Toriyama is directing the new Front Mission? Or is he bringing back Parasite Eve?

Motomu Toriyama said he'd reveal his new title in 2015 and recently Siliconera revealed a new Front Mission title is in development. Toriyama is no stranger to the Front Mission series having worked on Front Mission Evolved as the Senior Scriptwriter and as the Design Director on Front Mission Evolved said "he has a real love for the series".

Another possible title is Parasite Eve, Square Enix said in their fiscal report that they're rebooting old IPs, and Parasite Eve made a cameo in the Final Fantasy VII Remake trailer and Toriyama was the Scenario Director on The 3rd Birthday.

The only other situations which appear possible now is a Final Fantasy spin-off or a new IP. The dream of Final Fantasy X-3 appears over at least until the Final Fantasy VII remake is completed.

It won't be Parasite Eve. They've said in the past that the reason The 3rd Birthday happened is because they no longer have the rights to Hideaki Sena's story (Mitochondria Eve, Mitochondria mutations etc) or the name "Parasite Eve," and could only make a game using their original characters. It doesn't seem like Sena is interested in selling them the rights again.

I really hope that they leave it alone. T3B had fun gameplay, but that story was abysmal.

What do you think his title is then?

Can't say @Sora96 isn't dedicated... ha ha ha

Front Mission used to be one of my favourite series (back when the original came out). I always feel that Square-Enix did a horrible job keeping this series along with the Mana series. It will be nice of Toriyama is working on a new FM.

Haha, just really want to know what my favourite director is up to.
