Front Mission Evolved screens confirm cockpit, lady pilot

It’s been a long time coming, but the robot game dry spell that has bedeviled sci-fi fans for the longest time may be coming to an end. Front Mission Evolved, Square Enix’s action-oriented, er, evolution of the classic strategy franchise is due in September.

That wait might still be a little long for some, but now we’ve got a few screenshots to tide us over. And they’re quite educational, as they confirm that yes, girls do pilot big war machines, that someone threw away their last chance to save themselves, and that Wanzer cockpits are actually quite roomy. It’s a bit surprising, considering how cramped the typical fighter-jet or tank cockpit is.

While I’ve my own mild reservations about seeing another turn-based strategy franchise try out the real-time tip, I’m actually rather excited about Front Mission Evolved. Are you?
