Square Enix announced today that a remake of Front Mission has shipped for retail in North America.
Despite several other games in the series being released for various systems, this will be the first time the original Front Mission (originally released for the SNES in 1995) has been localized for North America.
Players will use the touch screen to control units in turn based strategy with customizable robots.
"We are extremely excited to have the opportunity to present Front Mission to our North American audience," said producer Koichiro Sakamoto. "We have recreated this classic masterpiece utilizing dual screen presentation and stylus-driven controls, allowing players to experience the intuitive gameplay in a whole new way."
