A bit of bad news for Advance Wars fans. The remake of Advance Wars 1 and Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising, Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, was originally slated for a December 3rd release on the Switch, has been delayed until next year. Nintendo revealed this in a Twitter update, and stated that the reason for the delay was for “a little more time for fine-tuning”.
Hello, troops! #AdvanceWars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, which was set to launch on 12/3, will now release for #NintendoSwitch in spring 2022. The game just needs a little more time for fine tuning. You'll be battling with Andy & friends soon! Thanks for your patience. pic.twitter.com/dSi8VSsxTH

“Spring 2022” means that here in Australia it’ll be more like Autumn, which is a bit of a bummer. But it’s always better to delay rather than to rush something out that isn’t finished, especially a remake of a series that hasn’t had seen a new game since 2008. Advance Wars has a small but adoring fanbase, and the hope is that if Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp does well, it could lead to brand new titles in the future.
