In an interview with Weekly Famitsuu, Front Mission mastermind Toshirou Tsuchida and producer Kouichirou Sakamoto talked about their newest project, Front Mission 2089: Border of Madness for DS and the series' future.
Sakamoto already produced the first DS-based Front Mission title, the remake of Front Mission 1. His current project, Front Mission 2089: Border of Madness was originally released for mobile phones in Japan. However, series fans apparently were not into playing the game on their mobile phones. Many still wanted to play the game, though, and hence Square Enix decided to bring the game to Nintendo's handheld platform. System-wise, Front Mission 2089: Border of Madness will be based on Front Mission 1. Furthermore, the development team has chosen to update both visuals and scenario for the DS release.
Meanwhile, Tsuchida explained that he was not done making Front Mission games any time soon. The series' general producer apparently wants to create a new installment aimed at people interested in seeing a completely new Front Mission.
