Nintendo of America just dropped some bad news for those looking forward to the December 3rd launch of the Advance Wars remake. On Twitter, they let loose news of a Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp delay.
They say the upcoming remakes of Advance Wars and its sequel Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising will no longer be launching in December 2021. Nintendo says that it will instead arrive in Spring 2022. They say “The game just needs a little more time for fine tuning.”
Hello, troops! #AdvanceWars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, which was set to launch on 12/3, will now release for #NintendoSwitch in spring 2022. The game just needs a little more time for fine tuning. You'll be battling with Andy & friends soon! Thanks for your patience. pic.twitter.com/dSi8VSsxTH

The Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp delay would explain the lack of marketing. This is somewhat odd with the game’s original launch date a little over a month away. Of course, that will likely change heading into the spring of next year.
The original Advance Wars was released for Game Boy Advance back in 2001. It was soon followed up by Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising, which launched in 2003. The original game was so successful in the west that Nintendo then brought over its sequels as well.
The delay may have put a damper on fans excited to play the Switch remasters, but the turn-based strategy games will still be here before you know it. In the meantime, players can enjoy the Switch OLED if they have one, and other new games like Metroid Dread.
Players will utilize rockets, tanks, and planes to turn the tide of battle in their favor. The raging conflict between two nations has escalated to new extremes! Furthermore, with Commander Andy now accused of attacking two other nations, all four now find themselves embroiled in the flames of war.
