Author’s take: Being a fan of the Front Mission series, I’m glad they are doing something with the world established in those games. Sure, there were some bad Front Mission games, but I think they have a nice thing going with Left Alive. By not attaching it directly to the Front Mission games, it could gather a new fan base who just want to play a mech action game.
