You see that? That’s a skull on top of a Wanzer! The Magic Box recently unloaded a whole set of new screens for Front Mission Evolved, including what appears to be the ability to put a skull paint scheme on your Wanzer’s head.

The video itself is quite entertaining, give it a view and compare it to the original 70’s opening after the jump: Continue reading »

Of course, this is only a small preview of what to expect as Square Enix promises more in-depth tactical gameplay with the various Wanzer classes available to the player. Hit the jump for the video: Continue reading »

Yes, there are boobies on the trailer.

Yes, there are boobies in the game.

Pretty much the trailer that will sum up everything that one could expect from Front Mission Evolved (and possibly more given the screenshot). The new trailer features new in-game footage, developer interviews, and a better overall idea on what the game feels like. This possibly shows and tells more about the game besides playing Front Mission Evolved itself. Hit the jump for the new trailer: Continue reading »
