TGS 2017: Square Enix's Left Alive Is Set in the Front Mission Universe

So it's a continuation of Front Mission, but I want it as a real time tactical RPG instead.

TGS 2017: Left Alive Is Set in the Front Mission Universe -- Front Mission's Wanzers are also in Left Alive.

Square Enix's new survival action shooter Left Alive is set in the Front Mission universe.

As confirmed by Weekly Famitsu (translation via Gematsu), Left Alive uses the same world of the Front Mission series and takes place between the tactical RPG series' fifth entry and Front Mission Evolved in the year 2127.

“We wanted to make a Front Mission with a new lineup. We started this new title to see Front Mission in a slightly different perspective," said producer Shinji Hashimoto.

It's also been confirmed Left Alive will contain three playable characters, which are the three protagonists you see on the game's key visual. Throughout the story you'll bounce between each character, as they're isolated in the city Left Alive takes place in, which is somewhere in Russia.

Front Mission's Wanzers, the walking-type mobile weapons from the series, will also make an appearance in Left Alive. You'll have to battle them as well as steal a Wanzer away from the enemy.

Left Alive will also sport weapon crafting, some replayability elements with choices that'll have an affect on the story, and a stage-based structure. The developers are hoping for online elements, but nothing's set in the stone just yet.
