Publisher Nintendo and developer WayForward Technologies have announced Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp is delayed, due to the ongoing invasion and war in Ukraine.
While Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp is delayed due to the ongoing war in Ukraine, it will forgo its previously planned April 2022 release date. Nintendo’s only reasoning was the game had to be delayed “in light of recent world events,” or the ongoing invasion and war in Ukraine.
A similar delay was made for the PC and console ports of Little Orpheus, a puzzle-platformer with heavy Russian and Soviet Russia influences.
Other companies that recently cut sales or services in Russia include Epic Games, Electronic Arts, as well as Visa, Mastercard, and PayPal cutting off services to the country. Activision Blizzard halted sales in Russia, Microsoft also halted sales and services, and Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt RED halted their sales in Russia.

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.
