Back in March 2023, Forever Entertainment announced a June 2023 Front Mission 2: Remake release date, but the Nintendo Switch game is now delayed. It cited concerns about the quality and a desire to put more work into the title as the reason for the decision. It also noted while there is no new release date yet, the strategy game could still show up in Q3 2023.
Here is the full statement issued by Forever Entertainment regarding its decision to delay Front Mission 2: Remake:
As the premiere date for Front Mission 2: Remake approaches, we have made the decision to postpone the release of the game on Nintendo Switch. This decision was not taken lightly, but in collaboration with the development team, we want to ensure that we have sufficient time to add as many functionalities as possible while proceeding with proper implementation and tests, in order to meet your expectations for a modern-day remake.
We understand the anticipation surrounding Front Mission 2: Remake and the excitement you have shown throughout its development. Please rest assured that we are fully committed to delivering a polished and faithful remake of your beloved franchise.
While we are currently unable to provide a specific revised premiere date, we assure you that we are working tirelessly to complete the project as soon as possible, with the aim of releasing the game in the third quarter of this year.
Please stay updated on any development news by following our channels, including our social media profiles and Discord server.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
Ahead of this decision, Forever Entertainment did show the game off. For example, new screenshots appeared back in October 2022. It is the second of three titles. The first remake already appeared. It is working on one of the third game as well.
Front Mission 2: Remake is in development for the Nintendo Switch, and it has a tentative Q3 2023 release window after being delayed.
