The Front Mission Translation Project

Front Mission: Series Translation Project Supports...

Over One Million visitors and counting!

Wiki Articles Fixed

- December 2023

For a long time, many of the wiki articles had missing images and broken links, the winter break has given us some time to fix many of these issues. Please report anything broken - otherwise enjoy!

Blog Theme Change :/

- August 2023

With the latest Wordpress update, the blog suffered problems using the original theme. This theme, iNove, was last updated in 2014 so we have reluctantly retired it. Some site navigation may be busted with the new theme. Please report any oddities and we will fix!

I think this issue also reflects the age of this project - we started in 2007 when most people used laptops and desktop PCs to access the internet. Almost ten years later in 2016 we moved to a "mobile first" world where access is mostly via phones.

(We love iNove though so who knows, we might even try to retro-fit the old theme for a "mobile-first" world...)

A pandemic can't bring a good Wanzer down!

Our 6-Year Anniversary!

- December 17, 2013

Time sure does fly fast because today is our 6-year anniversary since we began the Front Mission 5 translation project!

Since we began that project and continued with other projects, we've gotten nearly 800,000 visitors who wanted to know more about the world of Front Mission. It's a mighty impressive number and we're hoping that one day, we can hit the golden 1 million mark!

Take a look at our latest blog posting for our thoughts of our 6-year journey to learning more about the world of Front Mission!

Hello, everybody! We have finished our site maintenance tasks and have uploaded the final patch for Front Mission 2. You can also download it from our project blog and on our Downloads section.

Also, we have released our tribute package for the Front Mission franchise. Be sure to check out the page on our project blog for more commentary on this!

- August 22, 2013

Today marks the final release of the French edition of Front Mission Dog Life & Dog Style. More so, this is the final release of any product bearing the Front Mission name. As such, we think itís time to pay a tribute to one of the most unique works of art not only in video games, but among all media as well.

Please read our Tribute page on our project blog for more details. As we are currently doing site maintenance, you can also find our final patch for Front Mission 2 in there as well. The final patch will also be available for download here when we have completed our site maintenance.

Updating Front Mission 2...

- March 28, 2013

Hello, fans! We apologize for the lack of communication over the past few months. The team has been very busy with real-life commitments and have had little time for other things. Anyways...

Due to the programming difficulties, we have decided to stop development of our Front Mission 2 project. The remaining 30% of the text reinsertion has proven to be more difficult than expected. We would need to invest a significant amount of time to crack the encryption, and none of us on the team have that kind of free time any more.

That being said, we will polish up the current patch and will release a new revision in the near future. Don't forget that the patch package includes a supplementary script for the remaining 30% of text, so you'll still be able to get the full story experience!
