Front Mission 1st: Remake coming to Nintendo Switch this Summer

The February 2022 Nintendo Direct has revealed that Square Enix and Forever Entertainment will release new remakes of the first two Front Mission games for Nintendo Switch.

The Front Mission 1st remake will be available in Summer 2022, while Front Mission 2 will follow later on an unspecified date. Both remakes of the mecha strategy RPG titles are being developed externally and will be published by Forever Entertainment SA.

The announcement also showed a sneak peek of the first game's remake. While the game will generally reproduce the isometric viewpoints from the classic platforms (SNES, PS1, NDS), the remake will turn all environments to 3D with a rotatable camera. The player can also target a specific body part of a Wanzer, at which point the camera shows a frontal close-up of the enemy mech.

An announcement trailer, press release, and screenshot set can be found below, via Forever Entertainment. The Nintendo page is here, and the official website is here.
