The Number 3 - December 29, 2008

3 is a special number. It is a Prime Number. There were 3 musketeers. There are 3 dimensions. Today (29-12-2008) also happens to be the 3rd Anniversary of the release of Front Mission 5: Scars of the War and we have chosen this auspicious date to release Patch 3!

This patch contains translations for the Missions and Briefings. This makes the game much more playable as they help the player understand the context and the current situation. The mission dialogue ties into the cut-scenes with the effect of making the story much clearer. Sadly a few technical issues have prevented Tutorial translations being included in this version of Patch 3. The team intend to issue a revised Patch 3 in the near future including the Tutorial translations. If you're curious about what the Tutorial translations will look like then check the screenshots.
