Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp Delayed Due To “World Events”
Nintendo has announced a Advance Wars 1+2: Reboot Camp delay. This time the delay is due to “world events”, which is likely to be a reference to the recent Russian invasion of Ukraine. No new release date has been announced at this time.
What is the reason for this Advance Wars 1+2: Reboot Camp delay?
More on Twitter, Nintendo shared the news of the delay and attributed the decision to “recent world events”. The game was originally supposed to launch for Switch on April 8, but has been delayed indefinitely. While Nintendo isn’t directly referring to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, said invasion has dominated the news for the past few weeks, so it’s almost certainly what Nintendo is referring to, especially since the company thinks maybe Advanced Wars is not the best solution for our current times.
First of all, Advance Wars 1+2: Reboot Camp is a game (or a pair of games) about modern warfare in one form or another that Nintendo might be a little nervous about releasing in the current climate. More importantly, however, is the Blue Moon faction, which is largely based on Russia and the Soviet Union. Again, Nintendo didn’t explicitly give this as the reason for the Advance Wars 1+2: Reboot Camp late, but it’s probably a mix of apprehension about those two things that’s preventing the game from releasing at this time.
When is the new Advance Wars 1+2: Reboot Camp release date?
Unfortunately, we don’t know when the game’s new release date will be. Nintendo hasn’t announced anything yet, simply suggesting that fans should “stay tuned for updates” on a new release date. The war in Ukraine shows no signs of slowing down or abating, so if Nintendo is waiting for a resolution, it may wait a while. Unfortunately, it might take some time before Advance Wars 1+2: Reboot Camp sees the light of day.
The gaming industry as a whole reacted with shock and horror to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Companies like Microsoft and GOG owner CD Projekt halted sales in Russia in response to the invasion, but this could be the first case of a game not being made by Russian or Ukrainian developers being delayed in reason for the war. Naturally, we’ll tell you more about that as soon as we have it. In the meantime, however, you’ll have to wait a bit longer for a finale Advance Wars 1+2: Reboot Camp release date, it seems.
