Aksys Games made a major announcement today for North American PlayStation fans. Metropolis Defenders will be localized to the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and PlayStation 4 as Aegis of Earth:Protonovus Assault. It is a strategy game where the focus relies upon building up your defenses against enemies and not an aggressive and offensive campaign. North America got the better end of the bargain as we are getting a PlayStation 4 version of the game. It originally was only released in Japan for the PlayStation 3 and Playstation Vita.
