Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, the remaster of the first two Advance Wars games for Game Boy Advance, will be delayed to spring 2022. The games were originally set to launch on Nintendo Switch in December. According to a tweet from Nintendo of America, the game needs a little more fine tuning before release.
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

Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp was announced during this year’s E3. Advance Wars first launched in 2001 for Game Boy Advance, and was followed by Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising in 2003. The turn-based strategy games had players controlled armies with units like rockets, tanks, and plane. Within the game’s story, two nations have been at war for years and the conflict enters new heights when commanding officer Andy is accused of attacking two other nations, escalating all four into a world war.
The game was not originally supposed to release outside of Japan, but its success in the West prompted Nintendo to introduce its sequels and other turn-based titles, like Fire Emblem, into American and European markets.
