Long-Delayed Advance Wars 1+2: Reboot Camp Finally Has A Release Date

The game's release was put on hold after Russia's invasion of Ukraine.


At long last, Nintendo has revealed the new release date for Advance Wars 1+2: Reboot Camp. Announced during February's Nintendo Direct, the double-feature remake will now arrive on April 21, 2023, over a year after its intended release date.

A remake of Advance Wars and its sequel, Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising, Reboot Camp combines the events of both games into a cohesive, revamped, and reimagined experience. In it, you play a tactical adviser for the Orange Star Army, whose expertise is called upon to help defend your homeland. You'll be tasked with commanding your own army in strategic, turn-based combat, as well as capturing towns and bases to secure victory and keep the peace.
