Square Enix Planning New, "Evolved" Front Mission?S

Publisher Square Enix may be giving the Front Mission strategy series another go in North America, registering trademarks for Front Mission Evolved with the US Patent and Trademark Office.

While Front Mission Evolved could be an all-new game in the long-running mech strategy series, it could also be an older, localized take on slowly moving Wanzers around a grid. There are plenty of Japanese releases in the series that never saw the light of day in the West.

We're hoping for a current-gen release, giving PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners something pretty and amusingly plodding to play. But we wouldn't be surprised to see another Front Mission hit the Nintendo DS or PSP.
