We’re just weeks away from the release of Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp for Nintendo Switch–no, for real this time. The remade collection of the first two games in the beloved turn-based tactics series launches on April 21, as confirmed during a Nintendo Direct earlier this year. The compilation had been delayed indefinitely due to world events (the war in Ukraine). The delay wound up lasting more than a year. If you’re looking forward to playing remakes of two of the best Game Boy Advance games, Advance Wars preorders are still available.
he remakes will feature voice acting, a fast forward and rewind function, and a map editor that lets you make your own levels. Advance Wars will have both local and online multiplayer.
Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp preorder bonuses
Sadly, Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp does not come with any preorder bonuses.
Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp is, as the title implies, a remake of the first two Advance Wars games originally made for the Game Boy Advance: Advance Wars and Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising. The cult-classic turn-based strategy sees players commanding infantry and special “CO” hero units against enemy armies. Battles play out on land, air, and sea–but the tone is surprisingly cheerful and fun for a game seemingly about war, with a colorful art style and catchy tunes that belie the otherwise grim subject matter.
Development studio Wayforward is handling the remake, which features all the story content, gameplay mechanics, and versus modes of the 2D sprite-based original games remade with full 3D characters and environments.
