Today Forever Entertainment announced a delay of its upcoming remake of Square Enix's mecha game Front Mission 2.
The game was supposed to release for Nintendo Switch on June 12, but looks like the developers decided it needs more time in the oven as the new target release window is Q3 2023. Apparently, this is motivated by the intention to meet the fans' expectations for a "modern-day remake."
You can read the full message below, shared on the developer's Twitter account.
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.
