Earth Defense Force 4.1 hits Japan in February

New screenshots of the Walking Fortress Baram A-Type and Erginus.

Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair will launch for PlayStation 4 in Japan in February 2015, a new Famitsu.com preview reveals.

The website also has new screenshots of the “Walking Fortress Baram A-Type,” a 50 meter-tall humanoid robot players can operate called to action when the monster Erginus invades. Erginus is an unknown beast from the deep sea, who most think the “foreigners” that attacked Earth brought from outer space.
