We were convinced that Square Enix
would never bring Front Mission 1st
stateside, leaving us to languish with only fantasy-based SRPGs
for the duration of our handheld's life. Front Mission's
"marketing blog" says that won't be the case, and if we're to believe the sweet whispers they've murmured into our ears when the lights are out and everyone's asleep, the localization process is already well underway.
The team hasn't show much beyond a single English-translated screenshot from one of the futuristic mecha game's cutscenes, but we expect to be hit with more media once the North American version is officially announced. As of now, the only bit of information we've heard is that the US title won't be suffixed with the 1st
numbering, shortening it down to just Front Mission
