One of the many games Switch fans were hoping to hear more from during the latest Nintendo Direct was Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp.
The anticipated two-in-one game release has already suffered multiple delays and was pushed back again earlier this year due to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. Fans of the original Game Boy Advance series walked away from the latest broadcast empty-handed, so will this game ever see the light of day?
Axios Gaming reporter Stephen Totilo got in touch with a Nintendo representative not long after the broadcast concluded, asking if Re-Boot Camp had been cancelled. The update is it’s still just delayed, and a new release date will be announced in the future:
@stephentotilo I asked Nintendo if Advance Wars 1 + 2 has been cancelled, given the lack of news about it since it was delayed due to the invasion of Ukraine. Nintendo rep’s reply: “The release has been delayed. We will announce the new date once it has been determined.”
Although we haven’t really heard anything about Advance Wars since March this year, there have been some developments.
In April, a person who pre-ordered a digital copy gained access to the title early and was able to play through the first few missions – confirming the game is ready to go. In the end, Nintendo cancelled the purchase and refunded the user.
