Yea I have my copy here and there are a total of 8 shots in all mostly small pics although 2 are larger environment screens. The other screens are mostly shots of a few different mechs.

One shot says: A close look at the map reveals City-area town names (Jersey City, Newark, Hoboken, ect.)

The other larger environment shots have one of Manhattan and another shot of the Hudson River.

Another shot says: Giant robots? confirmed. But will it be stratgey or, ahem, more than meets the eye.

This is what it says although they pretty much give it away with this 2 page article;

Square Enix brining new mystery title to Xbox 360.

Oh, surprises... we love surprises!

......

All they'll tell us is that this new game is based on one of their existing IPs, so a little research narrows the candidates considerably. Mechs? A futuristic city? Well at the risk of being taken out by the Sueenix lawyer ninjas, we'd have to guess that the mystery title rhymes with "Brunt Fission." If this ends up being true, then can we expect more of the tactical brand of role- playing strategy that the mech series is well known for? Of do the creators have something different in mind for the shooting loving xbox crowd?
Apparently, all will be revealed at E3 in June. Check back next issue and we'll have all the answers.

I should have my next issue a good bit before E3 actually.

I can't see this title being an old school strategy game. Those don't sell in big enough numbers anymore to warrant this style of gameplay.

Well since the title is coming out for 360 (ps3 as well?) I would probably say no to this.

FUCK YOUR PESSIMISM! Old-school strategy is coming to kick the 360, one turn at a time.

Will be AMAZED if this is exclusive though.

It pretty much says it's not straight strategy. It could be like Valkyria. I think it is gonna be like MechAssault.

I think the games are pretty cool, I just couldn't get into them for some reason. I watched a friend play FM3 I think and thought it looked cool but when I played it I almost fell asleep at the wheel.

Hopefully the new one doesn't have that effect on me, because I'm intrigued.

The rumor was: Exclusive Front Mission heading to 360, but exclusive Square sequel heading to PS3.

Don't know if that still holds or what now that Square wants to make multi-plat games.

Well considering this fact it may very well be so, I mean sooner or later we are going to have to see this. My enthusiasm remains rock solid.

Kind of doubt it will be a SRPG like the previous games, but I certainly wouldn't complain if it turned to be one. My bet is that it is some sort of squad-based online mech shooter. Maybe an evolution of Front Mission Online with less massive (and no fees) and more action?

Could you list to me some srpg that in recent years has performed better than what FM5 did in Japan (206k)?

Oh and... funny thing about how there's no Platforms announced. They might have a bit of a problem there.

You're gonna get disappointed. Another TLR-kind of deal on the way, methinks.
