Nintendo have announced remade tactical game Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp; during the E3 2021 Nintendo Direct.
A remake of Advance Wars and Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising, players must command their troops in turn-based warfare. Seize cities to keep your war-funds flowing, use the best units across land, sea, and air for the foes they will be up against, adapt to weather sapping your fuel, and rout your enemies!
Each of the Commanding Officers of the Orange Star Army and beyond have access to CO powers, their energy building as you fight. Choose who you use carefully across two campaigns, and pick your best commander in four player Versus Mode across dozens of maps.
UPDATE: In a tweet, Wayforward confirmed they were developing the game. Speaking to SiliconEra, Wayforward stated they were working with the “support and advice” of Nintendo and Intelligent Systems; the latter being the developer of the original.
You can find the announcement trailer below, along with gameplay via Nintendo Treehouse:

You can find the rundown (via Nintendo) below.
Rally the troops! Advance Wars is marching to Nintendo Switch
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.
