Front Mission Evolved and NIER revealed in Square’s E3 announcement

Friday, 29th May 2009 21:47 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Square Enix announced third-person shooter Front Mission Evolved in the press release for its E3 line-up today.

Developed by Double Helix for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, the strategy series is now a shooter and features both single and multiplayer campaigns. There’s no release date for it yet.

NIER was also sneakily announced in the same breath, and is being developed by Cavia for PS3 and Xbox 360. The action-adventure game is set to release sometime next year and promises to be set “in a crumbling world plagued by disease and dark, unrecognizable creatures.”

Players assume the role of Nier, who is out to find a cure for his daughter who is infected with the Black Scrawl virus.

    Oh shit didnt see it was Double Helix making it. Well there goes the Front Mission series.
    This gen Square just keeps making retarded decisions, i think they want to try to please westerners more (by making this a shooter and approching Microsoft with more games) but it really isnt paying off in any region.
    I was really looking forward to this when it was rumoured to :(

    Yeah, I thought this game was 360 exclusive.—12

    It was never a 360 exclusive, the rumour just went in that direction due to most of Squares games being on 360 this gen.
