Forever Entertainment has announced the worldwide release of Front Mission 2: Remake for the Nintendo Switch on June 12th, 2023. It is a remake of the second game in the Front Mission mecha tactical RPG series, initially released for PlayStation in Japan in 1997.
The remake will include improved loading speeds, a new free camera option, new Wanzer coloring options, and a refreshed soundtrack. It will also have language options in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, German, Polish, Chinese, and Japanese.
