Block versions of characters from every previous EDF release, from EDF1 ("Monster Attack") to "Earth Defense Force 5," and even the EDF spinoff releases, appear in the game. Also featured are a wide range of weapons and vehicles from past EDF releases. Series veterans will enjoy seeing these familiar characters and weapons, while those new to the series have the opportunity to be introduced to its rich history for the first time.

-Familiar Enemies
Enemies that invaded the Earth before make an appearance in this game, this time in block form.

-Online Co-Op
This game supports up to 4-player online co-op, with each player joining the battle using their own team.

In a parallel world where the Earth is made of blocks, evil has befallen the otherwise peaceful planet.

Led by Dark Tyrant, several Motherships suddenly attacked the planet, shattering the Earth into pieces.

The Earth has been attacked by the Invaders, Ravagers, and Aggressors before...but the brave EDF soldiers have always joined together to defend the planet from these threats.

With the Earth shattered, EDF soldiers continue fighting on each of their pieces of the planet. But with no way to reach each other to deliver aid or food supplies, the planet remains in despair.

You must assume the role of Commander of the EDF and fight back. Find the EDF soldiers fighting around the planet, and begin a counteroffensive. Only a powerful team assembled by you can save our square Earth.
