Front Mission 1st: Remake will soon be taking orders from other platforms. Forever Entertainment has announced that its mech RPG will be making its way to PC, PlayStation, and Xbox on June 30th, and there's a demo for the game available on Steam right now.

Front Mission 1st: Remake launched exclusively on Nintendo Switch in November last year, but pretty soon, you'll be able to play it outside of Nintendo's ecosystem if you want to. This news comes via a trailer uploaded to Forever Entertainment's official YouTube channel, which shows off some gameplay from the RPG remake and also reveals the new platforms and release date. You can take a look at that trailer right here.

Front Mission 1st: Remake is, believe it or not, a remake of Front Mission 1st, a PlayStation port of the Super Famicom original which added new content and story details. This remake features improved visuals and gameplay, as well as a reorchestrated soundtrack and various other improvements. All of those improvements will, of course, make their way to the PC, PlayStation, and Xbox versions of the game as well.

A remake of the second Front Mission, bizarrely titled Front Mission 2: Remake, is also in the works for Switch, although it was recently delayed to Q3 this year. We don't yet know if that remake will make its way to other platforms like the first one; it's likely to depend on how well Front Mission 2: Remake sells and reviews on Switch. Watch this space for more potential info on that.

You'll be able to play Front Mission 1st: Remake on PC, PlayStation consoles, and Xbox platforms when it launches on June 30th. In the meantime, you can play Forever's mech RPG right now on Nintendo Switch if you don't want to wait. You can also check out the demo that's currently live on the Front Mission 1st: Remake Steam page
