Front Mission Evolved Wisely Steps Out of Halo: Reach’s Way


Originally scheduled to ship on September 14th — the same day Halo: Reach launches — PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 title Front Mission Evolved has been pushed back a couple weeks to a new September 28th launch date, and it doesn’t take a genius to figure out the reason why. Although Square Enix will probably never say it, the release date adjustment is clearly a move to avoid being trampled by Halo: Reach — which it undoubtedly would have been. Smart move, Squenix!

Pre-order incentives have also been announced for Square Enix’s third-person re-imagining of the mech strategy-RPG franchise. Amazon, Best Buy and GameStop are all offering classic Front Mission wanzers, Calm and Rexon, as exclusive pre-order characters for online play. The following trailer shows the two wanzers in action.
