What is Front Mission 1st: Remake?

Front Mission is a tactical RPG that originally came out in 1995 in Japan for the Super Famicom. The first version to make its way to the West was a port that hit the Nintendo DS in 2007. This new version for Nintendo Switch is the first big remake of the game, with much nicer graphics designed for big, pixel-dense screens and a modern control scheme for added quality-of-life.

Front Mission takes place in the year 2090. Two warring nations, the Oceania Cooperative Union and the Unified Continental States, share an island border that’s ground zero for the conflict. That’s where you come in. You play as a discharged officer on a mission to find out what happened to his missing fiancé, who’s also in the military. As you do, you lead teams of giant war mechs called Wanzers, laying destruction to your enemies if you plan your battles carefully.
