Japanese gaming mag Famitsu is reporting that Earth Defense Force 4 will be seeing a 2013 release in Japan on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and will feature "online play for a large number of people". Whether this means large multiplayer maps supporting 32 or 64 players or a MMO-level multiplayer remains to be seen.
The magazine also stated that the Xbox 360 version will be hitting Western shores, which begs the question of whether Western PS3's will get a copy.
