Tied with Metroid Dread as the best announcement from the Direct.

I was expecting a Fire Emblem announcement. Will definitely take this though, never played the series. Another day 1 purchase.

Do we know who is making this? Graphics look like the Links Awakening Remake and so I instantly though of Grezzo. They often handle remakes and so this would be right up their street.

I can’t remember if I played both, but I’m ready for a replay regardless.

Looks pretty good, I'm just glad Advance Wars is getting another chance. Missed opportunity not doing a Smash character at the same time though.

This is a good point. It would have be a great way to add to the revival. Shame. :(

Far too late to get in Smash Ultimate.

Anyway, those people clamouring for Advance Wars better put their money where their mouth is, because if this doesn't meet expectations, it's going dormant again!

I think it will depend on how it performs in Japan. It doesn’t look like they’ve added any waifus and dating mechanics into the game and so I’m expecting the franchise disappear once this releases.

Calling it now.  Wayforward are co-developing this game.

The art style SCREAMS Wayforward.

My jaw never dropped twice during any presentation, but the revival of Advance Wars did it. The mad lads. Every single Fire Emblem "leaker" going on about how IS is totally working on a remake turned out to be right... they just got the wrong franchise!

Holy shit, this is amazing. I still occasionally listen to Sami's theme, recognizing a remix for it on the trailer felt like this was tailor-made for me. Plus, Advance Wars 1 campaign with gameplay tweaks from AW2? YES, PLEASE! Advance Wars Ultimate, bitches, deal with it.

Maybe they can also remake Days of Ruin! Or just bring the COs from Dual Strike as DLC for this game (albeit tweaked for balance, Javier needs to chill). Guys, we need to make this game successful!

Not sure if it’s true or not but apparently the game didn’t even feature in the Japanese Direct. I’m aware of the history the series has in Japan but with the Switch being a success over there I would have at least thought they would give the game a push.

If anyone is looking for a bit of WayForward to tide them over, Bakugan: Champions of Vestoria is 60% off on the eShop at £15.99 until 27th June. Some Shantaes, River City Girls, Mighty Switch Force!, and Vitamin Connection are reduced too, but we all know Bakugan is the biggie.

The game allows for local and online battles for up to 4 players (confirmed in Treeouse Live).

The eShop listing implies that online play is limited to 2 players, while local multi (same system and local wireless) is 1-4 players.

Makes sense.  Most online 4 player matches would never end, as it inevitably gets filled with jerks grieving others and artificially prolonging matches.

Here’s hoping that we also get online custom map sharing! :D

I’m assuming they’ll combine the ‘Map modes’ (can’t remember the name, but the non-story battles).  I recall Advance Wars 2 included most of, if not all, of the maps from the first game.  This was one of the those moments when originally playing it that it dawned on me just how large the game was & what great value it was!
