We've been excited about Front Mission: The First
since we saw the remake's trailer
last month. While Square Enix's
mecha-based SRPG has a cult following in the states, none of the original game's various versions have ever made it to the US. If you've been thinking about importing this introduction to the Front Mission series, you're in luck! Play Asia has the game on sale for $19.90 (while stocks last), less than half the price of what eBay
stores are asking for!
Political-drama-based plots are usually awash with text, but since the game's menus are already translated into English, Front Mission: The First
should still be playable even if you don't know any Japanese. It's not like there are any good SRPGs
released in the west yet, anyway.
