Man vs. Giant Bug

Once again, aliens are attempting to take over the planet and obliterate mankind in the upcoming video game, Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon, a follow-up to 2007’s Earth Defense Force 2017. It seems that this time around, the invaders may have drawn some inspiration from the 1960’s Mars Attacks! trading cards; specifically, where the Martians dramatically enlarge Earth insects then unleash hordes of them onto the helpless population.

In Insect Armageddon, the players will take the role of armored troopers that battle colossal ants, spiders and hornets, as well as giant robots. Don’t take my word for it- check out the trailer:

It seems that the human forces have access to robot vehicles in some missions as evidenced by the two-legged mech that briefly appears in one shot; a logical strategy, considering that robots are the most effective weapon against giant monsters. It’s a scientific fact.
