Get tactical on Switch this October with the exclusive Front Mission 2: Remake

Massive mechs and strategic action are set to drop onto the Nintendo Switch this fall with Front Mission 2: Remake.

In front

Notable for a few reasons, is the just-announced Front Mission 2: Remake for the Nintendo Switch. For one thing, it’s Front Mission, and continues the epic mech-saga from the original title that debuted last year. So expect more classic, turn-based strategy action, all of which is highlighted by a mature story. Now add the “Remake” tag to that, which brings a host of improvements and modernizations to the 1997 PlayStation original.

And finally, take into account that this is the first time that FM2 will be available outside of Japan. As hard to believe as it might be, the sequel never made it Stateside, so this re-debut is actually kind of just a debut in general.

12 years have passed since the second Huffman conflict. The impoverished People’s Republic of
Alordesh has been suffering a severe economic decline ever since the war ended. In June 2102,
soldiers of the Alordesh Army rise up and, led by Ven Mackarge, declare independence from the
O.C.U. (Oceania Cooperative Union).

Ash, an O.C.U. soldier, manages to survive the ensuing battle, but Alordesh is completely overrun by
the Revolutionary Army. Ash and his surviving teammates infiltrate Alordesh’s chaotic underground in
an attempt to escape the country. However, they soon discover that there is a huge conspiracy
behind the coup.

Forever Entertainment press release

Players will switch between 3 main characters in Front Mission 2: Remake, with Ash, Lisa, and Thomas all working to create a more complete worldview, according to the publisher. If you want a multi-layered story with plenty of ‘gray’, this might be it.

You won’t have long to wait to play Front Mission 2: Remake and find out, as the title is now scheduled to arrive exclusively on the Nintendo Switch this October the 5th (2023).
