Return to Robotic Warfare With New Story Trailer for Front Mission 2: Remake

Two sides clash in city streets in Front Mission 2: Remake.

Forever Entertainment has dropped an all-new story-centric trailer for Front Mission 2: Remake, the follow-up to last year’s remake of the very first game in Square Enix’s classic mecha-action RPG series.

As you might expect, the second game’s plot deals in part with the sociopolitical ramifications of the events of Front Mission 1st: Remake. The world’s in ever further disarray, as this dramatic trailer makes clear in between gorgeous shots of giant robots bludgeoning giant robots.

The publisher has kindly provided an overview of the upcoming war in Alordesh as well, which just so happens to be a direct transcription of the story trailer’s narration:

The People’s Republic of Alordesh is a country located in the Southeast Asian region. At the end of the 21st century, it became a part of the O.C.U. super-national union as part of a plan to help its struggling economy.

Due to the second Huffman conflict, its situation drastically worsened, and the O.C.U. became less popular among Alordesh’s citizens. In 2098, the first unsuccessful uprising flared up but was quashed.

Twelve years after the events of FRONT MISSION 1st, on June 12, 2102, the second coup d’état began. On this exact day, three main military bases and the parliament in the country’s capital city were attacked and taken over.

The O.C.U. responded to the attacks by sending their army to free Alordesh from rebel hands.

Follow the O.C.U. military squads: “Muddy Otters,” “Dull Stags,” and “O.C.U. Ground Defence Force Intelligence Agency,” and monitor the situation in this country torn apart by a ruthless civil war.

As a fan of Front Mission 1st: Remake, I’m personally pretty stoked to see where things go from here, having never played the 1997 rendition of this sequel’s storyline. You can check out Front Mission 2: Remake on Nintendo Switch when it launches June 12th for $34.99 USD.
