If you’ve been wondering why Nintendo has been a bit quiet in regards to the upcoming Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, a remake of the first two Advance Wars games, it’s because this turn-based tactical combat game has been delayed. It was announced this morning that it will instead release sometime in spring 2022.
Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, which is being developed by WayForward, was originally set to launch later this year on Dec. 3, 2021, but Nintendo stated on its official Twitter account that the game needs a bit more time for fine tuning.
The remake was announced during Nintendo’s E3 2021 Direct. If you’re not familiar with Advance Wars, here is the official description of the game:
“Command an army in strategic, turn-based combat as a tactical adviser for the Orange Star Army. Your expertise is needed as you move land, air, and naval units across the battlefield. Take down enemy squads and capture towns and bases to secure victory and keep the peace. Keep an eye on the game-changing terrain and weather as you lead a variety of units across multiple maps. This remake features two campaigns that cover the events of Advance Wars and Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising!
Defend your land with the help of Andy, Max, Sami, and other Commanding Officers, each with their own specialties and CO Powers. Andy can repair units, while Sami can boost the abilities of troops. Your opponents can use CO abilities of their own too! Throughout both campaigns, the COs you meet play a critical role both on the battlefield and in the story.
When you aren’t busy keeping the peace in one of the two campaign stories, flex your army-commanding chops in Versus Mode. Up to four players can battle on dozens of maps. Each player chooses a CO from either campaign and can strategically use their CO Powers to turn the tides of battle. Customize your combat with options like funds per allied base and fog of war.
