Front Mission 1st: Remake is arriving in November, but fans can also look forward to what’s on the schedule for after that. Forever Entertainment updated the official website for its remake projects with a new section for Front Mission 2: Remake. The update doesn’t include a more detailed release window, but it does include some new screenshots that show off the difference between the two upcoming games. It also has a section for Front Mission 3: Remake, which was confirmed at the 2022 Tokyo Game Show, though it doesn’t have any content as of yet.
Check out the screenshots in the gallery. They’re also visible on the Front Mission 2: Remake Nintendo eShop page.
The screenshots show off battle and tactical map screens from the game. Despite both being developed by Forever Entertainment, Front Mission 1st: Remake and Front Mission 2: Remake show off some notable differences. The second game’s tactical maps have a more pronounced 3D effect, and the garage screen seen in the TGS 2022 trailer is also presented in a different style from Front Mission 1st‘s. The style of the character art is also somewhat different. Characters from the Front Mission 2 story like Thomas Norland and Lisa Stanley are visible in the screens and trailer.
This remake will be the first time Front Mission 2 has received an official release outside Japan. The story takes place 12 years after Front Mission 1st and is set in the fictional nation of Alordesh. A member of the Oceania Cooperative Union (a major geopolitical power bloc comprising Australia, New Zealand, and countries in Southeast, East, and South Asia), the Alordeshi military launches a coup against the OCU-led government in an attempt to declare independence. The story follows three OCU-affiliated officers as they try to survive the coup and investigate some of the forces hidden behind the scenes.
Front Mission 2: Remake is due for release in 2023 on the Nintendo Switch.
