Has anyone played the original Advanced Wars games?  I used to play these a lot... they were a lot of fun.  Looks like they're re-issuing them for the Nintendo Switch.  They were originally released on the Game Boy Advanced.  There was another game, Advanced Wars Dual Strike, released on the Nintendo DS.

I'm thinking of pre-ordering this game... though the backlog is massive.   Anyone else?

Thoughts, comments?  Post it up!


I've already ordered it. I loved The first three, never played the days of ruin but the first three were fantastic. Batallion wars was awesome too. Seems like this one will take a while, PR and war in Ukraine seem to be holding it back


@targetrasp   Now you make me want to pre-order it.  I Think I might do that.  Same as you, I realllllly liked the 1st 3 and never played Days of Ruin.

I used to play this on my old GBA SP.  It was the Perfect game for handheld.



Bestbuy mysteriously cancelled my order. I was stoked to get this game over the weekend and it was just silently cancelled. I didn't receive an email, it just stopped showing up in my pending orders. "Advance Wars" didn't even show up when I typed it in searching through my orders. Had I not remembered ordering it at the same time I ordered a Series S I never would have found the cancellation.

I just reordered on best buy's site as there's nothing local to pick up, so maybe next weekend.



@targetrasp I've balked at buying this one so far.  Did you get it and is it great?


I really dig Advance Wars,and am so happy I get to play it on new hardware. I just beat the first Advance War's campaign and have gone back to 100% complete the first campaign. I really wish Dual Strike was included but I'm happy with the purchase, probably more so than normal.


@targetrasp man... I need to get this game.  I'm hoping it'll go on sale in the near future.   If I find it on sale, I'll post the sale.  This is one of those games in the past that didn't go on sale... at least from what I remember.


Rule of thumb:

If it's a first party Nintendo game and I want it It'll never go on sale UNLESS I buy it, then it'll go on sale just after. If I don't buy it, it becomes insanely difficult to find and costs more than retail OR just never goes on sale.

case in point -

5 bucks cheaper already, and i bought day one, - only Advance Wars game slept on and it's worth more now than during the release.


I think I may buy this one. It's a shame they don't have better multiplayer for it though matches could take a very long time. 

10% off right now but still $50+

Advanced wars is awesome though... outside complaints of multiplayer, it seems like this game is holding up and highly rated. - Online Shopping for Digital Codes, Video Games, Toys, Music, Electronics & more
