Today, during its latest Nintendo Direct broadcast, the house of Mario and Zelda announced Front Mission 1st.
This is a full remake of the original Front Mission coming in 2022. It’s developed by Forever Entertainment and it’s likely one of the Square Enix franchises teased by the developers a few months ago, and we totally called it.
On top of that, Front Mission 2 will also come at a later time.
You can check out the announcement trailer below.
Here are the details provided by the developer:
- Front Mission comes back as a remake
- The game features a modern mode with improved controls
- The legendary soundtrack fully orchestrated
“In the year 2090, the world’s conflicts are fought using giant war machines called Wanzers. Huffman Island, the only place where the Oceania Cooperative Union (O.C.U.) and the Unified Continental States (U.C.S.) share a land border is a hotbed of conflict. With dozens of characters to meet, its mature story, and non-Manichean protagonists, Front Mission is the classic tactical Japanese RPG, finally available worldwide.”
If you’re unfamiliar with Front Mission, it’s a classic tactical JRPG franchise that debuted in Japan in 1995 on Super Famicom.
Recently, Square Enix tried to bring it back with Left Alive, which is set in the same universe, but it certainly wasn’t what the fans wanted. Now, we’re finally getting the real thing.
