Advanced Wars 1+2 Boot Camp is seeing another delay, but while the first one that happened at the end of last year was because the remasters needed “little more time for fine tuning,” this latest, indefinite delay is because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
In a post on Nintendo’s social channels, the company said it made the decision to push the Switch collection out of its originally projected April 8 release date “in light of recent world events.” It gave no new release date or window, but given that there’s no telling how long the conflict in Ukraine is going to continue, it seems most likely Nintendo will hold the strategy game until it feels appropriate to release it.
The full tweet reads as follows:
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 April 8th. Please stay tuned for updates on a new release date.
