Mecha gamers excited for Front Mission 2: Remake will have to wait a bit longer. Forever Entertainment has announced that the game has been delayed to a later date in 2023.
Originally set for a June 2023 launch, the Front Mission 2: Remake has been delayed to a later 2023 date. The game has been delayed to allow more time to polish it and to ensure gamers have the best experience possible.
At the moment, no new launch date has been set. Forever Entertainment is aiming for a Q3 2023 launch window (that is between July 1st to September 30th). One could also speculate that it could be launched during the mid-Fall 2023 season.
More information about the game will become available in the future.
Front Mission 2: Remake is set during the events of the Second Alordesh Coup. Set 12 years after the event of the first game, the People’s Republic of Alordesh wants to break away from the Oceania Cooperative Union (OCU). When a second coup is launched by elements of the military, OCU forces are deployed to restore order.
Front Mission is a turn-based mecha JRPG that often follows conflicts between regional unions and economic blocs. The series is known for its rich storytelling along with its RPG gameplay. Players take command of a squad of wanzers (“walking tanks”) who they must command in battle.
The first two games were only released in Japan for the PlayStation. Front Mission 3 was the first title in the series to be released outside of Japan.
