Earth Defense Force 2: Invaders From Planet Space on PlayStation Vita isn’t the only EDF game you can look forward to this year, as XSEED Games announced that Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair is coming to North America on PlayStation 4 in Fall 2015.

Here’s what XSEED had to say about Earth Defense Force 4.1, which is billed as a complete re-imagining of EDF 2025:

Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair (PS4) – Fall 2015

The wild sci-fi action of the Earth Defense Force series comes to the PS4 system for the first time in this complete reimagining of Earth Defense Force 2025, now with silky smooth frame-rates, beefed-up graphics, and over 50% new content. After selecting from one of four unique playable classes and customizing their weapons, players will lead NPC troops into city-wide battles against hordes of seemingly endless giant bugs, robots, and other colossal enemies. Two players can enjoy local co-op and versus modes, while online co-op supports up to four players to increase the odds against this massive alien threat.

The Shadow of New Despair will be at XSEED’s E3 booth (West Hall, Booth #5212).
