Just like The Last Remnant,right? Right.
I'll believe it when I'm playing it...on a PS3.
The PS3 and PC logos are already on their website. If you need further confirmation then I don't know what else to tell you. As long as this new Front Mission is nothing like the last one, which sucked, I'll be happy. Edit: Developed by the Silent Hill: Homecoming team? ROFL no thanks.
Meh, I've already said that Square's word means jack to me at this point. The support site for Last Remnant probably had the PS3 logo on it too. And what was wrong with the last - FM4? - Aside from story. And though FM5 didn't go West, the mechanics and animations looked good. Improved. Though its story was likely as bad as FM4. @RememberThe357: thanks for proving my point. Bubble up.
Whatever, FM4 was great including the story. I wish we got FM5 and I'd like to see the previous FM's brought to PSN! Wishful thinking i know.
Never heard of this.
you kidding? Front Mission, RTS tactical mech RPG? the bad part of this is that the "westernized" version of FM turned this great franchise to a TPS, squareenix did it again.... thanks microsoft
Whoooa!!! are you guys getting hostile?
Its not real time but turn based, like most Japanese strategy games.
yeah, I messed up the terms, it was TBS (turn based strategy) that's right, it's turn based, but not all JRPGs are turn based, just look at Legend of mana for an example
i dont like.....
where did you get that it was an FPS? I hope not.. strategy RPG is what i want.. i would stay up for hours playing front mission, tweaking my mechs, losing battles learning new strategies.. very underrated series in my opinion.. then again.. this is the new and improved square.. they could muck it up in the worst way... if ffxii failed i would at least be happy if this was good.
It talks about the change from SRPG to TPS in the article "Unlike the past turn-based strategy titles, Front Mission Evolved is a third-person shooter." That really sucks in my mind, they should have kept it an SRPG
So the moment Eastern devs allow Western devs to work on a major SRPG franchise we turn around and make yet another shooter. *facepalm*
Yeah, we're really showing our creativity, aren't we?
If they follow Valkyria Chronicles' footsteps and combine shooter mechanics with strategy!
I really hope this comes out. I love the Front Mission Series.
it has only the Name but it is a FPS
Really? An FPS? sigh... i'm sad now..
Technically, it is a third-person shooter.
The space squirrel beat me to it. (I hope that's the only occasion I have to write that sentence) And yes, still disappointing.
haha Tony P, have a bubble... Perhaps they shouldn't have used the Front Mission name but I don't honestly know if this would be recieved if it was a new IP. Look at the reception to Nier. EDIT: Arr, I ment for the comment 3.3
Wait until you hear more about it. Looks more like a 3rd than 1st person shooter. Probably with Armored Core type weapons customization. Add a network multiplayer/MMO component and there might be something.
@spoony: Thanks, take little something in return. ;) I hope it's not just a sales thing. It's not like taking on FF in the title. That works because FFs aren't typically related, I imagine. Taking on the Front Mission name means taking on a lot of lore and I'd hate for them to put out a title that has nothing to do with anything actually FM related. @Godmars: It'd be great to get something comparable to Japan's FM Online. That's probably thinking too grandiose though...
timed exclusive like all of the 360's trash
and if the Rumors are true than ME2 and LP2 will be announced for PS3 too, this are Time Exclusive announcements too, my prediction^^
You sound pissed lol
Not timed actually, simultaneous release.
I'm too sure about this at all but I'll try it out. EDIT: SO to the guy who disagreed. You either think this will go great or you doubt that I'll try it out?:P
don't care, sounds crap
Silent Hill: Homecoming Team? ehhh....no, thanks. I thought Silent Hill: Homecoming team belongs to Konami.
thank you come again
another XB2 exclusive lost
None of these were ever exclusive to 360 afaik.
yes its multiplat because SE doesnt pick sides...
...so why would anybody think it was going to be a 360 exclusive to begin with? :/
Look up a game called Ace Combat 6. Yeah, exactly.
Raging Sony fanboys pissed that their old favorite developer SE has catered to only the 360 thus far this gen... just a guess.
SE continues to give us disappointing, mediocre titles.
I don't know about you folks, but this comes as a huge relief to me. I've been an avid fan since the beginning of this series and I was furious that it wasn't coming to the only next-gen console I own. So glad it is. :)
Before people write this off completely consider the difference between Fallout 1&2 and Fallout 3. Also keep in mind Versus XIII. Versus is going to be a real time game and more open-world style(well Nomura said the areas will be big and open), set in a more realistic world with blood and gore and Nomura said it is influenced by third person shooters in how it plays but everyone thinks it will be great despite being a big departure from the main series style... @V: My points more that we should not write it off just yet, when it turns out to be crap feel free to point it out. We know very little about it right now so we shouldn't really judge it.
it is developed by Double Helix. So your point doesnt really apply.... oh and FO 3 sucks so bad compared to FO2.
Yea well I'll let you try it as it is from your new favorite developer on the planet. I for one want my SRPG that was one of a kind, every other srpg is typically magic happy in fantasy colorful worlds. I liked my gritty mech srpg the way it was so yes before it comes out I'll write it off because this isn't the type of game I want in the first place.
I don't believe ANYTHING Square Enix confirms anymore related to the PS3. Plus, after playing their last few console games, I don't expect anything good out of them. But then again, a totally different developer is making this game. Square Enix is just publishing it....so maybe it'll actually be a good game with the SE logo slapped onto it.
by reading this thread. Front Mission games have rocked since SNES, and i will swoop this up on PS3, as soon as it drops.
They've always rocked. :) They even top FF: Tactics for grid-based RPGs for me.
I agree to bad this isn't an SRPG the way its supposed to be.
"Double Helix Games, the same development team responsible for Silent Hill: Homecoming" please no.... i did not like that silent hill at all... if they r going to mess it up just like that silent hill don't do it i don't like Double Helix Games...
Another day another 360 sclusive to PS3
Third Person Shooter? if this is true, what a failure to the whole Front Mission Franchise. It used to be a turn-based strategy and it was great. I guess Front Mission 3 really is the last real one.
It had better still be a grid-based RPG. Or something akin to Valkyria Chronicles would work as well. Front Mission 4 was extremely similar to Front Mission 3. I played through both. :)
That sucks at least is coming to the 360.
ownership FTW :) thats where the superior "exclusives" and multiplats lie. Gaming these days rocks.
to me Front Mission games were the best SRPGs out there (FM3 and FM4 were the best parts), but considering making it a TPS is just plain wrong!!!
One less xboxers
Screw that! If I want a TPS Mech game, I'd but Gundam, Dynasty Warriors Gundam or Armoured Core (Which I already have) Damn you SE for ruining one great series by dumbing it down for the masses!
I lost all interest as soon as I read 'third person shooter'
