Front Mission 2: Remake has launched for Windows and consoles, developed by developer Storm Trident in collaboration with Forever Entertainment.

Original music for the PlayStation game is composed by Noriko Matsueda. Excerpts of arranged music by Sébastien Poncelet, featured in the previously release Nintendo Switch edition, are streaming on SoundCloud.

The direct sequel to Front Mission takes place twelve years after the Huffman conflict, shifting location to the impoverished People's Republic of Alordesh. Ash Faruk, a Wanzer pilot enlisted in the Muddy Otters battalion of the Oceanic Community Union, attempts to find a way out of the country amidst a violent coup led by Lieutenant Colonel Ven Mackarge and the Alordesh Army.

A faithful remake of the original title, Remake adds a free-roaming camera option, modernized battle scenes, and in-game effects with faster load times, a re-orchestrated music option, and localization in nine languages.

Preorders have opened for the physical edition at distributor Forever Limited. Front Mission 2: Remake is currently available for Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Series X|S consoles, along with Windows through Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store.

From the product page:
12 years have passed since the second Huffman conflict. The impoverished People's Republic of Alordesh has been suffering a severe economic decline ever since the war ended. In June 2102, soldiers of the Alordesh Army rise up and, led by Ven Mackarge, declare independence from the O.C.U. (Oceania Cooperative Union).

Ash, an O.C.U. soldier, manages to survive the ensuing battle, but Alordesh is completely overrun by the Revolutionary Army. Ash and his surviving teammates infiltrate Alordesh's chaotic underground in an attempt to escape the country. However, they soon discover that there is a huge conspiracy behind the coup.

In FRONT MISSION 2, the perspective switches between three characters: Ash, Lisa, and Thomas, creating a worldview that goes beyond a simple dichotomy between good and evil. FRONT MISSION 2: Remake preserves the mature story, strategic turn-based combat, and Wanzer customization options of the original.
