Front Mission remakeSqaure-Enix

A Front Mission remake was confirmed during the 2022 Q1 Nintendo Direct. Here’s everything we know about the remake of Front Mission and its sequel.

A remake of Front Mission is long overdue, the original appeared on the Super Famicom in 1995 before being ported to the PS1 in 2003 and the Nintendo DS in 2007.

A series of sequels followed on subsequent platforms after the game became a cult hit. The problem with Front Mission is it arrived late in the PS1’s life, meaning it wasn’t played by as many people as it should have been.

Front Mission 2 wasn’t released on PS1 outside of Japan, meaning fans in the west had to go out of their way to play a copy of the game. Fortunately, Nintendo has confirmed a remake of Front Mission and Front Mission 2, with both heading our way. The remake will be called Front Mission 1st: Remake. They also released a short teaser trailer showing off some footage.

Like many of Square Enix’s games, Front Mission was a tactical RPG in which players take control of powerful mechs known as Wanzers. We expect the remake will continue this theme, updating the gameplay for modern systems.
