Advance Wars: Reboot Camp’s New Switch Release Window Is Spring 2022
Nintendo announced that Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp will be delayed until Spring 2022. This title, which was unveiled at E3, will remake all the Advance Wars games for Switch. It will also include new graphics and a multiplayer mode. The original games were released on the Game Boy Advance in 2001, 2003, and 2003 respectively. Advance Wars: Days of Ruin was the last game to be released in 2008.
Intelligent Systems developed the Advance Wars series. It is similar to the Fire Emblem series and has similar tactical turn-based gameplay. Advance Wars is not set in the fantasy world of Fire Emblem. Instead, it features a modern setting that requires the player to command tanks, bombers, and other units. Every battle is led and won by COs. These are unique characters who have special abilities to aid their side. Advance Wars Re-Boot Camp was initially scheduled to be released later in the year, just after Nintendo’s Pokemon Brilliant Diamond remakes and Shining Pearl remakes.
Nintendo of America tweeted that it would not be accurate. The original December 3 release date has been moved to Spring 2022. The tweet stated that the game needed more time to be fine-tuned. Andy and his friends will be fighting you soon! Although the exact cause of the delay is not known, WayForward may require more time to fix the game’s graphics and other modifications in the remake.
The Advance Wars developer is currently transforming the 2D graphics from the original game to make them 3D. The art style for the COs and named characters will also be updated. Finally, the soundtrack will be improved. Other changes, such as possible updates to gameplay, are yet unknown. These changes could cause the delay, or the company could simply try to free up space for other Nintendo games that will be released this year.
Advance Wars is not Nintendo’s most beloved franchise. However, with Fire Emblem’s rise in popularity, the series may find new fans who enjoy the games’ strategy and lighthearted stories. Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp focuses on the first titles of the series before complex new mechanics, and bizarre plot twists were added in later games. Re-Boot Camp is an excellent introduction to the franchise. In just a few short months, Nintendo Switch has surpassed the Game Boy Advance in total sales. This means that more Nintendo fans could be introduced to this series than ever before.
The price of the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack Subscription Service was revealed at the Animal Crossing Direct, following its September announcement at a Nintendo Direct. Although the Expansion Pack includes Animal Crossing DLC, it is still too costly.
Nintendo Switch Online has been available online since the beginning of time. This allows Switch owners to play online games and access a few emulated retro games from older Nintendo systems like the NES or Super Nintendo. The NSO + Expansion Pack offers the same features, including online multiplayer and the chance to play retro games. However, it also includes DLC. Expansion Pack subscribers can play various Sega Genesis and Nintendo 64 games and the NES, SNES, and SNES games. The included Animal Crossing DLC can be purchased separately at the eShop.
The Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack will launch on October 26 and cost $50 per annum for an individual or $80 for a family plan, including access for up to eight people. The new tier costs more than twice the base Nintendo Switch Online subscription (both family and individual) but does not deliver more value to consumers. The Expansion Pack adds unnecessary features to an already limited online service. NSO uses archaic friend code, has no party chat system, and offers similar free games to other services. It is now offering more of the same content at a much higher price.
