FRONT MISSION 1st: Remake is a refreshed version of the classic tactical RPG released in 1995 for the 16-bit SNES console. The new edition was developed by Polish studio Forever Entertainment.

Plot

The game takes us to the year 2090, to the times when battles are fought mainly using mechs known as wanzers. The action takes place on a fictional island Huffman, located somewhere in the Pacific, which for many decades has been a place of military conflicts. FRONT MISSION 1st: Remake tells the story of the most recent war, which involves two factions. One is the forces of the United States of the New Continent/USN, the superpower formed after the merger of all the countries of North America and South America. The other is the Oceania Cooperative Union/OCN, which includes Australia and the nations of South Asia once Southeast Asia.

FRONT MISSION 1st: The Remake offers two story campaigns, one each for the USN and OCN, allowing us to explore both sides of the conflict. The two storylines are closely intertwined and only by playing through both can we fully understand the story.

Game mechanics

FRONT MISSION 1st: Remake keeps the basic gameplay mechanics from the original. So we get a classically realized tactical RPG. The game focuses mainly on completing combat missions, in which we command a small squad of mechs. Skirmishes are played in turn-based system. Wanzers are powerful machines in which arms, legs and the body of the machine have separate "life points", and destroying a given section affects the operation of the entire unit. During the game we also encounter many other types of enemies, including tanks, mobile combat platforms or infantry soldiers.

Between missions we go to cities and bases where we can talk to characters and modify mechs. The game offers an extensive system of configuring and upgrading machines, allowing us to install various weapons, armor, on-board systems and accessories such as backpacks with extra power, allowing us to use weapons that normally exceed the capabilities of a given mech.

Game modes

FRONT MISSION 1st: Remake offers a single player mode only.

Technical aspects

The project is a full remake. While the original was made in 2D, the new version offers fully 3D graphics. However, the graphics was designed in a way that preserves the style and atmosphere of the original.
