Front Mission 2: Remake launches for Nintendo Switch on June 12
Forever Entertainment has confirmed the release date for Front Mission 2: Remake. The remake of the Japan-exclusive 1997 PlayStation game will be available for Nintendo Switch digitally worldwide on June 12.
The studio first revealed the remake of the series' second mainline entry in the September 2022 Nintendo Direct. At that time, they only listed 2023 as its release window. With the release date confirmed on June 12, it should come right around the middle of the year.
