That certainly didn’t take long at all now did it? A little over two months after it was announced that Earth Defense Force 3 Portable would be heading to the West under its new name Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable and today it was revealed that the game will be available for purchase on January 8th in North America and January 16th in Europe.
Now unfortunately, the title will no longer be receiving a physical release as once thought. Instead the game will be available only as a digital download for $39.99. Now while this is unfortunate for fans who enjoy physical versions of their games, it is still great to know that the game is at least coming out in the West. Check out some new screenshots below and keep an eye out for the game on the PlayStation Store on January 8th.
