The original two Advance Wars games are being updated for the Nintendo Switch in a new package dubbed Advance Wars 1 + 2 Re-Boot Camp. During the Nintendo Direct at E3 2021, the game was also revealed for release on December 3, 2021.
The set includes upgraded versions of Advance Wars and its sequel Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising in a new polygonal graphics style.
Advance Wars is a military-themed strategy game in which players may assemble military forces to take control of a battlefield against either AI or player-controlled opponent armies.
The original Advance Wars game was launched in 2001 on the Game Boy Advance, and a sequel with more playable nations was published in 2003. Beyond a well-received DS sequel, Advance Wars: Dual Strike, and a soft, gritty revival dubbed Advance Wars: Days of Ruin, the Advance Wars series has been relatively inactive.
Advance Wars Re-Boot Camp is a rebuild of the original Advance Wars game, removing the pixelated graphics in favour of a more 3D visual style and animated character portraits.
