Square Enix is releasing a game this year that doesn't even have "final" or "fantasy" in the title. Front Mission Evolved
is coming to the PS3, 360 and PC in the near future. Hollywood style production values meet an engaging storyline to put players on board a train of fun (figuratively).
All I know is that a large, customizable war machine called a Wanzer is at your disposal. It's a third person shooter with dozens of weapons and online play to boot. Do yourself a favor and check out the website
for more information!
