Front Mission 3 Media

Front Mission 3 seems to be a creative mixing of Xenogears and Final Fantasy Tactics. It has mech-type vehicles (not sure on the exact name) in a futuristic setting with FFT-style battles.

What many owners of the demo may not know is that in addition to the two stages one can complete, there is a third one that appears as an option on the title screen after beating the first two. The selection is called "Extra 1" and it should be located under the "Movie" option. Now, since I don't know any Japanese, how it appeared is sketchy, but I will give you as many details as possible so our fluent Japanese readers can help us with more information (hint, hint ^_^).

I've played completely through the demo three times and only two things were different when I finally gained access to this new stage. One thing was that I got a platinum rank on the first stage rather than the usual gold. Also, on the second stage, I must have done something to trigger additional forces because instead of the three enemies I usually encountered, two more entered the battle part way through the stage.

Anyway, the third stage takes place in an urban setting. There was a tank and two guys in mech-type vehicles. When I beat them, a very tall machine with four skinny legs came out and attacked. When I beat that thing, it was all over.

I hope this secret will be of use to owners of the demo. Again, more information would be appreciated and if enough surfaces, it will be included in a follow-up.

Here's the media:

Screen Shots - 56 screens from the two videos, game play, and even the third stage!

Music - Real Audio files of the background music from the two videos.

Movies - The two movies included in this demo.
