The Advance Wars series is making a return again after a long time with the announcement of Advance Wars 1+2 for the Nintendo Switch.
Advance Wars series was originally released for the Nintendo Gameboy Advance and later received a follow-up on the Nintendo DS. It was never released on any other Nintendo system after the Gameboy Advance and DS, but there were a few spiritual successors for the game from other developers.
Nintendo is finally bringing the series back along with Metroid. They are remaking the first two games in the series with a new visual style. Have a look at the trailer below.
According to the Nintendo eShop, this collection is just 1.4 GB on the Nintendo Switch, which is quite small. Here’s a look at the description that is shared on the Nintendo eShop where they are available to pre-order now.
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!
Fight alongside capable Commanding Officers
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.
Recruit some friends and see who the superior strategist is
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.
Advance Wars 1+2: Re-boot Camp will be available on December 3, 2021, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
