Front Mission being revived at Square Enix, report says

A former Chromehounds and Armored Core dev has reportedly signed up for the project.

Square Enix is developing a new entry in its Front Mission series, according to a new report.

Siliconera states that a new game is in development at Square Enix's Japanese studio, with former Armored Core producer Toshifumi Nabeshima on the project.

Nabeshima previously worked at Dark Souls and Bloodborne studio From Software, specifically on Xbox 360 title Chromehounds, which was published by Sega, and Armored Core V, which was published by Bandai Namco.

Front Mission was conceived as a narrative-driven strategy game but, over the years, has changed in significant ways. Some entries in the series have stayed true to its strategy roots while others, such as Front Mission Evolved, have been closer to the traditional mech-based shooter experience. The series has remained dormant since 2010.

Square Enix has not yet officially revealed a new Front Mission. As a result, it is unclear what type of game this will be. The company is hosting its own press conference at E3 on June 16, so it may be that the title is announced there.

Square Enix has not hosted a media briefing at E3 since 2012, where it showcased its next-gen Luminous Engine for the first time. This has led to speculation that it plans to make big announcements and show off new games.

Currently, Square Enix's in-development AAA projects include Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Final Fantasy XV, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and a new Hitman project.

E3 2015 will take place June 16-18. For more on the show and GameSpot's coverage plans for it, check out the video below.
