Kurt, who recently discovered a rare Wing Commander 2 FM Towns, was kind enough to snap us a new set of pictures showing what was inside the box! The FM Towns was a type of Japanese computer used in the 1990s, one of the first home systems to offer a CD-ROM. Many classic games were released as enhanced 'talkie' versions for the FM Towns, including various LucasArts adventures and Origin's own Ultima VI. Four Wing Commander ports are known to exist, including Wing Commander, The Secret Missions 1 & 2, Wing Commander 2 and Wing Commander Armada. You can find the original story here.

GameTrailers has posted yet another video of Wing Commander Arena's single player space station melee mode. The 1:36 minute video shows off combat from the game's FreeLancer-style 'behind the ship' angle. It actually shows one of the few uses for this 'coolest looking' camera perspective that I've found so far - navigating the hazed dome area of this level. You can watch it online here.

Be aware that Arena features many different maps and modes - including ones like Capital Ship and Bearpit which are a lot more exciting than the cool space station we've seen over and over in these videos.
