D3 Publisher has revealed the Japanese box art and first-print bonuses for the upcoming release of Earth Defense Force V2.

This enhanced release of Earth Defense Force 2 will include higher quality graphics, the new “Air Raider” class introduced in Earth Defense Force 2025, the option to play any single player mission co-op, a four-player online multiplayer mode and over four hundred different weapons.

It’ll be available in four different pieces of box art over the two available versions;

The Standard Version – 5,200 yen (~$47.80 US)

EDF2PV2_Cover_0924

First print copies of this version include the land soldier-exclusive weapon DLC for Sting Shot – a shotgun with high penetrating power, able to strike multiple enemies with one shot.

The Double Pack – 6,980 yen (~$64.05 US)

EDF2PV2_BOX_0918

 The Double Pack includes two copies of Earth Defense Force V2, each with its own box art and first print bonuses.

The first copy features a first print bonus DLC called the Spark Lancer, a Pale Wing-exclusive  laser lance good for electrocuting enemies at close range. The second copy features the 88mm Support Cannon, an Air Rider-exclusive feature which allows you to call supporting bombardment fire from an 88mm cannon in the sky. The cannon can even be fired multiple times at the discretion of an Air Raider unit, making it possible to attack more than once with minimal repercussions to Merit Points.

All these first print bonuses can be yours (along with the pretty box-art) if you grab a copy of Earth Defense Force V2 when it releases November 27th in Japan.
