DotEmu, which recently published the Irem Arcade Hits PC collection and iOS port of Jaleco's Avenging Spirit, is releasing another fondly remembered '90s title, arcade shooter Earth Defense Force (or Super Earth Defense Force, as it was called when it came out on the SNES), to iOS devices. 

The horizontal shoot'em up from Jaleco has players defending the Earth in the year 20XX against the invading Azyma Empire, piloting an XA-1 fighter craft with selectable weapons. This iPhone edition adds autofiring and an up/down strip on the let side for moving your ship with touchscreen controls.

DotEmu says its Earth Defense Force port should release soon. It also teases that there's a clue about the next game it will release to iOS on its Jaleco Series web page -- let us know if you find it!
