Following Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp’s announcement in a Nintendo Direct on Monday, WayForward published a tweet stating that it was “incredibly honored and excited” to be working on the strategy series, which first appeared in the west on Game Boy Advance 20-years-ago.
“It’s a thrill to help bring this beloved series to Switch!” It said.
Wayforward is best known for side-scrolling adventure series Shantae, River City Girls and DuckTales: Remastered.
Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp will feature remade versions of the original Game Boy Advance strategy campaigns, “reimagined and rebuilt from the ground up”.
The game will feature brand new visuals and will release on December 3.
The original Advance Wars was released on the Game Boy Advance in 2001, and was developed by Intelligent Systems.
It tells the story of the nation of Orange Star, which finds itself embroiled in a war against its neighbouring faction, Blue Moon, and the subsequent involvement of nearby nations Yellow Comet and Green Earth.
Players have to win each turn-based battle by either destroying every enemy unit on a map, or by taking over the enemy’s headquarters.
