▍About Front Mission 2: Remake
This game is a remake of the PlayStation classic released by Square in 1997, taking place 12 years after the original game’s events, and follows three characters Ash, Lina, and Thomas. The three initially try to escape the country of Bangladesh after a military coup overwhelms the OCU forces, until their mission changes to extracting POWs.
The game is a tactical RPG where players command pilots operating giant mechs called “Wanzers”, going through different levels from a world map. Each point on the map represents war zones and towns, where players can fight or organize and set up their units for the next encounter.
The remake features a number of improvements, including better load times, support for several languages, a free camera to inspect the Wanzers, new color options, a new soundtrack, and improved visuals.
