The article said console releases specifically, 2089 I and II were DS games.
Making distinctions by platforms is weak IMO but I do get why they went with that logic.
Also, 2089-II is on DS? I only saw it on mobiles.
Frankly, a true FM6 would be exciting. And having guys from Armored Core working on a game could be cool ... though that also makes me think it won't be a traditional entry in the series.
You mean like, FromSoftware collaborating with SQEX? That sounds extremely bizzare and I don't know if that ever happened before. It is an interesting idea either way.
