Front Mission: Evolved Won't Engage Until September

The new-look Front Mission should've been rarin' to go but instead, Square-Enix has decided to give Double Helix more time.

As GameSpot reports, Front Mission: Evolved won't be hitting its estimated spring launch date and will instead launch on September 14 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. The heavy mech experience will also be available in stunning 3D (which may or may not be the reason for this delay), and it will also boast an entirely overhauled look and feel. Past titles have been turn-based strategy games; this one is more like MechWarrior or Armored Core, in that it will be a real-time third-person action title. But you'll just have to wait before you can assume the role of engineer Dylan Ramsey and take control of your highly competent "Wanzer." We'll also get the benefit of now-requisite online multiplayer, which should be more incentive to give the game a try when it releases this fall. For those of you hoping for something like past entries, you're going to have to look elsewhere for your strategy fix; but if you loved Lost Planet, Front Mission: Evolved may be right up your alley.

Square-Enix is supposedly looking to produce some fresh IPs but in the meantime, there's nothing wrong with giving an old franchise a makeover of sorts...well, provided it works.

I watched some game-play videos for this . The game-play and controls look clunky even for robots.

Front mission 3 is one of my favorites, I've spent hundreds of hours playing through both story lines and collecting battle skills.

I would have liked a strategy based front mission but I'll research front mission evolved and may add it to my purchase list, it would be nice if they have bots in multiplayer for those of us that are anti-social ^_^.

My Wanzer? sounds like a penis. How's the 3D gonna function for 360?

Never played this series. Don't think I will either.

I'd be happy if this game picked up where Armored Core left off. AC4 was garbage, but I LOVED AC3. Maybe FM:E will reignite my love for mechs.

Maybe SE should release FM3 on the psn so I can play it on my fat ass PSP1000. I played a lot of FM4 on ps2 and only a little of the 3rd one for ps1. Hmm ....SE hurry up and release all those ps1 classics, PS3 has been out since what ..06? Only one I've enjoyed so far is FFVIII. I mean the EU PSN has FFIX and Vagrant Story :P

If FM Evolved has the classic RPG elements and all those skills to learn I may be interested, otherwise ...i dunno

Fantastic! Can't wait to get it!
Good, not sure if I'll buy immediately.
Eh, not bad, but I don't care.
It's just a stupid money grab.
