<b>Figureheads</b> – Front Mission mecha collaboration arrives next week

With Soul Worker grabbing all the online gaming headlines in Japan, it is important to be reminded Square Enix is still trying its best to enter the PC gaming business. Figureheads is the developer’s latest entrant, which circles around mecha PVP matches. The second official IP collaboration (after Xenogears) will be with Front Mission, a classic mecha console franchise, arriving on 7 April.

Known as 2Foots, the in-game faction known as Gordon Iron Works will be manufacturing the Front Mission machines. As usual, there are 3 different basic modes, being Lightweight (Sniper, Engineer), Middleweight (Assault, Support), and Heavyweight (Striker, Heavy Assault). I am still surprised Figureheads is not available on consoles in Japan, with no plans now for an English launch.
