Front Mission is getting a revival thanks to new remakes of the first two games in the franchise for the Nintendo Switch. Front Mission 1st: Remake and Front Mission 2: Remake were announced earlier today during this month’s Nintendo Direct.
Check out the announcement trailer for the Front Mission Switch remakes below:
Front Mission 1st: Remake will release in summer 2022, whereas Front Mission 2: Remake will be available later in the future.
According to a press release from Forever Entertainment, the studio that’s developing the remakes:
“A full remake of the first FRONT MISSION game is storming onto Nintendo Switch! In this tactical RPG, you’ll pilot weaponized machines called Wanzers and lead your battalion to victory. Gain the upper hand in battle by aiming for enemy parts to destroy and uncover the great storyline of this classic game. Prepare for battle when FRONT MISSION 1st: Remake launches on Nintendo Switch this summer. The sequel FRONT MISSION 2: Remake will also launch on Nintendo Switch in the future.”
Originally released back in 1995 for the SNES, the first Front Mission game was only available in Japan, before a Nintendo DS port in 2007 was available in the West. Front Mission 2 never had an official English release.
