Front Mission 3 Scrambles To PS3 And PSP

image With the addition of Front Mission 3 to Japan’s PlayStation Archives all of Square Enix’s PsOne Front Mission games are in one place. Each one costs 600 yen ($6). Front Mission 3 was the only one that got released internationally. Since it’s a downloadable game now I wouldn’t expect a remake of it anytime soon, but it would be nice if Square Enix gave it a second chance on the domestic PlayStation Store.


Other games this week include mecha strategy RPG Assault Suits Valken 2 and gals fighter Advance Variable Geo. This week’s obscure game is Carnage Heart EZ, a tweaked version of Carnage Heart which SCEA picked up for North America. Carnage Heart is a robot fighting game, but you can’t directly control your robot. Before battle players design and program Overkill Engines by setting chips on a game board. Huh, three out of four games are mecha titles. Sony should have deemed this giant robot week in Japan.


Here’s this weeks list:

Advance Variable Geo

Assault Suits Valken 2

Carnage Heart EZ

Front Mission 3

    Very strange. I’d read that Front Mission 3 was an oddity in that no version of POPs (the homebrew PSX game loader) could run it on PSP. I’m wondering then if that means the latest native version supports it now. O.o

    “Front Mission 3 was the only one that got released internationally.”

    I guess someone forgot about Front Mission 4.

    • Nope! This article is about PsOne Front Mission games that got re-released on Japan’s PlayStation Archives. Front Mission 4 is for the PS2.
