The Front Mission games have traditionally been SRPG titles. However, the upcoming Front Mission Evolved is all action, and Square Enix has announced the release date.
WHAT: Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of Square Enix® interactive entertainment products in North America, announced today that the North American launch date for FRONT MISSION EVOLVED™ has been updated to September 28, 2010. Developed in collaboration by Double Helix Games™ and Square Enix, the riveting third-person shooter will be available on PlayStation® 3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and in stereoscopic 3D for Windows® PC.
Pre-order FRONT MISSION EVOLVED today to receive two exclusive, classic Front Mission® wanzers. The pre-order items are only available through Amazon®, Best Buy® and GameStop®.
- Calm: A wanzer that has long been a part of the FRONT MISSION series. Although its appearance is far from intimidating, this war machine is unmatched in melee combat as well as long-range firefights when equipped with the appropriate weapons.
- Rexon: As in previous FRONT MISSION titles, Rexon is a skilled sniper-type wanzer. Once equipped with a rifle, it becomes a threat to anything that crosses its line of fire.
FRONT MISSION EVOLVED empowers players with the experience of piloting and customizing massive armored units called wanzers while engaging in high-intensity battles driven by a compelling story. Both Square Enix and Double Helix Games are committed to delivering the ultimate FRONT MISSION experience and on September 28, FRONT MISSION EVOLVED will embed players in heart-pounding, large-scale action unlike anything they’ve ever seen before.
WHEN/WHERE: FRONT MISSION EVOLVED will be available at North American retailers beginning September 28, 2010 for the suggested retail price of $59.99 for the PlayStation 3 system and Xbox 360, and $49.99 for Windows PC.
