Front Mission 2: Remake takes place 12 years after the events of the first game. The People’s Republic of Aldoresh has been destabilized by a military coup. Now protagonists Ash, Lisa and Thomas must attempt to escape the country, but will soon uncover a shadowy conspiracy behind the uprising. The three-way perspective will help the story convey “a worldview that goes beyond a simple dichotomy between good and evil.”
Front Mission 2: Remake will release on June 12, 2023 for the Nintendo Switch. Front Mission 1st: Remake is immediately available from the Nintendo eShop.
