Miki Takahashi, Assistant Producer said about the online play,
“Every player can select their weapons, so the key to effective teamwork is to take advantage of each soldier’s attributes. There are also many new weapons that specialize in cooperative gameplay, including tools that assist and revive your fallen allies. You can chat with your friends in multiplayer, so it’s key to keep in contact and make a tactical battle plan.”
A price or exact date for Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable (try it, say it three times fast) is yet to be announced.
