imageAs a promotion for Front Mission Evolved, Square Enix Europe is re-releasing Front Mission 3.


“With the forthcoming release of Front Mission Evolved, the Front Mission series is back with a bang. Before the evolution of the series, we think it’s the perfect time to revisit a previous classic installment with Front Mission 3. We’re very pleased to be able to bring this compelling title to the PlayStation Network,” said Larry Sparks, Vice President of Brands at Square Enix Europe.


The PsOne game will be available on the PlayStation Store in PAL territories. A release date and pricing information were not announced. So far, like Vagrant Story, this news is just for Europe.

    Never really played these games, but now might be a good time to start.

    I’m not any good at this genre, and I generally have no interest in robots big or small, but, somehow, Front Mission 3 worked for me. I played about 5 hours before giving it back to a friend (back when it released), and I was really impressed with it in that short time period.

  • Damnit,this game is awesome,want it,i’m devastated that only Europe will got it :/

  • Code

    rar, best game in the series, seriously anyone here who hasn’t played it, I can’t recommend this game enough! I remember finding this in a liquidation from a store closing for $15 (at release), where everywhere else had it for $59+ It was one of those gems that made the PS1 so special, I remember playing it all summer >w<'

    This is my only double dipped import. Which only begs the question to me why Square’s going the FPS route with the franchise. This would be killer as a STG with multiplayer.

    • Hraesvelgr

      It’s not first-person.

      • godmars

        No, but Evolved is. 3rd person.

        Hoping that multiplayer is something close to Warhawk at least.

        • Guest

          3rd person is not 1st person. That would be like saying Uncharted is like Call of Duty.

          An example of a 1st person action mech game would be Gundam: MS Sensen 0079 for Wii and Gundam Side Story 0079: Rise from the Ashes for the Dreamcast.
          3rd person action mech would be like Armored Core series or Gundam Musou series.
          And example of a RTS mech game would be Super Robot Wars Scramble Commander 2nd.

          Still…U.S./EU got shafted on Front Mission 5 (unless you got crafty and found the fan translation patch)

          There really is little to no hope for the new Front Mission to be a good game. I would be surprised if it turned out even decent, though that would not change the fact that I don’t want it because its simply too much of a change (imo) for the series. Especially since the reaosns for doing so are so shallow.

  • Exand

    Europe? What about NA :o

  • thebanditking

    Umm Squeenix what about NA? By the way we are still waiting for Vagrant Story too..
