Square Enix’s Front Mission spinoff Left Alive coming March 2019

The mech survival shooter is bound for PS4 and Steam

Square Enix will release its survival-action shooter set in the Front Mission franchise, Left Alive, on March 5, 2019, the publisher announced today. The game is set for release on PlayStation 4 and Windows PC via Steam.

Left Alive is developed by veteran mech specialists Toshifumi Nabeshima, director of FromSoftware’s Chromehounds and the Armored Core series; Yoji Shinkawa, the character designer of the Metal Gear series; and Takayuki Yanase, the mech designer who’s contributed to Mobile Suit Gundam 00 and Xenoblade Chronicles X. The game was originally unveiled at Tokyo Game Show 2017, when it was expected to be released sometime in 2018.

The story of Left Alive focuses on three protagonists who fight for survival in the war-torn nation of Novo Slava in the 22nd century. Unlike the tactical role-playing games of the core Front Mission series, Left Alive is action focused; players will battle infantry, armored vehicles and mechs known as Wanzers using traps, stealth and raw firepower.

A new trailer for Left Alive focuses on the state of the world conflict in 2127. You can watch it below.
