Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp

Nintendo Direct February 2023 rumor

There’s a lot of smoke surrounding Nintendo right now with all sorts of rumors, but the most prominent speculation concerns the possibly of a Nintendo Direct and launch of Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp.

As far as the Nintendo Direct is concerned, Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grubb believes a new presentation could air during the week of February 6. He said the following during the Last of the Nintendogs podcast:

Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp has still yet to ship despite Nintendo originally intending to have the game ready late last year.

The game was announced at E3 2021, and was on track for a December release. But last October, Nintendo pushed it back to Spring 2022. We then had an April date this past February, but it was then delayed in March indefinitely due to the invasion of Ukraine.

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.
