In an approach that we may consider prudent, Nintendo has announced that the revised versions of the first two Advance Wars will not appear on Switch on the date scheduled so far. An exit which will probably only be possible if the situation in Ukraine improves.
Just a month ago, Nintendo continued to promoteAdvance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camprevised versions of the two episodes released on Game Boy Advance in 2001 and 2003. The Switch was supposed to welcome these new versions on Friday, April 8.
Since Russia entered the war against Ukraine, video game observers, and more especially fans of the Nintendo universe, have been wondering about the release ofAdvance Wars 1+2: Reboot Camp. It therefore no longer seemed relevant to market a title consisting of waging war, even with brightly colored camps and the good humor of the dressing.
Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp no longer has a Nintendo Switch release date
Nintendo was he going to risk launching this compilation, with the risk of taking a volley of green wood? It would have been wrong to know the Japanese manufacturer which, through its various official Twitter accounts, finally gave Wednesday some expected news of its “remakes”.
“Due to international news, we have decided to postpone the release of Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, originally scheduled for 08/04 on Nintendo Switch. The new release date of the game will be announced later. »
It goes without saying that as long as the war continues to make the news, the title developed by WayForward Technologies will remain in the boxes. We can even envisage an unenviable scenario for the studio or Nintendo would end up releasing Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp on the sly, even if the Russian-Ukrainian tensions would have greatly eased.
In the meantime, the two original games are still available on the Wii U Virtual Console at a unit price of 6.99 euros. The eShop sheets provide information on a French language present in the first part but not the second, while the latter benefited from it on Game Boy Advance.
