During the February 2022 Nintendo Direct, remakes of the first two main Front Mission games were announced. You can check out the announcement trailer below.
Nintendo’s website describes 1st: Remake as follows:
In the year 2090, the world’s conflicts are fought using giant war machines called Wanzers. Huffman Island, the only place where the Oceania Cooperative Union (O.C.U.) and the Unified Continental States (U.C.S.) share a land border is a hotbed of conflict.
An O.C.U. reconnaissance platoon led by Captain Royd Clive is assigned to investigate a U.C.S. munitions plant. They are ambushed by U.C.S. Wanzers, triggering a series of events that plunges the whole island into war. Royd’s fiancée, Lieutenant Karen Meure, goes missing in action.
Discharged from the military, Royd sets out to investigate what happened to Karen. His quest leads him closer and closer to the conspiracy behind the incident and the powers that orchestrated it.
With dozens of characters to meet, its mature story, and non-Manichean protagonists, Front Mission is the classic of a tactical Japanese RPG genre, finally available worldwide.
FRONT MISSION 1st: Remake launches in Summer 2022 for Nintendo Switch. FRONT MISSION 2: Remake will launch sometime in the future. This is the first time the second game will be available outside of Japan.
