Front Mission 2: Remake Delayed, Launch Date Presently Unknown

Forever Entertainment came out swinging late last year with Front Mission 1st: Remake, which our Abraham Kobylanski (and plenty of other players) have rather enjoyed. The prospect of Front Mission 2: Remake has been especially tantalizing for longtime fans of Square Enix’s long-dormant mecha series, but it turns out we’ll have to wait longer than June 2023 to see the end result.

In a new message to veteran Wanzer pilots and first-time players alike, Forever Entertainment apologizes for the delay while offering no word yet on when Front Mission 2: Remake‘s new release date. (Technically, this means the game has been “indefinitely delayed,” but the term often comes loaded with unnecessarily negative connotations!)

Dear Players,

As the premiere date for FRONT MISSION 2: Remake approaches, we have made the decision to postpone the release of the game on Nintendo Switch. This decision was not taken lightly, but in collaboration with the development team, we want to ensure that we have sufficient time to add as many functionalities as possible while proceeding with proper implementation and tests, in order to meet your expectations for a modern-day remake.

We understand the anticipation surrounding FRONT MISSION 2: Remake and the excitement you have shown throughout its development. Please rest assured that we are fully committed to delivering a polished and faithful remake of your beloved franchise.

While we are currently unable to provide a specific revised premiere date, we assure you that we are working tirelessly to complete the project as soon as possible, with the aim of releasing the game in the third quarter of this year.

Please stay updated on any development news by following our channels, including our social media profiles and Discord server.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

So it goes sometimes! It’s not like June isn’t already pretty stacked with plenty of upcoming games, including a little thing called Final Fantasy XVI. If Front Mission 2: Remake had stuck with its original target of June 12th, the upcoming mainline Final Fantasy would have been out just over a week later – while the two games are hardly alike, I do wonder if some fans of all things Square Enix might have skipped the mecha classic’s return in favor of the looming blockbuster epic.
