At long last, Advance Wars is back, with the long-dormant franchise receiving a remake of its first two entries on Nintendo Switch. The (hopefully) final release date has been confirmed and it's set to release this spring.


In Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, you'll be able to play fully-remade versions of the campaigns from the original GBA Advance Wars and Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising. The WayForward-developed remake is set to bring the classic strategy series from Fire Emblem team Intelligent Systems back in style.

The game had previously been delayed because of Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Despite the ongoing nature of that conflict, Nintendo has decided it's time to release the game at last.

Here is everything we know about the Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp release date and whether you can pre-order. You can also check out its latest trailer at the end of the article.

Is there a trailer for Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp?

Nintendo revealed a brand-new trailer for Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp which you can watch below to see the strategy gameplay and fancy animated cutscenes in action:

Nintendo shared this neat description of the game: "Command an army in strategic, turn-based combat as a tactical adviser for the Orange Star Army. Your expertise is needed as you move land, air, and naval units across the battlefield. Take down enemy squads and capture towns and bases to secure victory and keep the peace.

"Keep an eye on the game-changing terrain and weather as you lead a variety of units across multiple maps. This remake features two campaigns that cover the events of Advance Wars and Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising!"
