Square Enix May Be Developing A New Front Mission Game
Square Enix is actually starting to look better these days, guys.
Square Enix may be reviving yet another popular series from its catalog, as it appears as though they are currently in the midst of developing a new Front Mission game. According to Siliconera, the game is being developed by Square Enix Japan along with former Armored Core producer Toshifumi Nabeshima. Nabeshima previously worked with From Software, where he created Chromehounds for Sega and Armored Core V.
That experience may yet come in handy- while Front Mission started out as a science fiction saga, the newest entries saw it veer more and more into the kind of mech action that defined Chromehounds and Armored Core. Whether or not that experience translates properly into delivering a proper Front Mission game to fans remains to be seen.
As of right now, nothing more is known about this title. While it is tempting to think that it may be unveiled at E3, the best bet is probably TGS later this year. Stay tuned for more coverage.
