- Wanzer (pronounced Vanzer) - short
for Wandrung Panzer, German meaning 'walking tank'
- One final note: Don't forget to change
your defensive types (Anti-I, Anti-P, etc..) for each mission to get the
best defensive preformance out of your wanzer. Use the enemy info (at the
beginning of each mission (in the walkthrough) to determine which is best.
- The game begins
at an USN Alaska radiation laboratory base. A wanzer and a freight hauler
blast their way out of the base with a large container. The USN base forces
spring into action, but a quickly cut down by bomber. A carrier arrives
and picks up the container and takes off. This FMV is the coolest Front
Mission FMV I have ever seen!
- The game starts at Kirishima
Heavy Industries testing facility where Kazuki Takemura is testing a wanzer.
- JDF Okinawa Base
The first menu that will pop
up will be a name menu. There are 3 selections. The first one is enter
your first name, the second is to select your last name and the third option
is to confirm your selection. To just use the default name, choose the
last one (Kazuki Takemura). The scientist now has Kazuki run the tests
on the SHUNYO Wanzer.
- Your Units
- Enemy Units:
- 1.) This mission is just a tutorial mission
split up into 2 sections. The first is part is attacking a single wanzer.
The wanzer does not fight back, so its quick and easy.
- 2.) The second half is attacking another
wanzer that fights back. It is pretty easy as well. It all just gets you
familiar with the weapon systems which are almost exactly like previous
Front Mission games.
- Kazuki will next be talking to another pilot,
Ryogo and the testing engineer in the office after the mission. They all
begin discussing the JDF's forces and it's recent increase. They even discuss
what happened in Front Mission 2! Next the location menu will appear where
you can talk to Ryogo or the scientist Koike. Before you do anything, save
your game incase you decide to play the other storyline. After talking
to both of them you talk to Ryogo again. He asks you to with him to deliver
some construction wanzers. This is where you choose which storyline to
play. You have an option to play 2 different ones. Choose the first one
(go with him) and you go with him and play thestory line with Emma. Choose
the second one (don't go with him) to play the story line with Kazuki's
- Finished One Storyline?
- At the end of each of the storylines you
can save. You can start a new game from this save space and play the other
storyline. Once you start a new (2nd) game, you will notice that your charactes
get to keep their skills from the other storyline! Also your game save
timer continues from the first storyline.
