Diehard GameFAN: "If you’ve never heard of Front Mission before (and don’t feel bad if you haven’t), it’s a franchise traditionally known for strategy RPG’s. I usually describe it to people as being Fire Emblem or Final Fantasy Tactics, but with mechs. The first release of it we ever received in North America was Front Mission 3 in 2000, followed by Front Mission 4 in 2004. The original eventually made it overseas in an enhanced remake for the Nintendo DS in 2007. To date, Front Mission Second and Front Mission 5: Scars of War remain exclusive to Japan."
