An Alternate Way To Get Front Mission Alternative

By Spencer . October 29, 2008 . 8:29am

Square Enix continues to add their PsOne games to the PlayStation Store with the release of Front Mission Alternative for a mere 600 yen ($6). The “alternative” part refers to absence of grid based strategy RPG combat. In Front Mission Alternative you plot a course and watch the Wanzers blast their way towards a target. […]

Farewell Front Mission Online

By Spencer . February 28, 2008 . 11:42am

One of the disappointing occurrences from this console cycle change is seeing online enabled games shutting down forever. It happened to Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence, Resident Evil: Outbreak and the Gamecube version of Phantasy Star Online. At least all of those have offline modes. Front Mission Online not so much.   The PlayOnline enabled […]

Front Mission 2089 dramatized for the Nintendo DS

By Spencer . February 4, 2008 . 5:55am

It’s no secret Front Mission 2089: Border of Madness originated as a cell phone game. Since Square Enix already has a Front Mission engine running on the Nintendo DS they could lazily port the ketai game data over and call it a day. However, the development team is making changes to Front Mission 2089 other […]

Front Mission fine tuned for the DS

By Louise . November 1, 2007 . 12:48pm

Think of a well known SRPG, like Final Fantasy Tactics.  Now replace all those units with mechs called wanzers.  Replace magic attacks with long range missiles. Replace melees with short range rifles and punches.  Put in an HP bar for your wanzer's body, arms, and legs.  Replace the epic story of kingdoms fighting each other […]

Front Mission 2089: Border of Madness, teaser edition

By Spencer . October 3, 2007 . 12:03pm

Square-Enix didn’t spend a lot of time promoting Front Mission 2089: Border of Madness at Tokyo Game Show. Unfortunately, this teaser trailer doesn’t shine much light on the project either. It gives an introduction of the story with English voice acting and showcases concept art from the project. Some of the art looks new too […]

Currently in development is Front Mission 2089: Border of Madness and it’s also coming out for the Nintendo DS. Nothing has been really announced about the game, but I wouldn’t be surprised […]

Front Mission 1st is coming to North America?

By Spencer . June 7, 2007 . 9:37am

LegaiaRules sends us word with more evidence that Front Mission 1st is coming to North America. The official Front Mission Blog posted an English screenshot of Front Mission 1st that uses a different font than the Japanese game. Also Gamestop is starting to take pre-orders for the title. Square-Enix USA has yet to announce the […]

Rumor Control: Front Mission 1st not entirely in English

By Spencer . May 28, 2007 . 9:46pm

Thanks for the tip IceAmp about Front Mission 1st being packaged with an English language option, but it is only partially true. Yeah, Front Mission 1st has English menus and status screens. However, the story is entirely in Japanese. (See the picture on the right?) I don’t want to burst anyone’s bubble, but I also […]

Front Mission Mobile!

By Rolando . April 25, 2007 . 5:43pm

Why is it that Japan gets pretty good mobile games?   Famitsu reports Square-Enix’s official announcement of Front Mission Mobile titled Front Mission 2089-II. Details are pretty scarce as to what the game’s story is about; but if I had to take a guess, I’d assume its a gaiden to Front Mission 1st as evidenced […]

Front Mission 1st and the semi state of localization

By Spencer . March 16, 2007 . 4:15pm

  Later this month Square-Enix is releasing Front Mission 1st, a remake of the SNES game with touch screen control and a tie in with one of the characters from Front Mission 5: The Scars of War. Usually import RPGs are text heavy with katakana or kanji menus to wade through, but not Front Mission […]
