Publisher Forever Entertainment and developer MegaPixel Studio have announced the FRONT MISSION 2: Remake is delayed indefinitely.
The highly-anticipated remake will forgo its previously planned June release date for an unannounced date sometime in the future.
Reasoning behind the delay was revealed to ensure the remake is polished and as faithful to the source as possible, while adding as many gameplay mechanics as possible.
Here’s a rundown on the previously announced remake:
FRONT MISSION 2: Remake
FRONT MISSION 2 blends intense strategy with a deep and involved storyline.
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.
In FRONT MISSION 2, the perspective switches between three characters: Ash, Lisa, and Thomas, creating a worldview that goes beyond a simple dichotomy between good and evil.
FRONT MISSION 2: Remake preserves the mature story, strategic turn-based combat, and Wanzer customization options of the original. Enjoy the revitalized classic with updated visuals and new features and enhancements!
