Sadly, it looks like the E3 announced Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp was officially delayed. Nintendo took to Twitter to announce that the remake of the original two games won’t get released until Spring 2022. It originally was going to be made available this holiday season on December 3rd. The remake will take the original’s sprite artworks and update it with a combination of hand-drawn animations for the characters and 3D stylization for the various infantry units.
As mentioned previously, this game won’t just include the original Advance Wars, but also its sequel Black Hole Rising. There’s also word that it’ll include online functionality for those wanting a chance to face off against friends. There’s no word if it’s one ongoing campaign or if the games will be available as two separate options. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater remix combined both into one game but still kept the levels separate.
We’ll see what the game has to offer, but it’s exciting to see them bring back some classic franchises. The Nintendo Switch has become a home for many classic franchises. They recently released the long-awaited sequel to Metroid Fusion titled Dread on the console and there’s hope that other long-dormant franchises might get a release.
