Advance Wars has been dormant for many years. The series thrived during the Game Boy Advance and DS eras, but it’s been a long while since the last entry. The last time Nintendo and Intelligent Systems created a game in the franchise was in 2008, when we saw Advance Wars: Days of Ruin.

As part of an interview concerning Fire Emblem Heroes, TouchArcade asked Intelligent Systems’ Kouhei Maeda about the possibility of a new Advance Wars for mobile. Maeda worked on the scenarios for Advance Wars games back in the day.
