First in-game screenshot released to celebrate the New Year.
While Square Enix returns to the Front Mission universe in Left Alive (releasing in March worldwide), the original team behind the tactical mech combat title on SNES has something else coming. Publisher Kadokawa Games announced on Twitter that Project Stella, a spiritual successor to Front Mission, will be out this year. A more concrete release date wasn’t provided.
Though it’s a spin-off of a Kadokawa mobile title (Starly Girls: Episode Starsia), Project Stella is a proper strategy RPG. While the publisher didn’t share more information on the consoles it would be releasing for, it wouldn’t be remiss to expect a PS4 release. Even a Steam launch seems reasonable enough, but we’ll have to wait for more confirmation.
Also, it seems Kadokawa president Yoshimi Yasuda is overseeing Project Stella. If the screenshot released on Twitter, the game’s first thus far, is any indication, then a more Front Mission-style strategy mech experience is on the cards. Stay tuned for more information in the coming months.
