Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp

A few days ago, we reported that Twitter user killetheth managed to gain early access to Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp. It turns out that Nintendo has since taken action.

killetheth explained the situation further in a blog post. As it turns out, there was some sort of error made by the official UK My Nintendo Store. Nintendo sent out an email on March 9 indicating that the order had been cancelled due to the game’s delay and a refund would be provided, but that never happened. The company followed up on March 15, stating that the original download code would actually still be valid at launch, so a refund wasn’t necessary after all.
