During today’s Nintendo Direct, the company announced that the first two installments in the Front Mission series are coming to Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo confirmed that the remake, Front Mission 1st, will arrive on the company’s hybrid gaming console sometime this summer. The company also confirmed that a remake for Front Mission 2 would arrive on Switch as well, though no release date or launch window was provided.

Front Mission was originally released in Japan in 1995 on the Super Famicon, though players in the United States would have to wait until 2007 when the game was ported to the Nintendo DS. While a remake of Front Mission 2 will mark the first time that game will have been released outside of Japan since its initial release on the PlayStation in 1997.
