Two classic strategy games being remade in Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp
One of the nice surprises of today’s Nintendo Direct was Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, a full remake of the first two Advance Wars games.
Originally kicking off as Famicom Wars back on the NES in 1988, it wasn’t until Advance Wars on the Game Boy Advance that the series finally got a chance in the West. The mix of cute and colorful visuals with deep strategic gameplay was a hit with players, and the game got a sequel in Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising.
Now, both games have been remade from the ground up, and will be released together in one package on December 3rd. Nintendo later confirmed that the game would be online playable with up to four players.
