Weekend SCREENing: Front Mission Evolved confirmed for Spring 2010 NA release


This week Square Enix confirmed the Spring 2010 North American release of the next Front Mission subtitled “Evolved”.  The new game developed by Double Helix games takes the title to a more action oriented third person shooter genre as opposed to Strategy JRPG gameplay fans have become accustomed to.  This way both sides win.  The Japanese still get to control huge mechs in combat, and North Americans get to satisfy their fast paced shooter needs they seem to demand out of a game.  It’s a generalization I know, but the screens look good regardless.  Sean C.
