Editor’s Note: The war in Ukraine is an ongoing, painful and emotive topic. IGN urges community members to be respectful when engaging in conversation around this subject and does not endorse harassment of any kind.Nintendo has announced that Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp has been delayed due to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. In light of recent world events, we have made the decision to delay Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, which was originally scheduled to release on Nintendo Switch on 08/04. Please stay tuned for updates on a new release date.— Nintendo of Europe (@NintendoEurope) March 9, 2022 The Switch remake of the first two Advance Wars games was supposed to be released on April 8, but Nintendo has announced in a tweet that it has decided to delay the game “in light of recent world events”. Those events refer to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. While Advance Wars does not depict any real world conflict nor show battles in a realistic fashion, it could be considered disrespectful to release a war-focused game during a time of such crisis. No new release date has been announced for Advance Wars 1+2. It may be that Nintendo elects to wait for the conflict in Ukraine to de-escalate before making any further decision on a release date. Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp’s new release date was only announced a month ago, following the game’s delay into 2022. Matt Purslow is IGN’s UK News and Entertainment Writer.
