One of the games that Switch fans hope to hear more of in the latest version of Nintendo Direct is Advance Wars 1 + 2: Re-Boot Camp.
The much-anticipated two-in-one game’s release was repeatedly delayed and pushed back earlier this year due to ongoing crisis in Ukraine. Fans of the original Game Boy Advance series walked away empty-handed with the latest broadcast, so will this game ever see the light of day?
Axios Gaming reporter Stephen Totilo reached out to a Nintendo representative shortly after the broadcast ended, asking if the Re-Boot Camp program would be cancelled. The update is still only delayed, and a new release date will be announced in the future:
@stephentotilo I asked Nintendo if Advance Wars 1+2 has been canceled, due to lack of news about it as it was delayed due to the invasion of Ukraine. Nintendo rep replied: “The release has been delayed. We will announce a new date once it has been determined.”
While we haven’t really heard of Advance Wars since March of this year, there have been some evolution.
In April, one person pre-ordered a digital copy get access to the title soon and was able to play through the first few missions – confirmed game ready to go. In the end, Nintendo canceled the purchase and refunded the user.
